Our pledge This makes the Master in Finance special

The financial industry is one of the most important sectors of the economy.

It is also an industry with a particular need for values and a responsibility towards people.

At EBS University, we offer you state-of-the-art teaching content, individual personal development and practical work with the big names from the finance industry.

So you are perfectly prepared for an exciting future.


Welcome to the EBS family.
The most important part of your studies is not only 'what', but especially 'with whom'. The EBS family is an exceptional community. International, inspiring, innovative. You are not studying with strangers but with friends, with like-minded people. We want to achieve remarkable things together. Our students organise congresses, cultural events or run their own real investment fund. Learn more about life on campus in our video.

 

Knowledge has no value without values.
We know just how important it is, especially in business management, to work with diverse stakeholders, i.e. other people, so that empathy and values make the decisive difference. They shape future leaders who drive things forward and engage others. We teach our values courage, responsibility, consideration and a strong backbone in our classes and our Coaching & Leadership Hub.

 

Challenge-based learning with state-of-the-art content:
Studying at EBS must keep up with the pace of the international financial markets. Blockchain, AI, Roboadvisory or FinTech are part of everyday life at EBS.

  • Already back in 2017, we implemented FinTech modules in the curriculum for the Master in Finance. EBS was one of the first universities in Europe to introduce Blockchain, Cryptography, Machine Learning (AI) as standard teaching content. Students design innovative machine learning models and develop their own blockchain projects.
  • A separate student-run finance initiative offers the opportunity to gain initial practical experience outside of the curriculum. Our students founded an investment fund which is unique at German universities. The fund is licensed and recognised by BaFin.
  • Practice partners participate in all study courses.

I learned all the important professional basics at EBS. Also, how to deal with stress and a high level of pressure and demands. Working in departments and organizing congresses is perfect to learn how to organize and implement something in a short time.

Study programme structure Master in Finance

The course comprises four semesters as standard and concludes with your Master Thesis - often in cooperation with companies. You can organise the third semester according to your needs: either a stay abroad (learn more in this video) at one of our approximately 200 partner universities or an internship semester. In the fourth semester, you gain practical experience and focus on your final thesis.

Study Content This is what you learn in the Master in Finance

The Master in Finance programme is divided into different stages. At the beginning of the programme, we prepare you for your future research work and support you in your further development of your leadership skills. Building on this, you will deal with the essential issues of your field, consolidate newly acquired knowledge and grow as a leader.


Every person is different. Numerous ways to do a Master's degree at EBS

We have designed the Master in Finance to be flexible, depending on your level of knowledge, skills and goals. Take the study path that best suits you and your circumstances:

 

Semester Abroad Track
The Semester Abroad Track comprises two semesters at EBS University, one semester at one of our partner universities abroad and concludes with the thesis.

 

Practice Track
You have already gained sufficient experience abroad and would now like to focus on practical experience? Then the Practice Track is perfect. This includes two semesters of study at EBS University, an intensive, long internship in the third semester and a final thesis.

 

German Track
An option developed explicitly for non-German-speaking students. In addition to the lectures, you will receive compulsory German lessons (Business and General) and will not go abroad in the third semester, but stay at EBS in Germany. This enables you to improve your prospects for a career in Germany. In the fourth semester, you complete your studies with your thesis.

 

Accelerated Track

(prerequisite: Bachelor degree with 240 ECTs)
Fast-track your career. If you meet the relevant requirements and have already gained experience abroad, you can shorten the master programme to 2 semesters.

 

Dual Degree
You can obtain another international degree (MBA or Master) in addition to your EBS degree. Extend your study abroad at one of our partner universities by one semester and receive a double degree. In this way, you gain more expertise in a broader international context. And you increase your global market value.



Challenged Based Learning

Experience top-class expert lectures and a strong practical orientation. In addition to interactive lectures, there is an emphasis on case studies and real-world projects, so the degree program reflects cutting-edge management practices. In addition, close collaboration with industry leaders and practitioners is encouraged to equip students with the skills, competencies and mindsets required in today's global economy.



Many possibilities. One language.
At EBS University you will study at an international level and in an international environment. That's why all lectures and events are, of course, held in English.


It could hardly be more international.

International professors and lecturers, study groups with high diversity or an integrated stay abroad are without question the best preparation for a career in international top management.



Get to know the lecturers: EBS University is one of the leading business universities in Germany, but we are not satisfied with that: our professors aim to make the Faculty of Business Administration, as a management-focused business school, a leader in Europe. In the Master's program, professors with many years of practical experience as well as internationally renowned researchers teach. They all work together to shape leaders for the future.

 

Our faculty is supported by members of the adjunct faculty. You will be taught by experts who hold top positions in business or are active in leading companies.


Characteristics and skills Your profile

The financial services industry is the heart of a modern economy and an extremely dynamic and exciting industry. The Master in Finance is the best preparation for your successful management career in the finance sector.


The financial world is looking for well-trained individuals with sound specialist knowledge and international experience. Strong analytical skills, willingness to take risks and presentation skills are just as important as courage, responsibility, backbone and empathy - in short, the ability to inspire and lead people.
