Modern learning approach We provide an optimal mixture between teaching of theoretical frameworks, case studies, guest speakers, company visits, business simulations and practical projects and assignments. On top of that, our courses are entirely ran on iPad. This means that no more paper and binders need to be carried along. Digital delivery of course materials enables participants to carry all their course materials with them to have them available when they need them. Finally the iPad delivery also enables extra and richer interactivity, both in class and afterwards. Combination of learning and working The MBA-FSI covers a period of 22 months (including graduation), in which two-week residential modules of classes, group work, etc. are followed by self-study periods during which assignments (e.g. literature, case-preparation, thesis, etc.) have to be completed while you continue working.

Programme Approach During the programme, general management knowledge and skills are combined with in-depth insights into the business economics of the financial sector.

Taking these two perspectives into account, this programme provides high potentials with the necessary training to pursue a successful career in today’s fast changing financial services sector. Curriculum During the six residential modules of the programme, participants acquire a firm understanding of the most recent developments in the different management disciplines.
