Master of Science in Banking and Finance
> Teaching language: English
The Master of Science in Banking and Finance is the flagship programme of the Luxembourg School of Finance. It offers a comprehensive curriculum encompassing both classic and more recent areas of the finance discipline as well as the principal functions of banking.
The cross-functional curriculum provides a dynamic framework of analytical skills and intellectual tools, providing an integrated approach to solving complex banking and financial problems. In addition to a broad range of core courses, students may select one of three streams representing mainstream areas in which they can obtain a deeper knowledge.
Students study with the School’s permanent faculty. The diverse faculty, which maintain close ties to the Luxembourg banking and financial community, engage in leading research and advance banking and financial knowledge and practices on many fronts including market valuation of financial instruments, risk management and behavioural finance. In addition, some invited professors from renowned finance faculties of other universities teach selected courses.
The programme is ideally suited to students seeking a career in corporate finance, asset and wealth management, banking and related fields. While the majority of incoming students have a prior academic background in economics or business studies, many come from fields such as applied sciences or law.
- The full-time format begins in September and finishes in June of every year, followed by an obligatory internship. Classes are generally in full-day block format and are held on one or more weekdays (Monday to Friday) during every week of the academic semester. Note that the days vary each week in terms of the day(s) of the week and number of days.
- The part-time format involves following classes with the students of the full-time format, but for only half the courses each year. Classes are generally in full-day block format and are held on one or more weekdays (Monday to Friday) of every week of the academic semester. Note that the days vary each week in terms of the day(s) of the week and number of days. Part-time students do not generally complete an internship, but earn equivalent credits through additional courses or a Master’s Thesis.
Part-time students who are employed are encouraged to consult with their companies concerning their obligation to attend class at irregular days of the week during each academic semester. These are published in a semester calendar at the beginning of each semester.
The MSc in Banking and Finance is a post-graduate degree offered by the Luxembourg School of Finance of the Faculty of Law, Economics and Finance.

Master in Entrepreneurship and Innovation
> Teaching language: English
Entrepreneurship has become an increasingly popular activity that can be evidenced in different spheres of the economy and society. More commonly, entrepreneurial behaviours are associated with new start up ventures where risk, ownership and management are combined to exploit new market or technological opportunities. But such activities can also be seen in corporate, social, public, civic, community and small business contexts to reflect organizational efforts to sustain competitive advantage, uniqueness and novelty. This is partly because the twenty-first century is characterized by a fast moving, competitive and global economy. Sustaining a competitive advantage requires that individuals, companies and nations are able to anticipate and stimulate (rather than merely manage) change.
Entrepreneurship is about exploiting ambiguities and contingencies. More importantly, entrepreneurship is about experiencing a tension between ‘what is’ in the present and ‘what should be’ in the future – and then converting that tension into an entrepreneurial problem that can resolve the tension. Such a process demands concepts and knowledge from different disciplines, and the integration of these concepts with the know-how and practical experience of daily business practice.
The programme aims at achieving that integration, optimally balancing theory and know-how.
