The students of the program learn about the conceptual aspects and theoretical models of finance, according to current knowledge in the different topics, and are trained to understand their practical implications through different pedagogical approaches linked to their professional environments. The program, consistent with the university and the school, has an explicit commitment to training professionals with skills for analysis and strategic planning in this disciplinary field to impact all areas of society positively. The Master’s Degree in Finance is developed through a semester admission process. It is taught in classroom mode and is eighteen (18) months in duration, organized in four (4) academic periods. The program includes a total of forty-two (42) credits, distributed in twenty-one (21) courses that respond to five (5) lines of training: financial risk, corporate finance, capital markets, management training, and in-depth studies.
Our program is developed on diverse, active methodologies oriented to developing professional competencies in a real-world setting. Therefore, the program combines diverse methodologies that stimulate the student’s learning based on ethics and sustainability of financial decisions.
The Master in Finance uses a wide variety of specialized programs in its classes, such as Crystal Ball, an application based on spreadsheets to develop predictive models, forecasting, simulation, optimization, pedagogical cases, and multimedia cases, among others.
Both national and international case studies are conducted, allowing the student to cover different areas of the organization under real situations through interaction with peers and professors, developing critical and analytical thinking and communication, argumentation, and persuasion skills.
Knowledge is acquired through questioning and engaging in a specific problem so that the student incorporates it into his/her mental structure. This methodology transfers previous learning to new situations.
Through practical exercises, we facilitate the strengthening of the participant’s abilities and skills in specific topics.
In the different courses, students are challenged to search for information, analyze concepts and make decisions, managing to incorporate research methodologies into management processes.
Expose participants to the exercise of generating a strategy and designing the different mechanisms and tools to advance and control its execution. The student understands and assesses the risks inherent in the decision-making process. Management simulation software allows for effectively integrating and considering most of the areas of an organization, their interrelationships, and complexities at the time of implementing a strategy.
These updating spaces aim to rescue the knowledge and experience of professors, business leaders, guilds, and recognized experts, to complement the training process.
They focus on theoretical approaches that professors enrich with examples, thus enhancing students’ understanding of the subject matter.
Pedagogical case analyses and national and international case studies are conducted, allowing the student to meet the learning objectives of the courses by taking real situations as contexts through interaction with peers and professors. Thus, developing critical and analytical thinking, communication, argumentation, and persuasion skills.
Knowledge is acquired through questioning, focusing on a specific problem for the student to structure and propose solutions. This methodology transfers previous learning to new situations, and research is incorporated into management processes to support their approaches.
In the different courses, students must work in teams supporting each other to carry out projects and reports in which they must articulate for the development of activities such as: searching for information, analyzing concepts, reaching conclusions, and making decisions.
Expose participants to a virtual exercise that models real market situations. Students in groups or individually must analyze the context, develop a strategy that allows them to meet the challenges posed by the market scenario, and implement measures to fulfill the plan. In this exercise, the student understands and assesses the risks inherent in the decision-making process. Management simulation software allows for effectively integrating and considering most of the areas of an organization, their interrelationships, and complexities at the time of implementing a strategy. Real-time results promote reflection on the impact of your decisions and the ability to restructure your plans to achieve your objectives. Additionally, teaching via simulation provides the opportunity to view errors as an opportunity for learning and reflection.
These teaching experiences focus on complex problems and challenge students with real situations and dilemmas to develop leadership and decision-making skills. This is done through a framework that emphasizes systems thinking, sustainability, and leadership.
