Many of the offered courses focus on such applications. Students will also gain familiarity with the information system Bloomberg, which is available in the faculty’s trading room.

Through the program, students will gain a sound understanding of cutting-edge techniques used by financial institutions, consultants, regulators and many other economic institutions.
