After taking an introductory course in market finance during my last year of undergraduate studies, I wanted to delve deeper into the subject while further developing my knowledge in corporate finance. The Master in Responsible and Sustainable Finance perfectly aligned with my expectations. The program offered is comprehensive and covers all sectors of finance, allowing us to acquire skills in key areas of corporate finance and markets. The guidance provided by industry professionals provides us with a more concrete and practical perspective, as well as daily advice related to both coursework and professional expectations from companies.

The real advantage of this master’s program lies in the opportunity to complete a first-year internship, which I carried out at Crédit Mutuel Nord Europe as a regulatory risk analyst, and a second-year apprenticeship at LCL as a corporate credit analyst. These experiences allowed me to confirm my career goals and opened doors for me in the banking sector

« With a 4-month placement in my 1st year and work/study training in my 2nd year, the Master in Corporate Finance and Financial Markets met my expectations, combining theoretical knowledge with professional experience. Many courses are taught by professionals from the world of finance and business management. This represents a valuable opportunity for students, allowing us to discuss and explore their experiences in business.

The Master’s in Corporate Finance and Financial Markets helped me to swiftly integrate into the professional world, as I was hired as a management accountant by the company where I did my placement and my work/study programme. »

« This master’s degree allowed me to develop sound financial knowledge, providing me with practical business skills.

The work/study programme proved very rewarding. I was able to put the knowledge acquired throughout my studies into practice during my placement and work/study programme, which made it easier to get my first job.

Looking beyond theoretical knowledge, this master’s degree helps to develop the professional and personal qualities we need for the jobs of tomorrow: agility, efficiency and responsiveness »
