Financial Business Engineering

Master of Business Engineering: Financial Engineering

Transforming the financial world starts with transforming yourself

Do you have an interest in finance and business, as well as in statistics, mathematics and finance technology? Want to learn everything there is to know about finance, and then deep dive into your field of interest? If your answer is yes, then you were meant to be a financial business engineer. 

 But what does that title mean, really? In a nutshell: you are fully trained to solve finance problems and later as a manager to evaluate financial solutions within the context of your firm. You engineer the financial future of business ideas by transforming financial theory into corporate practice, in an ethical and sustainable way. 

The English Master in Business Engineering: Financial Engineering will be organised for the first time in the academic year of 2022 - 2023 by the Faculty of Business and Economics. Pending final approval by the Flemish Higher Education Committee.
