About the programme
We think of money as one of biggest inventions of mankind. With widespread use of money finance was born. Nowadays all the economies are financial. Their financial systems have grown in their size and complexity. We see a wide array of financial institutions trading in complex financial assets on interdependent financial markets with a single aim of bringing together savers and investors in their desire of making the best use of their wealth. Development of financial systems has thus become a close companion of general economic development. At the top of these financial systems are modern central banks with a difficult task of using money as a steering wheel between the dangers of inflation and recessions. Good understanding of the mechanics of financial systems is of essence. The aim of the MSc in Money and Finance at FELU is to provide such understanding to students whose ambitions are to as skilled as their peers on international job market. Special care is devoted to give the student a solid background knowledge of economics and quantitative tools. The growing complexity of financial markets in a globalised world is making such a knowledge a necessity for good analytical skills. Equipped with it our students will be given the opportunity to master its use in a selection of applied courses that will be offered each year.
In addition to topical subjects related to monetary policy, investments, as well as public and international finance, the programme gives students knowledge about analytical tools and theoretical models. All of the above provides a solid basis for decision-making as is expected from the financial economist profile gained through this study.
Programme Money and Finance can be also part of Double degree programme. For students who want to spend part of their Master's studies at a foreign university there is a possibility to participate in a Double-Degree 2-year Master's Programme jointly organised by:

The Double-Degree Programme includes spending one year in the MSc Programme of the partner university and leads to obtaining a double Master's Degree, both from the home university (UL) and partner foreign university. Given high quality of Master's Programmes of partner universities this is an excellent entry point for ambitious students to international job market or an academic career.
