Program structure

The program was constructed to balance the theory of asset and risk management with its practical counterpart. ARIMA students broaden their knowledge in the field of risk measurement, valuation of financial instruments as well as model-based management. Additionally, the use of IT tools (VBA, R, MATLAB, Python) provides support during the process of knowledge application, where it can become a fundament of understanding the advanced modeling and valuation techniques.

In this course, students work in small groups. The individual approach allows a more flexible timetable, for example, modules 2 days per week. The elastic study time and also fitting the exam schedules for the working students is a perfect option for those who want to start their career during university.


Our professors create a highly qualified team with fluent English skills, and the majority have great experience in international cooperation. They apply innovative educational methodologies, such as acquisition methods or practical methods with the use of new technologies eg. simulator games. For the students, they combine the theory of business with the practical aspects of it. Our University frequently invites guest professors from foreign Universities, but also professionals from the field, among all from UBS Solution - the business partner of the course ( and the whole Finance and Accounting Department).
