MoF goes Tech

Fintech, data analytics, artificial intelligence and machine learning – Handling Big Data is not a new concept but there is no doubt that these trends will require a certain skillset of our students and graduates. 

More Less

It will be more crucial than ever that our MoF graduates can handle, analyse and interprete big data and apply them in a finance context. Therefore, we have incorporated some of these elements into the MoF curriculum: 1) by designing a new core module “Data Analytics and Machine Learning in Finance” and 2) by introducing Python as the second standard programming language (beyond VBA/Excel)  into a number of introductory and advanced modules.

The feedback from employers, alumni and students has been very positive: Tech to Finance transition


Our Master of Finance programme combines both a structured approach and gives our students the flexibility to set their own focus by specialising in one of four concentrations.

Semester 1

Statistics & Econometrics

This module lays the foundations of general statistical principles with an underlying focus on economic and financial applications. Concepts studied include probability, probability distributions, confidence intervals and regression analysis. The module aims for you to understand the difference between randomness and systematic skill, especially in the context of financial and economic management. 


Macro- & Monetary Economics

This course aims to familiarise you with key concepts of macro- and monetary economics. More specifically, it introduces you to the concepts of Neo-Classical and Keynesian macroeconomic models by covering the labour, goods, capital and money markets, in addition to their respective implications in the application of monetary and fiscal policy as tools for stabilising the price level, as well as generating output and creating employment. In the monetary economics section the course focuses on the functions of money, the money supply and monetary policy transmission process, targets, rules and strategies as well as monetary policies in small open economies.


Financial Statement Analysis

This module focuses on external financial reporting, including principles of financial statement preparation, their interpretation and evaluation.  The first classes lay foundational knowledge about standard-setting principles and how they translate into actual financial reports.  Students further gain an understanding on managerial incentives in external reporting and in the resulting need to critically evaluate such reports from an outsider perspective, including empirical assessments of accounting quality and approaches for detecting earnings management. We will discuss how to make inferences about strategic and operating business decisions using ratio analyses, highlighting how managerial decisions have direct consequences in financial reports.  The course concludes with a discussion of credit analysis, i.e., the evaluation of a firm’s creditworthiness based on their financial reports, and some insights into forecasting (pro-forma) financial statement for equity analysis, business development, consulting, etc.


Foundations of Finance

This module introduces you to the fundamental tools of modern corporate finance and asset valuation.
You will learn how to apply the present value rule and no-arbitrage arguments to value stocks, bonds and plain-vanilla derivatives. Mean-variance portfolio choice is also introduced and includes an in-depth look into the Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM) and the efficient market hypothesis.
You will also cover the analysis of financial decision making within a firm. This includes choosing projects that firms should invest in (capital budgeting) and choosing specific financing for these projects (Financial Structure Decisions), where the Modigliani and Miller (1958) theories are used as a key starting point. 


Prof. Francesco Sangiorgi

Financial Products & Modelling

This module gives you the ability to value and apply the most important financial instruments in different contexts. These include stocks, bonds and derivatives including swaps, FRAs, futures, options and credit derivatives. The module also gives an introduction to financial modelling using Excel and VBA. You are expected to utilise the resources in our Finance Lab and to complete the Bloomberg Markets Concepts tutorial. 


Semester 2

Luxembourg Offsite

The Luxembourg Offsite is a three day trip integrated into the compulsory “Responsible Management in Finance” module.

You will be given an introduction to Luxembourg as a European Financial Centre and the career opportunities that it offers. This is done through networking activities with our Luxembourg based FS Alumni and Corporate Contacts, and also allows for teambuilding amongst students.

You will learn about sustainability in finance through working on case studies and attending an exclusive lecture by Prof. Dr. Hakan Lucius, Head of Corporate Responsibility and Civil Society at the European Investment Bank. The lecture explores investing in a sustainable matter, how to integrate sustainability into finance, and the implications of environmental sustainability on finance.

Corporate Finance

This module focuses on corporate governance, corporate investment decisions, corporate financing, and payout policy. You will take the position of a corporate decision makers that applies analytical methods in real-life case studies. The course will enable you to design corporate governance structures, make educated investment and financial decisions, and evaluate corporate financial decisions.


Risk Management

In-depth exposure to market and credit risk allows you to grasp the theories and significance of risk management in financial institutions. On completion, you will be able to apply risk measurement and management to banking scenarios.


Data Analytics and Machine Learning in Finance

This module allows you to become familiar with the possibilities of computing and analysing in the area of big data. Beginning with grasping a thorough understanding of computers as a tool in the area of big data (i.e. programming), you will learn how to handle data and later develop data analysis and machine learning skills. Frankfurt School will then prepare you for applying these teachnical concepts to financial problems.


Responsible Management in Finance

Management in finance, although extremely rewarding, leaves you with challenges concerning personal values, conflict, power management and influencing.

The Responsible Management in Finance course addresses these challenges by viewing the finance professional as a steward of the global economy.

You will learn to apply your fully-formed and creditable values to the workplace. We cover key insights of behavioral ethics and work in groups to distinguish what helps and hinders ethical expression. Physically practicing methods of ethical expression that are demonstrated in the Giving Voice to Values and Values Education curriculums, prepares you for the real working world.

You will also explore economic stewardship, defining corporate power, the means of earning it and the necessity of legitimacy. We use stakeholder analysis, including the stakeholder ‘hats’ or capacities, to investigate the social and environmental impacts of business, whilst simultaneously learning about the evolving expectations of business and considering human rights.

Finally, you will learn about the important role that corporate governance structures and processes (and the growing willingness of shareholders to use them) have assumed in aligning corporate behavior with the expectations of shareholders and other stakeholders.
