About:

The Institute

The Swiss Finance Institute is a private foundation created in 2006 by Switzerland's banking and finance community in cooperation with leading Swiss universities. It advances research, doctoral training and executive education in banking and finance. The Institute is supported by Swiss banks, the Swiss Stock Exchange, Swiss universities and the Swiss Federal Government.

Our activities

Research

The Swiss Finance Institute is a research organization with a faculty of more than 50 full time researchers engaged in high level research in the field of banking and finance and related disciplines. The Swiss Finance Institute relies on an extensive network of nearly 100 local and international faculty members to participate in its Research and Education activities.

Executive Education

In executive education the Swiss Finance Institute distinguishes itself in two ways: First, its executive education offering is focused purely on the finance industry, but with a global orientation. Second, the Institute uses its unique position as a public/private partnership to combine academic insights from researchers, practical experiences from industry experts, and peer discussion among participants. This provides an excellent environment in which to meet new challenges in finance. When you enrol in an Executive Course in Finance you join a program that has evolved over more than 25 years. We constantly update our offerings in executive education and many participants return to keep their knowledge and competencies current.

Our courses are accredited by the Chartered Financial Analyst Institute (CFA). The Swiss Finance Institute is a public private partnership between universities and financial institutions with the goal of fostering high impact research and education in banking and finance. It connects to the global knowledge community in finance through its faculty of over 100 local and international faculty members.

Each Executive Course in Finance addresses a single finance topic in a way to achieve a maximum impact. Teaching the concepts is of lasting value, while focussing on applications in finance delivers the short-term benefit so crucial in today's world. First offered in 1982, the Executive Courses in Finance comprise a total of 10 expert workshops given by internationally recognized lecturers from the Swiss Finance Institute and from other top academic institutions in Europe and the United States. Practitioners from the financial services industry also contribute to the curriculum.

Courses last 2-5 days and are conducted in small groups. Former participants hail from nearly 100 countries and more than 1400 banks, insurance companies and related financial institutions. We offer an interactive setting with seminars, workshops and time for informal exchange of ideas. You bring a sound understanding of finance fundamentals and a desire to update and develop your expertise. All courses are conducted in English and are held in Geneva.
