In the Master's programmes in Business Administration and International Business Administration, students may minor in „Banking & Finance“. Those pursuing their Master´s degree in Economics also have the possibility to specialize in Finance.

Starting in the 2021/22 winter term, the Master's programme "Research in Economics and Finance" will be offered jointly with the Institute of Economics as preparation for a PhD program in Economics or Finance at our faculty.
