    “The knowledge I’ve gained about investing and business analysis is of enormous added value to me. I understand financial data faster and can engage in more substantive conversations with clients.” Read more about Ruud's experience »

  • Linde Penn
    Head of FSC Veghel, DHL Finance Services B.V.

    "The Executive Master in Finance exceeded my expectations of broadening my view by enabling me to gain more theoretical knowledge of financial decision making. The insight you get from the in class lectures, break out sessions and the interesting different views and experiences from fellow students, adds a tremendous value to the theoretical part of the program.
    My main take-away from this program is that there are many theories on which financial decision making is based, but the essence is to understand not only the methods but also the underlying motivation, assumptions and information used for decision making. Which is fully in line with the slogan never stop asking!
    I am sure that having done this this program supports me in making more sustainable business decisions and helps me in analyzing and understanding the decisions of others.
    Finalizing the studies next to my job, mastering more complex financial cases gave me a lot of confidence, a massive level of new energy and a reason to be proud of myself."
