Overview

Finance is ultimately about taking optimal and strategic decisions in an uncertain environment, which applies to all areas of business. A modern manager requires good insight into the drivers of the financial situation of an enterprise, which is intimately connected with its success. 

The Master of Science programme in Finance offered by BI Norwegian Business School , therefore, will provide you not only with the required education for a career in finance and consulting, but also a strong basis for management positions in a broad range of industries. BI's Department of Finance is ranked in the top ten in Europe, giving you a solid foundation as a starting point and an education that is recognised internationally.

What you will learn?

The purpose of the programme is to provide the best possible education and environment for the development of well-trained, knowledgeable and socially responsible professionals for finance and other related positions. At the same time, since Finance is a quantitative and analytical subject, students will develop these skills, which are transferrable to all other business disciplines. These skills form the basis for critically assessing problems and being able to make optimal and strategic decisions.
