BSE arm ties up with Frankfurt management school

May 16, 2013 16:44 IST

HandshakeBSE Institute, a subsidiary of premier bourse BSE, has collaborated with the Frankfurt School of Finance and Management for the Master of Science in Finance programme.

Spread across four semesters, MSc in Finance is a two year full-time degree program, BSE said in a statement on Thursday.

The first of the four semesters will be conducted at the BSE Institute campus in Mumbai and the remaining three semesters will be conducted at Frankfurt School of Finance and Management in Frankfurt, Germany.

The programme would begin in September this year and the last date for submission of admission forms is July 31, it added.

"This program gives the student a unique opportunity to gain an in-depth understanding of finance and a truly global perspective by learning and experiencing financial products, services and markets in Asian and European contexts and environments," said Ambarish Datta, MD & CEO, BSE Institute.

MSc in Finance is a cross-continent program designed to help students earn a world-class masters degree in finance and build a culturally diverse peer network with students from many different countries.

The programme will be conducted partly in Asia and partly in Europe, thereby offering students an access to diverse classmates, companies, industries, and partners.

The two institutions will also offer a 20 per cent scholarship to some students, the statement said.

"MSc in Finance acknowledges and actively incorporates an international dimension towards the study of finance.

"The bi-national set-up with BSE Institute and Frankfurt School as two highly regarded educational and research institutions in the field of financial education, supports the curriculum's global agenda," said Udo Steffens, President and CEO, Frankfurt School of Finance & Management.
