Master of Science in Banking and Finance
The part-time format
The part-time format requires a 24 months of part-time study. It is therefore suitable for professionals seeking to study while continuing their career.
The programme begins in mid-September of each year. Classes in the first year are held in the months of September to December and then January to July. In the second year, classes are held in the months of September to December.
Classes take place in full- or half-day sessions Thursday, Friday and Saturday, or Friday and Saturday, every second week of months in which there are classes. Some months will have fewer classes due to exams, university and school holidays, events and other factors.
Part-time students are required to attend the academic week-in-residence typically held during the second week of September of their second year. It is therefore important that students make suitable arrangements with their employers for the necessary vacation time.
Part-time students are professionals, many from the Luxembourg financial sector, residing in Luxembourg or its greater region. In addition to their professional commitments, many students have families and other activities.
The part-time class is very international and comprises students with a broad range of professional backgrounds, even within finance. This reflects the diversity of both the Luxembourg financial centre and its broader economic base, and adds to the interest of the programme.
Class sizes do not exceed 35 students.
For non-EU/EEA students, enrolment in the part-time programme will not be accepted by the Luxembourg authorities as a basis for applying for a student visa.
