Develop your expertise in international finance in 12 months

This 400-hour programme, one third of which is taught in English and on the trading floor, takes place over one year and is organised in two parts:

  • a period of 4 months of intensive courses from September to January
  • placement in a company in France or abroad, starting in February and lasting a minimum of 4 months

The programme ends with a professional thesis based on a company problem and involves the solid application of acquired tools and concepts. It is overseen by an academic advisor with several monitored steps (methodology, progress report, etc.) before its final submission and oral defence.
