OVERVIEW
Of the Finance MBA

In a globalized environment where a profound change in the monetary and financial system is taking place, along with accelerated deregulation, the “financialization” of the economy and a greater integration of the industrial and financial activities have led to a thorough development of the financial management activities of organizations. Subsequently, new risks have appeared, too often underestimated: structural risks, takeover risks, solvency risks, strategic risks... generating greater instability within the national and international economic and financial environment, all leading up to a crisis context. It is for these reasons that the ESLSCA Paris Business School created the MBA in Finance.

 

FINANCIAL ENGINEERING AND CORPORATE FINANCE SPECIALISATION

New markets, new products, new arrangements of financial transactions require knowledge of new financial, accounting, legal and fiscal techniques which are constantly evolving, developed for purposes of optimization, without forgetting the security of systems which is to be strongly maintained, all the while ensuring renewed regulation.

 

FINANCIAL ANALYSIS SPECIALISATION

The second specialization of the MBA in Finance aims to define and control the performance of its business and to value its activity. These are the driving issues of financial analysis. Analysts need knowledge and experience, with a transversal perspective, both with regard the economic environment, accounting, law, taxation, and the proper management and financial analysis techniques.

 

AUDIT AND MANAGEMENT CONTROL SPECIALISATION

The areas of intervention of the Audit and Management Control, which serves as a genuine enterprise management tool, are greater expanded in times of instability, crisis and mutation where organizations may experience difficulties and must constantly adapt to risks and environmental changes, as well as changes in management techniques. With the need to dismantle the “Process”, to examine its nuts and bolts, to study, inform and suggest improvements, streamlining now faces us with two major challenges: the technological evolution of professions, with an intensive use of digital mediums, and an openness to all areas of the company's management process (Strategy, Finance, Accounting, Information Systems, Law, and so on).

 

WHO IS THIS COURSE INTENDED FOR?

The specialized MBA in Finance is designed for students with broad, liberal arts, scientific, economic, legal, commercial or management training backgrounds who wish to deepen their knowledge or acquire a double competence. Some of them are also active professionals who, with a few years of experience, seek a change in their career.
