International Student Conference «Modern Finance: Risks, Challenges, Values»


Facing with several crises, modern finance has changed rapidly. There are new challenges: how to reveal global risks? What a company must undertake for risks’ mitigation? Maybe risks give an opportunity to survive and capture market leadership? What values and corporate objectives are the attributes of finance? Whose interests financial officers serve?

To discuss these questions, the Master’s Programme “Finance” is announcing a call for applications to the  International Student Conference ‘Modern Finance: Risks, Challenges, Values’. The Master's Programme ‘Finance’ is now a double-diploma programme,  a part of the IMESS consortium  governed by University College London.
