Tilläggsinformation (är i kraft 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

A maximum of 80 students can be accepted to the course. 

- Students at Aalto Finance M.Sc. programme (i.e. who have graduated as B.Sc.) will be guaranteed a seat on Finance M.Sc. courses. Finance M.Sc. students re-taking the course (grade already registered in WebOodi) will not be prioritized and can participate only if there are places remaining. 

- CEMS students are similarly guaranteed a seat for Finance M.Sc. courses, which have been designated as CEMS courses. 

Remaining seats are prioritized as follows, in the order of registration in WebOodi within one category: 
1. Finance M.Sc. exchange students from other universities 
2. Aalto Finance B.Sc. students with a finished B.Sc. thesis (registered in transcript of records) 
3. All other M.Sc. students 

Please follow carefully the registration deadlines of the courses and exams! Missing registration deadline automatically foregoes a guaranteed seat for Finance M.Sc. courses and puts prospective student at the bottom of the prioritization list. 

Students may be required to confirm their registration by signing the participation list circulated during the first lecture.
