The globalization set in motion during the last century is consolidating in this 21st century. Social affaires, the world of culture, politics and the economy are breaking national boundaries and jump vertiginously from one continent to another. The world of finance is not outside the globalization we are experiencing; indeed, financial markets are probably the main exponent of the international character of relations between people.

Any professional who aims high, searching for achievement and great success in the financial environment should therefore be thoroughly prepared, both technically and internationally.
The IEB, as leader in financial training in Spain and the Iberoamerican region is promoting this Master in International Finance aimed at those professionals who aspire to elite positions.

The world of finance is not outside the globalization we are experiencing; indeed, financial markets are probably the main exponent of the international character of relations between people.

Any professional who aims high, searching for achievement and great success in the financial environment should therefore be thoroughly prepared, both technically and internationally.
The IEB, as leader in financial training in Spain and the Iberoamerican region is promoting this Master in International Finance aimed at those professionals who aspire to elite positions.

The Wharton School Academic Stay
Part of the course of study for the Master in International Finance degree will take place at the Wharton School. Students will attend lectures delivered by both Wharton and IEB faculty on Wharton´s Philadelphia campus.

The week in the U.S. also includes a trip to New York City. Students will visit Wall Street and the NYSE, as well as various firms in Manhattan´s financial district.

While students are in Philadelphia, some of the lectures will be delivered at the Racquet Club of Philadelphia, the oldest and most exclusive club in the city.
The Wharton School was founded in 1881 at the University of Pennsylvania. It is the world´s first collegiate school of business, and is recognized internationally for its global leadership in finance.

Wharton has the largest, most cited business school faculty, with 265 standing faculty and associate members in 11 academic departments. The school is also home to more than 25 research centers and initiatives. More than 12,000 executives attend Wharton´s executive education programs each year, and Wharton has more than 84,000 alumni in 140 countries around the world.

During the period of time in Wharton School, part of the lectures will be given in the Racquet Club of Philadelphia, the oldest and most exclusive club of the capital of Pennsylvania. The program includes a stay in New York visiting Wall Street and other entities in the Financial District.

Students will also have the opportunity of attending, at no additional cost, one of the Specialization Programs given by the IEB during the autumn term, from Monday to Thursday in the afternoon.

The London School of Economics Academic Stay
The Master student will receive classes in the London School of Economics for a week. Lectures will be given by prestigious professionals from the City of London as well as by members of the LSE´s faculty.

The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE ) is a centre of world renown for teaching and research in all matters related to economic, social and political sciences. There is no other university in the world which is as global in the origin of its students and teachers, or in the focus of its activity. Ever since its foundation, the aim of the LSE has been to convert itself into an authentic laboratory of economic and social sciences, a platform to develop, analyze and assess ideas to be divulged around the world. LSE has over 65,000 registered students in 195 countries.

LSE has, for many years, occupied the first places in the Times Higher Education Supplement rankings, only behind Harvard University and before institutions such as Stanford University or MIT.
Its library is the most extensive social sciences library in the world. Founded in 1896, it is also known as the British Library of Political and Economic Science. Over 95 percent of its funds are available during opening hours. Its 4 million printed volumes are stored on 50 km of shelves. There are over 1,600 study posts with 480 connected PCs and 226 sockets for laptops. Over 8,000 electronic publications are available online.

Located in the heart of London, the school is in the centre of one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world. At a stone´s throw from the European legal and financial centers, LSE is at the centre of international debate, fundamental for the identity of the School as an outwardly oriented institution with an active participation in British, European and world affaires.

LSE graduates are found in posts of responsibility in economic, business, industrial, political and social sectors and in international organizations around the world. LSE students and teachers include 13 Nobel Prize winners, 28 Heads of State and personalities in government positions around the world.
Students can also enjoy the British tradition of London clubs since during their stay in London they will be invited to a Gala dinner in the Carlton Club.

Sistema de Enseñanza

The methodology followed is highly practical, based on rigorous and up-to-date contents to provide professional know-how. Each study module is accompanied by a practical case to be carried out by the students which relates to the covered material.

In addition, the complexity of Financial Economics – mainly due to the abstraction and intangibility of the products handled – means that certain Master subjects need to contain a technical component which will be assessed through appropriate exams, case studies and research papers.

So, theoretical classes alternate with practical ones and with the use of the appropriate IT tools, given that the IEB has an IT room and treasury desk similar to those of any brokerage firm.

The professional market profile of a wide number of teachers and the reduced size of student groups will enable the systematic analysis and study of real experiences and teacher directed presentations by the students in class.

Moreover, the creation of team spirit and group cooperation will be fostered.
Finally, all the students shall complete a Final Project which will require all acquired knowledge to be put into practice.

As concerns the target public that can gain admission to this Master; the places are firstly offered to graduates, either Bachelors or Engineers in any of their specializations.
Those wishing to study this Master should logically both speak and write fluent English.
All candidates will attend several interviews with the members of the Admission Committee before joining the Master. An optional leveler course will take place before the beginning of the program for those students that the Master’s directorate consider should deepen their knowledge of the “basic tools” (computing, math, accounting etc.) that will be used in the Master.

The qualification granted at the end of the studies is Master in International Finance, issued by the Academic Board of the IEB as an own degree sponsored by the Bolsa de Madrid (Madrid Stock Exchange).

The IEB, as academic collaborator of CFA Spain, includes within this Master the preparation for the CFA Level 1.

Faculty Staff
The academic staff of the Master program is composed of professionals from the financial sector and markets (directors of securities and brokerage firms, financial institutions, financial analysts, treasury desk managers, portfolio managers, etc).

All of the professors possess high level university training and many of them hold a postgraduate degree (Masters, Doctorates, CFAs, FRM, CAIA, EFA, etc.) issued by prestigious universities throughout the world. Furthermore, their teaching capacity and efficiency in transmitting knowledge have been largely demonstrated.

Facilities and Services
Tecnology and IT
The IEB has an IT room with 41 posts for individual use by students. There are also several posts with broadband Wifi internet access in all the common areas. All the lecture and study rooms have Wifi connection, infrastructure to connect computers and latest generation technology such as video projectors, financial information systems etc.
Furthermore, all students will receive a laptop computer in order to be able to comfortably follow the Master program.

At the beginning of the Master each student will be presented with a laptop computer
for their personal use.

Library. Access to Data Bases
The IEB has a Study Room in which the students can consult all the necessary texts and manuals to widen and consolidate covered topics.
The library funds in this room –used exclusively by the students– are considered to be one of the most complete collections in Spain in the areas of Derivatives, Technical and Quantitative Analysis, Portfolio Management, Risk Management, Fixed and Securities Markets, Corporate Finance, Emerging markets and Internet, although it also has specific sections for subjects of general interest such as Law, Economics and Finance. (biographies, statistics, manuals, etc.).
In addition, thanks to the Bolsa de Madrid’s sponsorship, the center’s students have the possibility of gaining access to the more than 11,000 financial, economic and legal volumes of the library at the Palacio de la Bolsa de Madrid.

Treasury Desk
The practical market training room of the IEB is a “treasury or trading desk” similar to those used in Banks and Brokerage firms. It has forty one posts from which the students can access information sources provided by Bloomberg, Bridge, Visual Trader and Infobolsa.
These are economic and financial data and news information services which supply all the necessary information to follow equity, fixed income, derivative, currency and money markets. This information is complemented with other kinds of news coming from the main news agencies. These services, moreover, simulate different market situations: buyers, sellers, intermediaries, etc.
Students, thanks to these technical resources and guided through sessions by professionals from different financial markets, obtain knowhow of these markets.

On-line Simulator
One of the most attractive points of the program is the students’ use of the Portfolio Management Simulator which enables them to manage and control the risk of their positions using real market data.
This simulation provides experience similar to that obtained by those who usually operate in international financial markets.
In order to give maximum benefit to students, the simulation is carried out by internet through the specially designed On-line simulator, under the tutorship of professional managers who assess, through their own simulator, the make-up of the portfolios by the student teams.

Career Counseling Department
The IEB has a career development service which can be used by all the students. The service actively seeks professional openings, especially in those companies with which IEB has signed agreements or which are collaborators or sponsors of our Center. The IEB has a powerful online tool which allows access through the Study Center intranet to all the job offers regularly input into the system and which enables people to express their interest in any selection process. In addition, the system permits the sending of personalized e-mails to any candidates whose profile is especially appropriate for a specific job offer.

Requisitos de acceso al curso:

All candidates to follow the Master in International Finance should present the duly filled in following form attaching a copy of their academic qualifications, a copy of their identity card or passport, 4 passport size photos and a brief CV.

All candidates will be requested to carry out written access tests to confirm their level of knowledge as well as personal interviews with members of the Admission Committee

Duration, Calendar and Schedule
This program lasts 9 months from February to November, with a total of 800 lecture hours.
Classes are from Monday to Thursday, 9 a.m to 2 p.m. with the exception of those classes that take place during the academic stay at Wharton School and the London School of Economics.

A minimum attendance of 80% of the theoretical and practical classes is required unless justified and approved absence has been granted by the Master´s directorate.
Not complying with this attendance requirement means the qualification cannot be granted although the student might obtain an attendance certificate.

Temario cubierto por el curso:

The greatest part of the program is taught in the IEB´s headquarters in Madrid, a city considered, in specialist environments, to be one of the most important financial centers in the world (after New York, London, Paris, Frankfurt and Tokyo). In addition, the Spanish capital, as well as possessing its own enormous intrinsic strength and vitality, has the advantage of being Europe´s door to the Iberoamerican world, many of whose emerging economies will play an important role in International Markets.

Students in the Master in International Finance follow some of their study plan in two of the most prestigious business schools in the world of finance: the London School of Economics in Great Britain and Wharton School in Pennsylvania (USA).

The students´ stay and study periods in these two world references in economic training and research not only provide quality teaching and content but also permit an insight into cities ? London, New York and Pennsylvania ? in those two countries which are the indisputable references of international financial leadership.

All the teaching is in English, as is communication between the teachers and pupils and any documentation, given that it is the usual language in the financial world.
