The University of Luxembourg is currently offering several Masters programmes taught in English, in the following disciplines:

Master in Accounting and Audit

 

> Teaching language: English

 

The academic Master programme in Accounting and Audit has been developed in partnership with leading academics and practitioners. The programme offers scientifically based in-depth knowledge of all specialist areas that are relevant to the field of accounting and auditing, without neglecting the practical relevance of the teaching content or the preparation of candidates for the job market. Students completing the degree course acquire the expertise to solve practical problems on a scientifically sound basis.

 

To become a statutory auditor in the European Union and a réviseur d’entreprises in Luxembourg candidates attain university entrance and achieve theoretical knowledge of subjects relevant to statutory audit and the ability to apply such knowledge in practice. Candidates aiming to obtain the professional qualification of réviseur d’entreprises will comprehensively have completed the theoretical stage of their training on a high academic level when they graduate.

 

Master in Wealth Management

 

The Master in Wealth Management (MWM) is designed to educate and train future wealth managers. The two-year programme combines traditional finance subjects with person-, legal- and tax-centric subjects such as client relationship management, estate planning, ethics and international taxation.

 

The Master in Wealth Management was developed together with the Luxembourg financial centre, in particular the Luxembourg Bankers’ Association Private Banking Group Luxembourg (PBGL), and meets the highest international standards. It prepares students for the job market in different wealth management contexts with an emphasis on the Luxembourg financial centre.

 

During their second year, students undertake an internship, concluded by a business case project report, or a Master thesis, giving them the opportunity to take their first steps in the professional world.

  • Financial Economics

Students who have successfully completed the M1 may also choose to apply for the MSc in Quantitative Economics, which prepares candidates for careers in research or further study at doctoral level.

 

The MSc in Finance and Economics was developed together with the Luxembourg financial centre. It prepares students for the job market in different finance disciplines in Luxembourg, Europe and overseas.

 

During their second year, students in all tracks will complete a Master thesis or an internship and placement report, giving them the opportunity to take their first steps in the professional world.

The Master of Science in Quantitative Economics and Finance is a one-year programme that exposes highly talented students to fundamental research methods in the fields of economics and finance. The programme prepares for careers in academia, public institutions, and upscale jobs in the industry. For its best graduates it is a premier route for admission to the University of Luxembourg’s Doctoral School in Economics and Finance.

The MSc in Quantitative Economics and Finance meets the highest international standards and compares to the first year of doctoral programmes at top universities in the US or the UK.

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.

Application Deadlines & Procedures
