"Financial Data Management" specialisation

Your Financial Data degree in a world-renowned Business School

With the M2 Financial Data Management, develop genuine expertise in finance, database management and predictive tools, and learn to manage multidisciplinary teams. 

Thanks to a teaching approach based on case studies, business games, statistics (algorithms) / simulations, develop expertise in finance and digital transformation.

This final year specialisation of the Master in Management is accessible both in the classical route and as a work-study programme (under specific conditions for international students).

In a context where agile decision-making is paramount and the panorama is increasingly unpredictable, it is worth knowing how to manage ever more volatility and uncertainty. Tools used are more predictive than they were and the future looks to be moving towards prescriptive tools. These new tools - everything from KPIs to predictive analysis software - use AI techniques and machine learning.
