MBA-FSI: 15 years of excellence in developing financial services executives

The MBA-FSI started its first edition in January 1999. Twenty-two participants, coming from six different countries, enrolled for this edition, which clearly had a European focus. In the meantime, 6 more groups completed the programme, which over the years adopted an increasingly global approach by adding modules in North America and China. Currently, the eighth MBA-FSI edition is running. Twenty-four participants from ten different countries worldwide started their journey in November 2012 and will graduate in October 2014.

Within its 15 years of existence, the MBA-FSI programme has developed from a European entrepreneurial initiative into a global, international executive education programme. The joining of HEC Montréal as an organising partner and the collaboration with BiMBA in Beijing and ITAM in Mexico, are excellent examples of how this programme has established collaborations with highly regarded international institutions and faculty improve the programme and increase its scope world-wide..

Being in business for 15 years now, the MBA-FSI offers you all the advantages of an established executive MBA programme through its globally established network and its experienced faculty and staff which guarantee a unique learning experience which you will cherish forever!
