The 3-semesters, full-time English-language program provides you with an in-depth understanding of the principles and practices of international Finance and Economics.
The International Finance and Economics program from at Technische Hochschule Nürnberg allows for specialization by choosing special electives in Finance and Economics. Furthermore, the program offers both practical and international experience and prepares students for a wide range of career opportunities, e.g. in the global financial industry.
A student can for instance choose from 6 to a maximum of 24 ECTS in finance electives in addition to the compulsory ones. The same is possible for a specialization in economics. Students also have the chance to spend one semester abroad.
The mandatory and elective modules of the Finance and Economics Master program allow students to focus on segments in Finance and Economics which interest them most .Our alumni are employed at finance departments of companies, financial institutions (banks, insurance companies, asset management) as well as public entities (i.e. organizations for economic development). They work in various areas like corporate finance, trading, risk management, advisory, M&A or similar at companies such as Bosch, Siemens, Eurex, BNP Paribas, Unicredit, KfW or in organisations specialized in financial and economic policy.Academic options after you've earned your master’s degree
