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. The cocktail receptions after the DGS events, in which I participated myself several times, create additional networking opportunities for the students. Moreover, I am sure that the field trip to Boston, Cambridge and Harvard is a great experience for the students and strongly extends their horizons. As a result, the students and alumni of the Professional MBA Finance that I met convinced me with their knowledge, international background, substantial work experience and mature personality.
In general, the target group of the Professional MBA Finance comprehends executives and high potentials from the financial industry and from non-financial corporations/institutions with a professional background or an interest in the accounting, finance and controlling area. Specific examples are:
