The following general and specific competences will be developed:
Simulations under real conditions
In many of the subjects (fixed income, equities and derivatives, etc) simulations will be made of real situations, presented by active professionals, which include not only the simulation of the actual management of funds but also the accountability to third parties.
Methodologies tested by their insertion in the financial world
A Master’s that focuses on a particular profession must pay special attention to the practical dimension of every subject taught. Much of the material included in the programme will be taught by working professionals and in recent years the companies where they work frequently contract students who have passed through our classrooms.
The methodologies which are employed on the programme have all been extensively tested and are those that companies themselves consider the best suited for the training of students, many of whom will eventually be hired by them.
Deusto Business School has the Bloomberg Room available to all the participants on the Master’s in Finance. The Master's subjects that are taught in this room allow students to gain further work experience in a real work environment right from the classroom.
The Bloomberg Room has terminals where students can find and analyse financial market information virtually in real time. This will allow them to have global economic information to perform a top-down analysis by country or issuer, as well as corporate accounting information, news and information needed to perform a bottom-up fundamental credit or equity analysis; it will also allow them to access one of the largest networks of professionals in the world of finance and provide them with a wide variety of analytical tools.
All this is based on a historical database of financial assets of the highest quality: stock indices, assets, currencies, government bonds, raw materials, investment funds, global statistics and economic data from different suppliers. In addition, the platform will allow participants to simulate asset purchase and sale transactions in its electronic platform. This information is especially useful for Master's subjects such as Fixed Income, Equities, Derivatives, Fundamental Analysis and Technical Analysis or Equity Management, among others.
The Bloomberg room has a sufficient number of screens so that all the participants on the Master’s course can attend classes comfortably and use their own screens in small groups.
