Grading is based upon the European Credit Transfer system (ECTS) a grading scale developed to facilitate the understanding and comparison of grades given according to different national systems. Awarding of ECTS grades per curriculum component breaks down as follows:
Language of instruction
The Masters in Finance is delivered entirely in English, including exams, class work, support materials and Work Projects.
By graduation, students pursuing an International Masters in Finance should be fluent in two languages (including mother tongue) and functional in a third.
Students must complete a Masters Work Project, which is equivalent to a Masters Thesis. This can be developed in the following ways:
- Directed Research: - an original piece of work on a topic proposed and supervised by a professor. This may also take the form of a case study.
- Field Labs: students undertake specific projects that replicate real-life working environments in a controlled setting and with the support of an experienced instructor.
- Internship: an internship where students develop a project in a problem-solving format for a company, in response to a pre-defined question/problem raised by the host organization and under the supervision of a Nova faculty member. Students may apply for internships offered by Nova or obtain one directly from a company via their own contacts.
