Frequently Asked Questions
Should one have good grades in order to get accepted to the Magisterium?
Yes, but not only. Indeed, several criteria are taken into account in our enrolment process. Furthermore, the MCQ test, which all applicants are called to, allows us to assess their level fairly accurately, and provides us more precise information than their only school reports and transcripts. The interview and the file review will then make it possible to distinguish and, eventually, rank the eligible candidates. At the end of this selection process, the jury will draw up the list of admitted candidates.
What kind of questions are asked at the interview?
The interview aims to test, on the one hand, the motivation and common sense of the candidates and, on the other hand, their theoretical or technical knowledge.
Should one have a good level of English in order to enter the Magisterium?
It is desirable to have a good basis in English, but it is not the single selection criterion. Other things being equal, over the three years of Magisterium, students will benefit from intensive English courses which will allow them to acquire a good level of English at the end of the training.
Does the Magisterium train its students exclusively in market finance?
Absolutely not. The Magisterium prepares its students for market finance as well as for corporate finance with lessons divided between theory and practice (with interventions by leading professionals from finance for instance). More precisely, it aims to combine a solid scientific training with a high level of professional specialisation.
In recent years, many alumni have wanted to specialize in market finance. Final year students are currently focusing on corporate finance, audit, risk control and the insurance business. For the next promotions, we are thinking about the idea of setting up new options on the regulation and socially responsible investment, for instance.
Is it possible to repeat a year at the Magisterium?
No, students who do not validate their year are automatically excluded from the Magisterium. It must be recognized that this rarely happens. However, should this happen to you, know that you could go back to the standard university curriculum without losing your year by taking the re-sit exams.
Due to the Covid-19 epidemic, the usual application process has been modified.
