I was lucky enough to speak with someone from admissions at the Barcelona Graduate School of Economics about their master in finance program. I hope this interview helps shed some light on the program.

Former students are employed at top investment banks, financial consultancies, and government finance ministries. Many have gone on to pursue doctoral research in financial economics at prestigious EU and US universities.
