Students in the part-time programme are given the option of attending and taking exams in three courses equal to 10 ECTS credits each, instead of writing a dissertation. The three courses are:

  1. Special Issues in Finance and Investments
  2. Special Topics in Banking
  3. Information Technologies, Trading and Investment Strategies

Issues related to the writing of the dissertation (such as completion date, language, font, instructions for the summary, content, structure and presentation of the work, preparation of the bibliography, and so forth) are explained in the Guidelines for Preparation of the Master’s Dissertation.

The evaluation of the Master’s dissertation is based on strict scientific criteria with regard to its originality, depth and analysis, composition and quality. If the student does not receive a passing grade on the dissertation, the student can be re-examined one additional time, not earlier than three months nor later than six months after the original examination. If the student does not receive a passing grade on the dissertation from the second examination, the student is required to leave the Programme, upon decision of the Programme’s Coordinating Committee.
