The programme is offered jointly by the University of Groningen in the Netherlands and Uppsala University in Sweden. The double degree programme consists of two one-year master programmes that you can effectively study two in three semesters (i.e. 18 months/90 EC).
The IFM programme is different from most other Master programmes in international finance because it focuses on managerial aspects of international finance. The curriculum is designed to provide students with the skills they will need to function as a financial manager in an internationally operating firm or organization. It will give students a thorough understanding of the different aspects of financial management in an international business environment, and aims at teaching them to think strategically and to explore how change can be initiated and managed.
