Master of Science in Banking and Finance

Full-time format

The full-time format requires a full 12 months of full-time study (including a mandatory minimum internship period of 12 weeks).  It is not suitable for those will full or half-time jobs or other similar commitments.

The academic year begins mid-September and finishes in early June.  Internships begin in June and their length will vary, but will not be shorter than three months.  During teaching weeks, classes are normally held in full-day sessions three to five days per week.

Full-time students are required to attend the academic week-in-residence, typically held in July. It is important that internship companies are advised of this at the start of the internship.

Full-time students have typically recently completed a Bachelor’s or Master’s I programme and may have had a few years’ work experience.  However, there are also students who have several or even many years’ professional experience, who decide to take a year off for full-time study to obtain their MSc in Banking and Finance. 

The full-time class is very international, typically comprising students from all or almost all continents and a great variety of regions.  This richness of diversity and background adds greatly to the interest of the course.

For non-EU/EEA students who have completed their degree, Luxembourg law provides for a facilitated procedure for the application for a work-permit after graduation for a period of one + three years, in an area related to the degree obtained.

Important note for non-EU/EEA students:
- Luxembourg regulations require students to be residents in Luxembourg (rather than in outlying areas in neighbouring countries of the Greater Region)
