    Enrollment :

    The course is offered to BIZ students only. A maximum of 70 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. Students re-taking the course (grade already registered) will not be prioritized and can participate only if there are places remaining.

    Remaining seats are prioritized as follows:
    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 at the School of Business

    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.
