About

The Master in Finance at the University of Ulm is a two-year program that blends finance and mathematics. It is quantitative yet practical. Not just according to rankings, Ulm is an excellent place for studying finance. The program, which is taught in English, includes courses from mathematics, applied mathematics, finance and insurance.
