Our programme is characterised by its proximity to entrepreneurial practice: topical and relevant issues with case-related approaches to solutions play as important a role as do reputed guest lecturers and close cooperation with selected companies. The MAccFin programme thus creates optimal conditions for a successful career start. Objectives The Master’s Programme in Accounting and Finance (MAccFin) prepares you for responsible activities in the field of financial corporate management. No matter whether you look at it from the perspective of a consultant, a controller, an auditor or a banker: You analyse an organisation’s sustainable financial and earning power and issue recommendations for further development; You deal with the requirements imposed by the capital market and the regulators; You create M&A processes; You conduct a value-oriented assessment of the profitability of customers, distribution channels and brands, as well as drawing up alternative action scenarios; You conduct management performance assessments and create incentive-compatible management instruments. Financial management thus includes a systematic and reliable record of corporate performance, as well as reporting for the attention of investors and other stakeholders. Student profile Would you like to guide a company’s future development with sustainable success? Would you like to underpin its strategic growth opportunities with key figures and thus hone your arguments? Then you fit our target group excellently. As a MAccFin student, you have a great interest in issues of financial management from a CFO’s point of view. Your academic and practical curiosity puts you in a position not only to become acquainted with concepts in a theoretical manner but to scrutinise them, assess them autonomously and adapt them to fit the context. Simultaneously with your education in this field, you further develop your analytical and communicative skills. In this way, you will be prepared to assume responsibility in leading positions in a complex and risky environment in the future. Career outlook We would like to provide you with the wherewithal for an exciting and unique career. As a MAccFin graduate, you will not only have the necessary theoretical foundation but also be conversant with practice-oriented project work, positioning and opinion-leadership, as well as being involved in the production of solutions and decisions. MAccFin graduates find themselves in responsible positions in big and smaller corporations, on all continents, with responsibility in line functions, project management or consultancy, and as entrepreneurs. Typically, our graduates opt for business consultancy, investment banking, auditing (MAccFin ECTS credits will be credited to your auditor training) or a junior position in the finance department of a reputable firm. These starting positions are used as a stepping stone for growth with regard to functions, competence, responsibility, projects and leadership. Alternatively you can remain at university and opt for a doctorate and thus for further specialization in your field in order to embark on an academic career. MAccFin Curriculum The contents of the Master’s programme focus on the current and future tasks of financial management. Increasing demands for transparent and real-time information about current and planned activities and the financial results expected from them require a very good specialist interdisciplinary knowledge and skills to create and implement systems. Now all the compulsory courses are taught both in German and in English; the language can be chosen separately for each individual course. The three compulsory courses of the first semester provide a crosssection of financial management. The Auditing course shows the principles and rules according to which auditors conceptualise and conduct a group audit. Corporate Finance deals with models of corporate funding structures, whereas Management Accounting raises and discusses questions of corporate planning, steering and control. In the second semester, the Financial Analysis course focuses on instruments of financial analysis, as well as their critical assessment and their application in keeping with the context, while Financial Reporting according to the True & Fair View is concerned with the external perspective. In core electives you will be able to choose from a great number of courses. The general core electives should cover the bandwidth of financial management through the choice of four courses, whereas in the immersion core electives, two extensive courses are intended to enable students to specialise and thus to prepare them for their career starts. Students are therefore able to pursue their very own individual requirements and interests. About one in three courses is offered in English. Exchange We support you in the international orientation of your studies. Thus you can apply for the double degree programmes CEMS MIM or DM2. In addition, you will be able to spend an exchange semester at one of our more than 190 partner universities.

Master of Arts in Global Risk (MAGR)

MAs in Finance. This 13-month, cohort-based program builds on the core strengths of SAIS Europe by introducing students to a broad array of concepts and tools in the social sciences necessary to undertake sophisticated political and economic risk analysis. Students complete a capstone project in the form of a practicum or original thesis. Analyze, Assess, Act: Tackling Risk in the 21st Century The instability that has characterized the last decade has increased the demand for qualified professionals who are able to understand and analyze global risk in its many forms. Today's risk experts are no longer confined to the realm of actuarial tables or financial derivatives. Technology, politics, the environment, regulation, immigration, pandemics, and religious extremism are all areas where the theoretical frameworks of risk and uncertainty provide key insights and drive decision-making in both the public and private sectors. To meet the growing demands of candidates seeking to advance their understanding of global risk and the management of uncertainty, Johns Hopkins SAIS has launched a new master’s degree program, which is unique in Europe. The Master of Arts in Global Risk (MAGR) is a 13-month, cohort-based program at the SAIS Europe campus in Bologna, Italy. The MAGR builds on the school’s strengths in multi-disciplinary analysis by introducing students to a broad array of concepts and tools from the social sciences that are necessary to undertake sophisticated political and economic risk analysis. Courses are taught by Johns Hopkins SAIS faculty, renowned for their interdisciplinary approach to the study of economics, politics and history, as well as recent innovative work in the field of risk and uncertainty. MAGR students benefit from SAIS Europe's international community with classmates from over 40 countries. They also have access to extracurricular programming, such as the faculty research seminar series, where distinguished guests including scholars, diplomats, central bank governors, and business leaders deliver evening lectures and engage with students in an informal setting. Curriculum The MAGR is guided by a conceptual framework that focuses on the following key elements: Understanding the methodological problems associated with the analysis of risk and uncertainty; Examining the major sources of risk that characterize global, international, and domestic affairs; Analyzing the different theoretical approaches to managing risk in economic decision-making; Gaining in-depth insight into the major sources of risk that develop in the realm of elections, political parties, policies, and social movements at the national and sub-national levels; Developing specific expertise in a particular market, international organization, country, or region of the world. Thematic cohort classes lay the foundation for a Johns Hopkins SAIS approach to political and economic risk analysis that serves to complement more traditional training in quantitative methods. Students review economic concepts related to risk in the summer session, are introduced to statistical techniques in the first semester, the fundamentals of corporate finance in an intensive intercession course, and quantitative approaches to risk assessment in the second semester. The program starts with an intensive introduction to fundamental economic concepts and mathematical skills during a four-week summer term. During the fall semester, students explore the methodological problems associated with the analysis of risk and uncertainty (Risk in International Politics and Economics), the different theoretical approaches to managing risk in international relations (Risk in Political Thought), and apply quantitative approaches to risk assessment (Introduction to Statistics). Other areas of study include an assessment of how even establish democratic societies can rapidly become politically unstable (Instability and Political Change in Consolidated Democracies). During the spring semester, students learn about the principal sources of risk as they have developed in the realm of elections, political parties, policies, and protests at the national and sub-national levels of analysis (Sources of Risk in Global Politics), develop the techniques to evaluate the success of decision-making (Quantitative Approaches to Risk Assessment), and also take a number of elective courses. Students also begin work on their capstone project, a client-based, professional practicum or an original research paper, under the supervision of a Johns Hopkins SAIS faculty member, which they then conclude and present during their second summer term. Employment Outcomes The MAGR degree provides students with the skills, concepts, and analytical techniques required to understand and manage global risk factors in public policy and private-sector decision-making. MAGR graduates are prepared for a variety of roles in the public, private, and nonprofit sectors such as: Consultancies (political risk, environmental, public health, city planning, public affairs); The energy sector (political affairs, upstream/downstream, exploration); International organizations (e.g., European Commission, UN, World Bank, OSCE, NATO); Government (foreign service, military and intelligence, emergency management); The financial sector (financial services, asset management, rating agencies, banking and insurance). The SAIS Europe Office of Career Services works closely with MAGR students to guide their professional development and job searches. Given its strategic location in the heart of Europe, Bologna provides a convenient base for seeking employment in major capitals across the continent, where active networks of Johns Hopkins SAIS alumni occupy the highest ranks in European policymaking, business, and nongovernmental organizations. Furthermore, access to the professional positions in the sectors mentioned above would be facilitated by the internship opportunities and institutional relationships that are already available to SAIS Europe in policy research, public affairs, consulting, international business development, financial and macroeconomic analysis, political movements, central banking and more.
