The Department of Economics and Finance and the Department of Business and Management are pleased to present the new master's degree program in Corporate Finance.

The degree program, by focusing on the interactions among corporations and financial markets, reflects objectives common to both Departments and covers the areas of financial economics, financial management, business planning and valuation, mergers and acquisitions (M&A), capital markets, asset pricing, risk management and derivatives.

With the objective of achieving a stronger specialization of their professional profiles and making them more attractive for the potential employers, the students will have the possibility, after a common basis of core courses, to choose two different tracks.

On the other hand, the major in Financial Advisory and Investment Banking will concentrate on financial analysis and valuation, corporate investment banking, private equity and capital markets (both equity and bond markets), financial restructuring and structured finance.
