Teaching guidelines

The MSc in Finance Committee approved the following criteria for the approval of Erasmus and other international mobility plans at its meeting on 5 October 2012.

1. The MSc in Finance Committee encourages students to gain an international mobility experience (Erasmus programme or other forms of international mobility).

2. The student proposes a study plan, with the training activities that he proposes to carry out at the host university (activities to be recognized) and with the list of training activities that in return he asks him to be given a bonus by the study plan of the Master's degree course in Finance (replaced activities), attaching all the information (programmes,...) necessary to the Committee for didactics for evaluation, which is done globally on the entire study plan presented, including all the information (programmes,...) necessary to the Committee for teaching evaluation, which is done globally on the entire study plan presented. Consequently, in case of failure to obtain all the credits of the approved whole of the activity to be recognized, in the final phase the student will have to re-submit a proposal containing the training activities related only to the credits obtained and the Committee will have to re-approve the study plan.

3. The training activities proposed by the student at the host university must comply with the following requirements:

3.1. The total number of credits for the activities to be recognised cannot be less than the total number of credits for the substituted activities; exceptions are allowed only in the case of small differences due to the different "size" habits of the activities between the host university and the Master's degree course in Finance.

3.2. The activities to be recognised should be Level II (Msc). If the host university does not follow the cycle scheme of the Bologna process (I level 3 years, II level 2 years), the Committee will have to ensure that the proposed activities are part of the 2nd level. In particular cases, following a request with written motivation by the student, first level training activities may be accepted, such as (not exclusive) in the case of linguistic studies or other activities of study outside the Faculty (computing in a Faculty of Engineering, mathematics in a Faculty of Mathematics,...).

3.3. The contents of the activities to be recognised must not significantly overlap with those of activities that the student has already carried out or will carry out in the course of a Master's Degree in Finance.

3.4. If among the activities replaced there is an activity classified as characterizing during the Master's degree course in Finance, the activities to be recognized must include training activities for an adequate number of credits that show a significant match of training objectives and contents with those of the activity to be replaced.

3.5. If among the activities replaced there is an activity classified as elective in the Master's degree course in Finance, the activities to be recognized must include training activities for an adequate number of credits that show a significant correspondence of training objectives with those of the scientific field of discipline of the activity to be replaced.

3.6. If the substituted activities include language or IT training activities, the activities to be recognized must include activities for an adequate number of credits that show a significant match between training objectives and those of the activities replaced.

3.7. If among the activities replaced there is an activity classified as "other at the student's choice" (free credits) during the Master's degree course in Finance, the activities to be recognized must include activities for an adequate number of credits that show a significant match of training objectives with those of the Master's degree course in Finance.
