What our students say about the MACFin

“Anna Lang”
What I particularly like about the MACFin is that we link theory and practice: in guest lectures, for instance, given by company representatives who teach us practical examples. In this way, we learn to apply our knowledge directly and in a real-life approach.
“Tenzin Deckeykhangsar”
The demanding curriculum of the MACFin, with its focus on financial management, provides us with profound knowledge that we develop and apply together with companies and start-ups. This provides the holistic nature of the content.
“Aileen Fuchs”
The MACFin offers us students a wide range of electives, both finance-specific and non-finance-specific. This allows us to tailor our studies to our personal interests, which I particularly appreciate.
