Certified AMF (Autorité des Marchés Financiers) Examination: Results of Master Finance et Stratégie students

All future banking professionals are required to pass the AMF's certified examination. As of this year passing the exam has become mandatory for first year students (M1) enrolled in the master Finance et Stratégie programme.

88.9% of the students who took the exam this past May succeeded on their first try!

Sciences Po is the only school in France that offers its graduate Finance et Stratégie students the opportunity to take the certified AMF examination as a free and compulsory component of their programme.

Acquiring the AMF certificate is naturally a means not only of reinforcing our students' employability but also greatly beneficial for their future careers as it guarantees a solid grounding in French banking regulations.
