This is a two year Master’s programme at the HSE Faculty of Economics but with an interdisciplinary approach. Study will not be tied to one faculty and the range of elective courses is broader than in the past with specialisations based on research seminars where the main body of teaching takes place.

The programme focuses on the functioning of the financial sector, and the analysis of processes happening on the financial markets which reflect how financial institutions operate (including banks and insurance companies).
