Full-time MIF programme workload

The full-time executive Master in International Finance (MIF) programme starts in the last week of August and ends around mid-June. It is followed by a Master thesis research project and potentially an internship.

Full-time students typically attend 3 classes a week in the evening. Classes take approximately 9 hours per week. Class preparation, casework and assignments demand further 18-27 hours per week.


The programme consists of:

  • 9 regular core courses plus 2 mandatory electives (44 EC, 4 EC per course)
  • up to 2 extra-curricular electives 
  • Leadership Programme
  • International Study Trip (2 EC)
  • Corporate Governance: Dilemmas in the Financial Industry (1 EC)
  • Finance Research Workshops (3 EC)
  • Master's Thesis (15 EC)
  • MIF Pre-Course Training, if required 
  • Personal Development Portfolio (applicable to full-timers, no EC granted) 

Successful completion of the programme leads to a Master of Science (MSc) in International Finance from the University of Amsterdam.
