I particularly appreciated that the programme focused on auditing, management control and accounting and this was exactly what I expected from this MSc. The courses were taught both by academics and professionals; which gave a good balance between theory and practice. Plus, the MSc in Audit & Management Control validates 5 out of the 7 DSCG credits; which is a big advantage when applying for a position in auditing or in management control. David Ouanounou (France)–EDHEC 2012 Junior Auditor, Mazars–France



MSc in Audit & Management Control The programme provides students with knowledge of operational and strategic accounting and control and responds to today’s need for financial controllers. Accounting and management control are undergoing change as swiftly and as profoundly as finance, and the programme responds to today’s needs for financial controllers capable of managing reporting procedures and implementing innovative financial and management accounting solutions. PwC is the Corporate Programme Sponsor of the programme.

MSc in Corporate Finance The programme is designed to focus on all areas of corporate finance. The major in financial management focuses particularly on corporate taxation and process management, whereas the major in financial intermediation covers private equity, project finance or equity capital markets. The two majors are complemented by elective courses that enable students to further specialise or, on the contrary, to broaden their knowledge. Société Générale is the Corporate Programme Sponsor of the programme.

MSc in Financial Markets The programme introduces students to the main concepts of finance related to stocks, bonds, derivatives and alternative investments, as well as to the analytical tools used in the industry. Broadly speaking, the major in asset management focuses on the advanced techniques of portfolio construction and performance analysis, and dynamic asset allocation, while the major in trading focuses on trading financial securities.

MSc in Risk & Investment Management (part-time) This part-time programme, taught in London or Singapore, is designed for graduates and professionals in the investment industry wishing to make progress and to maintain leadership. It also appeals to those contemplating lateral moves.



In partnership with

The curriculum has been designed in partnership with our Corporate Programme Sponsor, PwC, which is involved in sharing its expertise and know-how with students. The programme responds to today’s needs for financial controllers capable of managing reporting procedures and implementing innovative financial and management accounting solutions. It also develops additional skills such as communication, strategy, project management and human capital management.

International Accounting In 2005, International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) were adopted for the first time in many countries around the world. The IASB and the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) in the US have been committed to working towards converging the two frameworks. Despite convergence initiatives, there are still many differences between these two standards. In this context, it is very important to understand the main characteristics and differences of the international accounting principles (US GAAP and IAS/IFRS) with a specific focus on the IFRS framework.

Information Systems & Management Control The course examines the basic framework for integrated management information systems (ERP). The emphasis is on information systems for operations support, including the impact of information and communication technology on management control systems.

This partnership enabled us to build a long-term relationship both with the students and the teaching faculty. We greatly appreciate the opportunity that we were given to advise the students on their career choices. HervĂŠ Demoy & Olivier Marion Associate Partners, PwC



Management Control Systems The primary objectives of our sessions will be on the process and structure of efficient management control and systems designed to achieve results control. This type of management control is largely dominant in the vast majority of organisations - it has a decidedly behavioural focus and requires performance measures, evaluations, as well as the provision of incentives.

Measuring & Managing Information Systems Performance The course focuses on the importance and characteristics of information for organisations and the use of cost/benefit analysis to assess its value. The course will also address how to align information systems with business strategy.

Operations Management The course focuses on the relationships between operations and cost control management in an industry perspective. It also address how to improve global performance in inventory management through the supply chain and manufacturing, with the implementation of total quality management tools.

Organisational Controls The course provides a clarification on control in organisation. As a transversal function, control is closely related to other functions: strategy, structure, human resources, information systems. The link between control and strategy on the one hand and between control and performance on the other hand will be specifically discussed.

Principles of Business Taxation In an open and competitive world operations are international and taxation is a permanent issue to deal with. It is fully part of the economic performance of companies with international activities and groups composed of domestic and foreign entities.

Project Management The course proposes a process-based approach to project management, providing an easily tailored and scalable method for the management of all types of projects. The method is the de facto standard for project management and is practised worldwide. It is a structured approach to project management and provides a method for managing projects within a clearly defined framework. Divided into manageable stages, the method enables efficient control of resources.

Strategic Planning & Control The course is about cost and management accounting. Cost accounting is concerned with information on the acquisition and consumption of resources, whereas the central focus of management accounting is on the management of organisational performance. Then, with the measurement and reporting of financial information, cost accounting provides useful input for management accounting.

I chose the EDHEC Master in Management because I wanted to graduate with a double-degree and be attractive to international companies. Thanks to the programme I have learnt about all key aspects of business management. After completing my entire gap year in the US, I choose to MSc in Audit & Management Control to strengthen my skills in auditing and accounting. Virginie Pled (France)–EDHEC 2012 Audit Associate, KPMG LLP–USA

The MSc in Corporate Finance introduces students to the main concepts used in corporate finance and covers topics related to corporate law and corporate strategy, financial analysis, company valuation or international finance. The major in financial management focuses on corporate taxation and process management, whereas the major in financial intermediation covers private equity, project finance or equity capital markets. The two majors are complemented by elective courses that enable students to further specialise or, on the contrary, to broaden their knowledge. The degree opens up the exciting possibility of working in investment banking, private equity or corporate financial services. New challenges and opportunities constantly arise and we focus on offering our students the knowledge required to become tomorrow’s leaders. As such, Société Générale has decided to team up with EDHEC by sponsoring the MSc in Corporate Finance.

It presents the main techniques used by companies for influencing their earnings. Financial Accounting & Analysis goes on to presenting key financial ratios, such as profitability ratios, activity ratios, asset management ratios, and liquidity and debt ratios, using illustrative examples and cases.

International Finance & Risk Management International corporations need to identify and manage various risks, where market risk, credit risk and currency risk are prominent. An international corporate financial manager needs to properly use the various financial instruments available to set adequate and accurate hedging strategies. Instruments involve fixed-income and currency securities and derivatives at various maturities. Other risks involve counterparty risk, liquidity risk and operational risk.



Valuation & Real Options The course aims to develop an understanding of the use of financial statements in valuing securities in international markets. It puts significant emphasis on the analysis of financial information for assessing the fundamental value of traded securities in global markets and for making decisions to invest in business.

After providing an overview of financial statements under IFRS and US GAAP (covering revenue recognition, accounting for financial instruments, lease accounting, derivatives, hedges and foreign currency financial statements), the course deals with the tax laws governing the dealings of corporate taxpayers and their shareholders. It reviews transactions and issues in the life of a corporation, from formation to liquidation, as well as the basics of the taxation of corporate mergers and acquisitions.

Students will learn how private equity funds are raised, structured and financed; how contracting is done in private equity markets; how to value private equity interests; the sources of capital for private companies; the strategies to follow for value creation.

Project Finance The course involves the raising of funds to finance a specific capital investment project in which the providers of the funds are primarily concerned by the cash flows generated by the project. The goal is to assess whether these cash flows will be sufficient to service the loans and provide an adequate return on the equity invested in the project. This course offers students an opportunity to understand the risk-return characteristics of unique projects from a multi-dimensional perspective.

This partnership gives us the opportunity to be close to the students prepared for and motivated by financial and investment banking professions, and the faculty, in order to create an academic programme that is constantly updated with the latest trends on the market. The students are given the tools to perform in the modern financial sector, and we can spot tomorrow’s talent and eventually integrate them into our teams. The high proportion of international students in the MSc in Corporate Finance is a really important advantage for a company like ours, which operates in 77 countries.

After living in three different countries and working in finance for two years, I was looking for an MSc that would enable me to enhance a career in Europe while increasing my international exposure. EDHEC came at the right time in my career, as it represented the opportunity to gain additional expertise in my field of predilection and a label of recognition. Daniel Guardiola (Colombia)–EDHEC 2012 Equity Analyst, Comgest–France


MSc IN FINANCIAL MARKETS The MSc in Financial Markets introduces students to the main concepts of finance related to stocks, bonds, derivatives and alternative investments. It also enables them to further diversify their competencies by opting for one of the two specialisations: asset management or trading. Quantitative asset pricing and derivatives pricing models from cutting-edge research in finance are reviewed, as well as the techniques to take these models to real time data, including time series analysis, Monte-Carlo simulation and advanced econometric techniques. Broadly speaking, the major in asset management focuses on the advanced techniques of portfolio construction and performance analysis, as well as dynamic asset allocation, while the major in trading focuses on trading financial securities. Programme graduates work as fund managers, security analysts, risk managers, asset allocation specialists, hedge fund analysts or traders in asset management and brokerage companies, investment banks, hedge funds, private banks and pension funds.

Core modules Derivatives Pricing & Hedging This is an intermediate course on options and other financial derivative securities, and their applications to risk management. It provides the students with the basic concepts of derivatives trading and pricing. The course starts with discrete-time models for option pricing, and then discusses the continuous-time, Brownian Motion driven models. The benchmark model will be the Black-Scholes-Merton pricing model, but other more general models such as stochastic volatility models will be also covered.

Empirical Methods in Finance The course offers an overview of the most widely used econometrics tools and the way these methodologies can be used in empirical finance, in both investment banking and asset management. There is a strong emphasis on practical applications, with close links to the topics covered in the MATLAB class.

Financial Theory The course introduces students to the main building blocks of modern finance theory. The course starts with the basis for rational decision making under uncertainty. The second part of the course introduces the capital asset pricing model (CAPM), discusses the arbitrage pricing theory (APT) and reviews empirical evidence related to these seminal theories. Tests of empirical implications of asset pricing models and of the efficient market hypothesis (EMH) are also reviewed.

Fixed Income Securities & Risk Management The course gives students the necessary skills to understand the pricing and management of fixed-income securities. Topics include: interest rates and risk management in bond markets; corporate bonds; inflationlinked bonds; interest rate swaps; and securitised assets such as MBSs.

Upon completion of a Bachelor’s degree of Mathematical & Computational Science at Stanford University in the US, I was interested in further exploring applications in the area of finance. I chose the MSc in Financial Markets at EDHEC as it provides an attractive combination of theory and practice in close cooperation with EDHEC-Risk Institute, a partnership that facilitates keeping up to date with current research in finance, which is critically important in this fast-changing sector. The programme also balances technical coverage with a more qualitative understanding of the markets and industry exposure, allowing us to establish a good foundation for finance-related work. Yuxin Chuah (Singapore)–EDHEC 2012 Associate, Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS)–Singapore



Major in Asset Management Alternative Investments The course aims to give participants a good understanding and workable knowledge of the techniques that should be part of the toolkit of anyone investing in, analysing and/or advising private and institutional clients (and more specifically hedge funds and commodity trading advisors) on the inclusion of alternative investments in their portfolios. It also enables students to assimilate the analytical arguments used in technical publications–related to in-house research notes of financial institutions and practitioner-oriented journals–in order to be able to apply them.

Asset Management Drawing on the expertise developed by EDHEC-Risk Institute, the course equips students with both the technical and conceptual tools that will allow them to take an active role in this fast-evolving environment. In particular, it provides a detailed introduction to the modern approach to portfolio management. More specifically, the course focuses on the technical challenges involved in portfolio optimisation, with specific emphasis on the need for enhanced estimates of risk and expected returns.

New Frontiers in Risk & Asset-Liability Management The course intends to provide students with an in-depth appreciation of the concepts and techniques that will shape the future of investment management. It will also equip them with practical tools to improve asset allocation and risk management processes, implement novel investment management approaches, and develop new products and more importantly new solutions.

Regulation & Risk Management The course covers Basel II & III and Solvency II frameworks and the 3 Pillars and explains measurement methods for quantifying risks and the different approaches to allocating capital. It also discusses the impact of the regulatory frameworks on capital markets and insurance markets and highlights the links between the reforms, their critics and potential developments. It discusses due diligence in the hedge fund industry, with a focus on operational, liquidity and counterparty risks. It explains sources of risk and key due diligence points for operational risk, liquidity risk and counterparty risk in hedge funds and highlights enhanced best business practice recommendations.



Major in Trading Fundamentals of Trading The course covers the main issues relating to securities trading and securities markets. It discusses why and how people trade, as well as the operation, structure, and regulation of securities markets. While the course focuses mainly on equity markets, comparisons to the markets for derivatives and other securities will be made. It discusses what causes markets to change, how change is affected by competition between markets, and how securities regulation hampers or promotes the development of markets. It also further emphasises how the different market structures affect trading strategies, trading costs, and others that are important to traders.

Applied Financial Markets The course aims to wrap up product and trading skills acquired in previous core courses, while completing the range of financial market products (money markets, credit & securitisation, mezzanine). It also gives students a global understanding of the financial markets industry, the players and their roles and enables them to acquire the techniques and skills necessary for operating at practitioner level in several areas within the financial markets, including research, origination, trading, buy- or sell-side, and thus enhance investment, financing or strategic performance. The second part of the course thoroughly explores money markets and foreign exchange markets instruments to be able to use them for hedging or arbitraging interest-rate exposure.

Market Risk Analysis The course analyses all aspects of market risk analysis from a practitioner’s point of view. Students will gain insight into the fundamentals of market risk management, while at the same time learning more about the challenges and successes organisations have had in implementing their programmes. Cutting-edge techniques in market risk analysis are provided. Topics include: market risk identification; risk measures (parametric and nonparametric methods); Value at Risk; model risk; liquidity risk; forecasting volatility and correlation; decomposition and verification of risk measures; estimating risk measures; and practical MATLAB programming techniques.

Trading in Practice The course’s objective is to give students an understanding of the use of financial instruments by placing them in real trading situations in commodities, derivatives or other financial securities. Sessions are conducted by professional traders in our trading room.



Seminars Advanced Excel & VBA The course is designed to give students knowledge of how to use Excel and Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) to financial modelling problems. Real-life examples will be extensively used in the learning process. This course is designed to be essentially practical.

Ethics & Corporate Governance The seminar provides a basic insight into the meaning and importance of values and norms in the functioning of financial markets. Students will learn to analyse cases in financial ethics in an autonomous manner and to identify the attitude of a responsible actor in financial markets.

MATLAB This is an introductory course to MATLAB, a powerful tool for data analysis and visualisation, and modelling. We first describe the working environment in MATLAB and we present the basic elements of syntax. We then describe how to import data, how to handle them using pre-programmed functions of MATLAB, and how to export the results to use them in a presentation or in a report. We will also study the Financial, Statistics and Econometrics Toolboxes in more detail, which extend MATLAB capabilities in finance, statistics and model calibration.

Research Methodologies The course aims to show students how to write an academic paper. The whole entire process, from identifying a topic, reviewing the literature, structuring a thesis, collecting the data and programming a statistical procedure to writing in a clear and concise style, will be covered.

I was looking for a course in quantitative finance and asset management and the programme offered by EDHEC Business School was perfectly aligned to what I wanted to do, making EDHEC my first choice destination. Bhasul Vazhoor (India)–EDHEC 2008 Assistant Vice President, Commerzbank–Germany



London or Singapore Part-time programme

This 13-month part-time programme, taught in London or Singapore, trains participants to appreciate recent and forthcoming paradigm shifts in investment management. Equipping them with the conceptual and practical tools required to optimise risk and investment management, this programme also helps them to design novel investment solutions for institutional, private and retail investors that span traditional, alternative, and structured forms of investments. The class is an interesting mix of young graduates and professionals, representing. Graduates can find positions in any asset class, including FX, commodities, credit, interest rates and equity among others.

Core modules Alternative Investments The course looks at alternative investments from an asset allocation perspective. It begins with a presentation of assets from private equity and real estate, to hedge funds, commodities and managed futures, and alternatives (infrastructure assets, timber, etc). The emphasis is on investment characteristics, risk and return drivers and statistical properties of alternative classes and investments. The course then looks at the benefits and challenges of integrating alternative assets in asset allocation and discusses alternative integration models.

Advanced Financial Analysis The course imparts a thorough understanding of how financial statements are established and trains participants in financial analysis. After examining specific accounting issues, the course explores conceptual and technical problems in measuring value creation, investments in either working capital or capital expenditure, margin analysis, a company’s financing, leverage effect and profitability. It deals with the role of financial statement analysis in historical performance evaluation, financial forecasting, equity analysis and valuation of companies. It provides a comparative approach to equity analysts’ techniques and methodologies, and specifically trains participants in fundamental analysis methods.



Empirical Finance The course focuses on the empirical aspects of asset pricing and portfolio management and on the econometrics of financial markets. Applications span primitive and derivative asset pricing, strategic and tactical asset allocation, and trading strategies. Topics covered include asset return modelling and predictability, volatility modelling and forecasting, treatment of non-linearity in data, simulation methods, calibration and testing of pricing models and trading strategies, correlation and co-integration analysis, econometrics of derivatives pricing, and econometrics of fixed-income markets.

Excel, VBA & Matlab The course introduces powerful software tools commonly used by professionals in the financial industry to develop simple or sophisticated models. The first half of the course begins with a review of MS Excel functionalities that are most relevant for building transparent intermediate and advanced models and continues with VBA, which enables user-defined functions and process automation. The second half of the course is dedicated to the professional modelling environment MATLAB and focuses on the language syntax, plotting functionalities, and toolboxes critical for building financial models such as the statistical, the financial, the financial derivative, and the optimisation toolboxes. Finally, the course concludes with an introduction to Octave, which is regarded as an open-source alternative to MATLAB.

Financial Regulations & Ethics The course provides an introduction to the basics of financial regulation and to ethics. The first part of the course includes a review of the Basel Capital Accords and of the European regulation of the investment fund industry, and discusses how professional principles and values interact with the regulation. The second part of the course focuses on five key areas in terms of sound business practices for the investment fund industry, and illustrates through case studies the types of outcomes that may result from the lack of ethics or sound business practices.

Foundations of Asset Pricing & Risk Management The course introduces the economic and mathematical foundations of asset pricing and portfolio management. The course is divided into three parts. In the first part, it studies the valuation of derivative contracts, including options on stocks, currencies, indices, bonds, and interest rates. The second part of the course examines optimal consumption and portfolio decisions under uncertainty, including single-period mean-variance models and multiperiod models. The third part of the course focuses on partial and general equilibrium models for the pricing of primitive securities, such as stocks and bonds. This is a technically challenging course that includes the study of the mathematical methods required for analysing asset pricing and portfolio selection models in continuous time.

I chose EDHEC because I wanted to undertake a career in finance and especially in capital markets. EDHEC is well-known in the financial world and I was convinced that following EDHEC’s programme would be really positive for my future career and it was the right decision. I chose the MSc in Risk & Investment Management part-time programme because after my gap year, I wanted to add another year of work experience and the programme itself was very catchy on top of being interested in the subject.

Performance Measurement, Analysis & Reporting The course introduces participants to the metrics, models, and rules used to measure the performance of investment management, to attribute it to investment process decisions and managers, and to report it according to global standards. The course presents standard metrics for performance measurement and advanced models for risk-adjusted performance analysis of asset management and asset-liability management. It addresses issues such as data biases, style biases and dynamic trading to provide for reliable performance measurement and analysis in a multi-style, multi-class, dynamic framework. It deals with the specific characteristics of performance analysis for equity, fixed income, derivatives and alternative investments.

Portfolio Construction & Risk Management The course is devoted to bridging the gap between portfolio theory and practical portfolio construction. It presents methods to implement alternative portfolio models that account for non-normality risks, estimation error and parameter uncertainty, prior knowledge, realistic risk preferences, and transaction costs. It discusses scenario optimization and its applications.

Risk Measurement & Management The course presents the tools used to identify, measure, and manage market risk. The course begins with a general introduction to the concept of risk and different aspects of risk. Its coverage of market risk includes modelling of time-varying volatility and volatility clustering, an introduction to dependence modelling, the Valueat-Risk framework and extensions, approaches to modelling extreme values, and alternative risk measures. The course concludes with the notions of back-testing, which is instrumental in building reliable risk models, stress-testing, and model risk. The examples throughout the course are prepared on MATLAB and MS Excel and are also used to illustrate practical challenges of risk modelling.

Strategic & Tactical Asset Allocation The course explores the models, techniques and applications of tactical asset allocation, as well as strategic asset allocation for mass-affluent, high net-worth and institutional investors. It also introduces the ALM framework.

Research Methodologies & TI&CD Programme The seminar aims to equip participants with the basic research skills required to author a research paper. The Talent Identification & Career Development Programme, inspired by corporate best practice, offers participants valuable insight into their potential and developmental areas as well as solid grounding for successful careers. 27
