Are you interested in the managerial aspects of international financial transactions? This double degree Master programme focuses on how to efficiently manage the financial consequences of international activities.

These days internationally oriented firms and organisations do not merely need financial specialists who are acquainted with the latest finance and risk management tools and techniques. They are looking for professionals who can use these tools and techniques for managing information and business resources.

This programme equips you with knowledge, understanding and skills required to define, analyse and evaluate real and complex international financial management problems on both a societal level as well as on the level of companies and institutions and to design solutions for these problems. You will gain advanced academic knowledge of theoretical concepts in (international) financial management and you will be able to apply research methods.

The Master's degree programme in International Financial Management (IFM) focuses on the different aspects of financial management in an international business environment. You will develop the skills needed to become a financial manager in an international firm or organisation. The programme is offered jointly by the University of Groningen in the Netherlands and Uppsala University in Sweden. The double degree programme consists of two one-year master programmes that you can effectively study two in three semesters (i.e. 18 months/90 EC).

"The main thing I learned was that it is really important to have your own opinion about certain issues, but even more important to know how to defend your opinions."

"The Double Degree programme adds an extra dimension to the international character of the MSc in IFM. I would advise everybody to study abroad. The main thing I learned during my Master's was that it is really important to have your own opinion about certain issues, but even more important to know how to defend your opinions. Especially once I'd gained more knowledge of the field, the open debates became my favourite part of the programme...
As I work in the management consulting area, there are a lot of unpredictable situations and I have to adapt immediately to the clients' needs. My current job is actually more closely linked to my Master's than I expected. Firstly, the content of the Master's contributed to my knowledge of the management area: understanding the basic concepts within the field by showing the big picture of how a company is organized. And at a more technical level, it contributed to the knowledge about some of the key tools (management tools, financial tools, etc.)."

The MSc in IFM broadens my academic horizon

I thought it was important for my personal development to take my Master's degree abroad.

The advantage of the MSc in International Financial Management is that it combines two Master's degrees in the space of one and a half years. You take International Financial Management in Groningen in the first semester and the MSc in Business & Economics in Uppsala in Sweden in the second semester...
In the end the double programme turned out to be a perfect combination. In Groningen the emphasis was on academic theory, whereas the programme in Uppsala had a more practical slant.
