Are you curious to learn how to bridge the gap in methodology, thinking, and language and between “number-crunching” finance professionals and customer-centric marketers? Are you interested in understanding biases and heuristics in consumer and investor financial decision-making? Are you interested in understanding how both financial as well as marketing actions drive firm performance and how they relate to each other? Then the interdisciplinary specialisation in Marketing-Finance could be right for you. As part of the master’s programme in International Business, the specialisation combines core Finance, Marketing as well as specialised Marketing-Finance courses.

The specialisation in Marketing-Finance not only teaches you an understanding of finance, marketing, consumer psychology and their interrelations but also how to integrate them in an environment that aims at maximizing financial performance as well as customer value.

      Maastricht University offers various opportunities to develop yourself outside of the tutorial rooms. Research Project Maastricht is an international consultancy project consisting of twelve UM-students. In January, the team will travel to China, to conduct company-specific research. China has a unique business culture, and last week the RPM team was trained by the Confucius Institute. The training focused on how to behave in Chinese business spheres, how to interpret a 'hmm I will think about it' in a business meeting, and do's and dont's during a business dinner. A perfect preparation for the research period in China!
