    The speech


    Face to face


    Bonjour. To what extent is your programme research oriented?  


    Can you give more details about the regular track? And is there any specific field within the financial sector that students are better prepared for in terms of knowledge and capacity in this track?  

  • 07:26

    Hi, I am a little bit confused: are you a research-based university or a business school? 


    How is the CFA track designed in terms of practicality to pass the exam? And what percentage of students of the track passes the exam at the end of the academic year? 


    Expert question


    Expert question: Why is this master designed to have two different paths: regular programme and CFA preparation? Why should that bring an added value for candidates to choose your programme out of all masters in finance?

    I am not yet decided on whether I will enter directly into the job market or do a doctoral degree. Should I know the answer before applying for the programme or can I choose once I enter? Olga, how was it for you?


    Your programme has a support from the CREM (Research Center for Economics and Management). Could you give us some information about CREM, and is there any possibility to work and participate with the center? 


    How international is the student body and faculty members of the programme?


    Hi. What are the important criteria in the motivation letter that the admission's office look at? What about during the interview?
