Visiting Faculty


MEF Visiting Professor Program

MEF program invites each academic year visiting faculties to give optional classes to our students on very specialized topics. The topics are intended to be complementary the ordinary course program for MEF students. These classes are unique opportunities for our students to learn more about the world of Finance in a broad sense. Classes are given as short courses (20 hours, and attendance is mandatory for all lectures) and students are admitted upon selection.

During the period of staying of the visiting professor, MEF students have the opportunity to discuss directly with him or her also outside the class time.
