We are very pleased to invite you all to IE´s first Virtual Master Class – Masters in Finance: Managing Money in Times of Crisis that will take place on November 24th 2011 at 18.00 hrs Madrid local time (CLICK HERE to register). This Master Class will be the opening to a series of upcoming virtual Master Classes on the most current and appealing financial topics that will take place regularly during the academic year 2011/2012 which aim at giving prospective candidates who cannot visit our Madrid campus the opportunity of experiencing a finance class at IE.  

The Master Class

The crises of recent years have weakened conventional notions about asset class returns and traditional approaches to financial investments. This Master Class looks at the backdrop to this, some of the challenges that lie ahead for asset managers, and at how markets attempt to process an increasingly complex, and global, news-flow.
