Hands-on topics for the financial industry

At WU Executive Academy, we understand the busy lifestyle of a business executive, manager, or entrepreneur, and as a result, we build our programs to cater to you and your schedule—not the other way around. In fact, the modular structure of our 20 months part-time programs ensures you receive the most up-to-date training, while spending little time away from work. During the program, you will specialize in the following topics

  • Investment Management
  • Financial Risk Management & Financial Innovation in Global Financial Markets
  • Corporate Finance
  • Business Valuation & Creating Value by Corporate Restructuring
  • Behavioural Finance
  • Hot Topics in Finance
  • Computational Finance

The three pronged structure of our Professional MBA programs allows students to enhance their management and leadership skills through a Business Core module, develop industry-specific skills during a Specialization module, and practice both in a Master Thesis module. Additionally, our state-of-the-art e-learning platform makes it easy for you to study while you work, applying what you learn along the way!

The overall concept of the Professional MBA Finance, created by Prof. Frühwirth, is really convincing. All components of this MBA program have been carefully designed: The curriculum contains the most important Finance topics, including the interface of Finance and Psychology and "Hot Topics in Finance". The webpage shows the learning outcomes in a very detailed and clear way. The professors teaching in this program have been thoroughly selected from international universities and companies. The Distinguished Guest Speaker events round off the classes by adding additional industry perspectives, which I consider very important.

International field trip to Boston, Cambridge & Harvard

One important part of the program is an international residency in the USA, where you will visit international companies and listen to selected guest speakers from top universities and firms. You will get special insight into the American way of doing business and the strong financial system in the Boston and Cambridge area.
