Training and professional development

Concrete project experience is irreplaceable, although it can of course always be supplemented. We go to great lengths to ensure that you are equipped with the theoretical skills needed to deal with even the most demanding clients.


We provide a comprehensive curriculum of training programmes, of course not only during the induction phase, but throughout your whole time at d-fine. Training programmes tailored to meet your current level of experience range from banking seminars, soft skills training and multi-level project management training through to advanced IT and specialist courses in corporate finance.


On top of this you also have the chance to take part in one of our extensive external training programmes that are of particular interest for young professionals without any specific financial knowledge. You can also follow a part-time master's course in Financial Mathematics at Oxford University, which leads to an MSc at the end of two years. Or you might want to consider the internationally very highly respected CFA programme and thus become a Chartered Financial Analyst, including subsequent CFA certification or, once you have gathered more professional experience in general management, you might wish to follow an Executive MBA programme at selected business schools such as the Mannheim Business School or the European Business School


Whichever path you choose, you certainly won't be out of pocket. All costs are covered by d-fine, and you will continue to receive 100% of your salary throughout your course.


The chance to take part in expert congresses and individual courses rounds off our extensive development programme. We ensure that you are given the chance to develop - both professionally and personally.


Participant comments (Masters Programme):

"I particularly enjoyed the diversity among the fellow students and the management experience they brought, as well as the insight into other areas away from IT/the specialist department. There was lots to learn from fellow students themselves, even in terms of day-to-day project work."

"It was a great experience to study in England at one of the most respected universities in the world with all of its academic tradition."

Participant comments (training courses):

"Very good (outstanding) lecturer with an (obviously) large amount of experience."

"The speaker was able to relate a great deal from personal experience and offer valuable practical tips."

"The training was extremely helpful and informative. There were lots of great examples of application. Overall it provided a very good overview of the subject."

"A very practical focus and also a really helpful seminar for day-to-day project work."

"The exchanges and discussion within the group and with the trainer were very informative. An important experience, in particular for participants from a purely academic background, and good preparation for client contact.
