These master allows you to improve your decisions making in the stock market and financial market, to provide participants with tools for the stock exchange and financial markets that generate value, to control the tools and instruments of planning and budgeting that support the financial decision making process and to operate in an dynamic environment. Therefore, you will develop the skills necessary to be able to successfully manage a modern enterprise from the point of view of the function of the financial advisor.

The market demands more flexible financial accountants for two reasons: the responsibility of the Financial Expert within the different areas of the company is expanding and the dynamism of the economy forces them to be increasingly alert from the financial point of view.
