The global financial system is providing us with more challenges than ever before. As a response, the financial sector is increasingly looking for individuals who not only have a deep understanding of financial markets, new financial products, risk control and the new financial structures emerging from the credit crisis, but also a competent knowledge in business management. However, young professionals with this kind of expertise are still hard to find.

In response to this, IE has launched its Dual Degree Master in International Management + Master in Finance. This Dual Degree will combine IE’s prestigious Master in International Management program with the sophisticated and deep financial education provided by the Master in Finance, ranked No.2 worldwide by Financial Times in June 2011. Our Master in International Management covers all the core fields of business such as entrepreneurship, strategy and accounting, whereas our Master in Finance looks at cutting edge fields such as corporate social investment, securitization, leveraged buyouts, behavioral finance and Islamic finance. All this is led by our dedicated faculty, 93% of whom are leading practitioners.

Dual Degree students will graduate in 17 months and start the Master in International Management from February to July and then, instead of taking the specialization course of Sales & Marketing, International Business or Digital Business in their 3th period (September – December), they will join the complete Master in Finance program from September to June of the following year.
