AIMS

The training provides a comprehensive approach to insurance and financial markets. It gives students both empirical and theoretical skills which allow them to specifically understand market mechanisms. The main goal is to provide the student with a certain number of theoretical and empirical tools to allow him/her to evolve in most jobs of the financial and actuarial sector and to grasp the future stakes. This track is co-organized with Centrale Marseille. The majority of courses specific to this track are common to both schools.

FUNDAMENTAL PREREQUISITES

Solid bases in microeconomics (especially contract theories), as well as probabilities (conditional probabilities among others) and statistics (estimating and testing) are necessary. Notions in economics of uncertainty are recommended.

PROFESSIONAL SKILLS TO BE ACQUIRED

Main professional skills targeted at after graduation :

  • To understand how insurance and finance markets work.
  • To apprehend and model financial and insurance related settings to build relevant strategies.
  • To evaluate a company or project with a view to funding or to deal
  • To evaluate a financial asset prior to positioning (buying/selling)
  • To compare various investment strategies
  • To measure the performance of financial assets
  • To modelize behaviour in the face of risk
  • To solve complex financial problems

INTERNSHIPS AND SUPERVISED PROJECTS

At the end of the year, the students go through an internship and write a master’s internship report . The goal of the report is to prove their ability to apply the conceptual tools they have acquired to issues of the professional world. The student must therefore identify the question, implement the tools and be able to communicate the results to a professional audience as well as an academic one. The project is tutored by a scholar and an internship director (a member of the business). The report is defended in front of a jury comprised of the academic tutor, the internship director and two other people with acknowledged skills (and at least one scholar).
