Continuous education in finance for experienced financial professionals (or indeed Executive Master in Finance Alumni), Solvay Brussels School's Specialised Series in Finance aims to be your number one source for innovative concepts, knowledge updates and thematic education in the sector of finance.


You've been searching to perfect your knowledge or to discover a particular theme in your on-going career path or even a specific business requirement? Each module proposes a subject presented cross-sectionally through the disciplines required for its understanding and mastering.


These series constitute an excellent continuous education in finance and can be tailored to your  needs, as you can choose any subject individually. Some of these thematic modules are still provided in “bundles” for a particular objective, such as a certification for example. Please take a look at the various forms per module available or at the list provided on the website. Each module termsheet presents in detail the learning outcomes and the outline that can be expected.




The list is updated on an opportunistic basis, i.e. we keep monitoring the themes that our alumni network and corporate clients request whilst locating the top-notch lecturers that might perfectly provide the required delivery with a proven experience in the topic. Some modules are even animated by various lecturers when a subject is multidisciplinary, such as Mergers and Acquisitions, for example, where tax, legal, financial and industrial issues arise.


The great particularity of these specialized modules is also their delivery. We pretend to propose a very diversified series of specific subjects and to be able to offer each module for classes starting from a size of 7 participants.


The modules do not involve any grading but require active participation and preparation.




The key quality advantage of the EMF and its specialised series is the capacity of the Solvay Brussels School to have identified for you those top-notch worldwide lecturers with a specific background in each theme. Each lecturer combines a long-standing  experience in the topic together with an academic structure and pedagogy.




Our potential theme list includes: Each module offer or bundle of modules offered is presented after this short presentation with its own form. Please contact us to get the latest list.

* Every single module can be taken apart, for a fee of 700 EUR per day session, each module comprising a given number of sessions (2,3,4).
