The Master in Financial Markets at UPF Barcelona School of Management will teach you to analyse and interpret global financial markets, efficiently manage any portfolio or estate, and explore the reality of financial products in order to transfer them to clients, with a critical, differential and competitive viewpoint.

The Master in Financial Markets touches on all the basic aspects of financial management and consultancy, and the current reality of private banking. During the course you will revise basic aspects of statistics and financial mathematics, study the structure of markets and products, and look at the taxes specific to new financial products. You will also come to understand the current dynamics of collective investment funds and how to detect and develop leadership skills that will be useful in your professional career. You will thus be able to create any type of portfolio made up of the most complex financial assets.
