The Master of Science in Finance has clear objectives, related to applying the knowledge. The graduates should be able to demonstrate a deep analytical knowledge and an operational understanding of financial concepts, thereby having attained skills sufficient to apply financial theory to practical problems and working knowledge of empirical tools including software programs from professional financial vendors and investment banks. To this end, the program is designed to equip students with a strong foundation in analytical and empirical analysis and to educate them more generally about the research process in finance and related disciplines. Thus, the program is primarily professionally oriented, leading to a job in the financial or business sector. Graduates can work as, for example, fund managers, security analysts, risk managers, asset allocation specialists, financial engineers, hedge fund analysts, and traders. Career opportunities are chiefly with asset management companies, brokerages and investment banks, hedge funds, private banks and pension funds....
Sustainability is more than just a buzzword. Raw materials are one of the fastest depleting resources on Earth. A steady and sustainable supply of many of these materials
Awarded the EIT Label in 2017
Sustainability is more than just a buzzword. Raw materials are one of the fastest depleting resources on Earth. A steady and sustainable supply of many of these materials is vital for a decarbonising society, renewable energy infrastructure, electric mobility but also consumer products and electronics. The outdated make-take-use-dispose model is no longer valid in a world of finite resources. In order to deal with this challenge, three leading European universities cooperated to develop a new Erasmus+ Master programme – the International Master of Science in Sustainable and Innovative Natural Resource Management (SINReM). SINReM was created to educate a new generation of professionals who can engineer technology to reinvent materials science, and gain competence, expertise and confidence in developing solutions in the sustainable use of materials....

Awarded the EIT Label in 2016
The EMerald Master programme was created to answer the urgent need expressed by the European Union to create a resource efficient Europe. As the EU recognised the importance of mineral and metal resources in our modern economy, it also realised that the raw materials industries were facing a critical skills shortage.
The EMerald Master programme aims to train a new generation of engineers with an entrepreneurial mindset and a global vision of the value chain, putting the extraction of mineral and metal resources at the beginning of a circle which ends by collecting end-of-life products and recovering valuable materials out of the urban mines (circular economy). Therefore, the Master course will focus on two aspects:...
The AMASE Masters course has been successfully implemented over the last five years with funding from the Erasmus Mundus Programme.
Maria from Colombia studied AMASE from 2015-2017. She was in Spain and France. She says:Now I am a PhD student at University of Amsterdam. This job allows me to strengthen my skills as researcher within an industrial focus and that is something I find very valuable. The international experiences I got from AMASE had been of great use to help me adapting to this new country.
Mike from Canada studied from 2013-2015 in France and Germany, he says: If you have the will and drive to seize it, AMASE offers you the opportunity to seriously challenge and develop yourself in much more than academics. I recognized that chance and embraced it completely.
The program is strongly connected to the research areas industrial biotechnology, energy recovery, and polymer materials.
By studying on this unique Master’s programme in Resource Recovery, which is given by the Swedish Centre for Resource Recovery, your ability to analyze and resolve problems related to disposing, processing and recycling of residuals into useful products will be developed.
Such a useful and salable product can be an item to the automotive industry made from biological material which can easily be recycled. It could be biogas or ethanol to replace oil and petrol. Or electricity, heating and cooling produced sustainably by thermal treatment of waste. Why not fish feed in addition to solve a waste problem and also reduce the depletion of the oceans? Regardless of whether you will be working as a researcher or work in business and management and you will be a global community builder, with knowledge and skills to take on challenges in areas even not directly related to resource recovery....
