Track 104 “Research in Finance” of the Master Finance at PSL Research University Paris-Dauphine  (M2 104) aims to give students an in-depth knowledge of finance in both theoretical and operational terms. This second year of the Master is entirely taught in English. With an education through research approach, it covers  the main areas of finance: corporate financial decision-making, capital markets, valuation of securities and derivatives, portfolio management, quantitative tools (econometrics, programming langages),  etc. With the range of courses on offer, each student can create their own tailor-made study course.

The M2 104  Research in Finance offers education through research, "at the fore-front of knowledge". Students are required to write a Master’s thesis on an innovative topic, which enables them to gain true expertise in the field of finance.

Past students pursue careers in Risk Management, Asset Management, Financial Research, the General Inspectorate of Finance, Quantitative Research, Capital Market Trading, Trading, Consulting and Academia (French and foreign universities, French grandes écoles).
