Master International Finance & Economics - Máster en Economía y Finanzas Internacionales
An understanding of the economics and finance environment in which business operates is essential for strategic decisions in any organisation.
This business environment is increasingly global and, hence, increasingly beyond the capacity of organisations to simply pick it up as they go along. Even if not trained as a finance expert or as a specialist economist a form grounding in these areas is increasingly a key advantage for middle and senior management.
There is much evidence that employers are, more than ever, keenly aware of the importance of a good understanding of economics and finance, particularly when this is combined with the ability to apply these skills in practical situations.
A good Bachelors Honours degree, 2:2 or above or equivalent.
