Teaching methodology

The Master’s Degree in International Finance has been designed so that participants can enhance the knowledge, competencies and skills they need for a successful career. It is therefore a postgraduate program that combines academic rigor with the necessary practical approach to the worlds of business and finance. The various methodologies used in the different subjects are designed to ensure that this theoretical/practical approach will be adopted throughout. During the Master’s Degree program in International Finance, students work with the following learning methodologies:


Lectures and analysis of technical notes

Analysis and discussion of case studies

Sessions with guest speakers

Teamwork and presentations

Financial modelling and simulations

Reading and individual research

Mentoring and career guidance sessions



The grading system is based on constant evaluation throughout the program taking into account, among others, active participation in class, practical work, case studies, etc. The professors therefore grade students in line with their specific teaching programs and with the final examination for each subject. Class attendance is mandatory. Unjustified absence from more than 10% of classes in a single subject may imply a fail in that subject. All participants must pass 100% of the subjects as well as the End-of-Master’s Degree Final Project.

Participants must be familiar with information technologies, especially the use of Excel (or other similar spreadsheets). CUNEF can provide students with a laptop (on loan during the academic year) for use on class work, study or analyses required by professors.
