**Joint 3rd place in best MSc Finance in the Netherlands - Higher Education Guide Masters 2017**

In this double degree programme, you obtain two masters at two renowned universities: MSc Finance from the University of Groningen (UG) and MSc Finance from Lund University School of Economics and Management (LUSEM). Both programmes are research driven. Yet, whereas the programme in Groningen is more practically oriented with courses such as company valuation, institutional investment management and banking, insurance and risk management, the programme at LUSEM goes deeper into theoretical modelling and applying econometric techniques.

Once you have completed this double degree you will have academic knowledge and expertise in solving complex financial problems and understanding contemporary international literature in finance. You will learn how to apply this academic knowledge when you're analyzing new or unknown financial problems.

Waarom aan de RUG?

With this double degree programme you are experienced in work and interact in two different academic contexts in a truly international environment. While the Groningen track leans more towards a link with practice, the Lund program is more oriented towards economic theory and a quantitative approach.

Besides, it is an international accredited programme, ensuring a high quality education that according to the AACSB standard only 1% of universities worldwide meet.
