Master’s Degree in Finance
The Barcelona GSE Finance Program builds on the School’s outstanding faculty in finance, economics, econometrics and data science. The program is aimed at students that seek an interdisciplinary approach that combines finance and economics. The program is designed to give students the strong modelling techniques, econometric tools, and advanced coding skills needed for the top jobs in banking, consulting and fintech.
