Duisenberg Honours programme

The Duisenberg Honours Programme is designed for highly ambitious students with excellent analytical and leadership abilities, who want to attain a deep level of knowledge across different specialisations.

Combination programme for excellent students

The Duisenberg Honours programme is a challenging combination of completing a track, plus 2 elective courses from another track, plus an internship. The total study load is 85EC.

In this honours programme you finish all courses within 1 year, together with your thesis. During or after these courses, you will also do a supervised Master's internship of at least 3 months. Not only will you perform the standard internship tasks at your company, but you will also work on (and complete) an advice on a challenging problem that your company faces.

This honours programme can be completed in 1 year. The maximum time you have to finish the programme is 1.5 year.


If you choose this Honours programme, there are some requirements that you need to meet:

  1. Complete all compulsory courses of the MSc Finance and specialisation/elective course of one of the 5 main tracks (Corporate Finance, Quantitative Finance, Banking and Regulation, Asset Management, Real Estate) within 1 academic year.
  2. Complete 2 additional courses in the 1st academic year, one in Period 2 and one in Period 4. These courses should be electives for another track but not for your chosen main track.
  3. Complete the Master's Internship within 1.5 years of entering the MSc Finance programme.

If you plan to follow this honours programme, you will develop a provisional study plan, which needs to be ready by the 1st week of October. This plan will be reviewed together with the Finance Department to check for any conflicts in scheduling or pre-requisites between courses.
