IBS offers the MSc in Financial Consulting by Research programme in English, leading to the Master of Science degree conferred by its British partner, The University of Buckingham.
Students have to consult with their supervisors on the campus 12 times per year. At the end of the programme the viva voce examination is also held on the Budapest campus.
Our programme offers you the opportunity to carry out research in financial topics and also obtain specific insight into consulting. If you are considering further academic study and you would like the opportunity to research a topic related to financial consulting, the 40,000-word dissertation enables you to test and apply the techniques and theories you have gained.
The Master’s by research programme offered by IBS allows you to pursue your own theories and ideas and contribute to research in your field. The emphasis of our Master’s by research programme is on independent research and one-on-one consultations.
IBS welcomes research proposals that match or are similar to IBS staff’s current research topics and/or fall within the potential supervisors’ areas of expertise. For a list of IBS faculty members with full supervisory privileges who are affiliated with this programme, please refer to the list below. (N.B. The list is not a comprehensive register of all potential supervisors as faculty from other programmes or faculty members without full supervisory privileges may request approval to supervise graduate students in this programme.)
Candidates apply online, sending in their supporting documents, and will be assessed on this basis by the Programme Director.
The programme does not offer systematic instruction to financial consulting; instead, the emphasis is on independent research and one-to-one supervision.
During the programme there is a close working relationship between student and supervisor. While the final thesis must be an independent work, it is the supervisor who offers advice on refining the topic (if necessary), on primary sources, on secondary reading, on research techniques and on writing the final text (which should be not more than 40,000 words). The supervisor shall always be the student’s primary contact for academic advice and support.
