The expert's corner

Pierre Francotte

Academic Director of the Advanced Master in Financial Markets, and Professor of Finance

Solvay Brussels School of Economics and Management

Within the wide range of masters in finance in Europe, the masters in Financial Markets fill a special purpose: they focus on giving students the means to bridge the gap between theory and practice in financial markets, thereby providing a useful complement to a classical graduate school curriculum and giving an ideal background to help them start their career.

These financial markets programmes are generally targeted to students who just finished their graduate studies or are in the first phase of their professional career. Their design reflects the recognition that, in today’s financial markets, employers tend to favour, in their selection of young candidates, those who are able to use their competencies in a practical context right from the start. Beyond deepening students’ mastery of cutting edge financial tools, their main goal is to build the students’ understanding of how to use these tools in a professional environment. They also typically focus on developing a transversal understanding of how the financial markets function in practice, and how they fit in a broader societal environment following the last financial crisis.

Accordingly, teachers include expert and senior practitioners who can share their practical experience with students, using case studies and current real cases in class as a means of sharpening students’ skills and competencies. These programmes seek to train a new generation of future senior managers and specialists, not only in banks, asset managers and consulting firms, but also with regulators of the financial markets
