Posts about Business, Economics, and Finance
I've been looking into two masters programs:
1.) MSc Finance in Sustainable Finance
2.) MSc International Business and Economics in Sustainable Finance and Investments
Wondering what your opinions are on the better route to take? The MSc Fin looks to be focused on general finance topics before relating it to sustainable finance. The MSc Ibus looks to teach the finance topics alongside sustainable finance ideas, as well as two courses in economics.
I got my Bachelor degree in Finance and I want to shape my career in Sustainable Finance. I love finance but don't necessarily see myself crunching numbers at a desk the rest of my life as an analyst. My instinct is that the MSc Fin would provide a stronger background moving forward and kickstarting my career.
As for prestige of the schools, the MSc Fin is ranked higher in business, while the MSc Ibus is ranked higher overall. Further, the location of the MSc Ibus is more attractive to me than the MSc Fin... How much weight does the degree title and prestige carry?
Any Thoughts? Thanks :)

A thought occurred to me while taking my business and finance exam. Why exactly am I studying a bachelors in economics?
About an hour ago, I finished my business and finance exam. In this course, the main takeaway was how much to value a firm, profitability of taking on a project, and learning about prices of the firm on the stock market (through EPS, book value, etc.). While taking the exam, a thought occurred to me.
Why exactly am I studying this?
To be exact, why exactly am I studying how to value a firm, and how the valuation of a firm affects it's stock market price and dividends, when the top 0.1% can simply manipulate the value of a firm's stock?
What would be the point of saying that a medical firm on the verge of releasing some cure for cancer and showing great financial accounts is doing extremely well, just for HFs to come and short the shit out of its stock into bankruptcy?
What would be the point of working for a company that is small but having great results but on the other hand, a HF putting artificial buying pressure on a much bigger company with not so great results?
For the rest of my life, I can guarantee the answer to every question I have will be somewhere along the lines of power and greed.
What I have learned in my bachelors degree so far is that without manipulation, things that are happening right now, should be happening differently. And it is sad to see that the majority of my classmates are unaware of this. Studying this degree only seems to actually prove useful in a non-existent society where the ultra wealthy do not take advantage of the systems made for society. This is why we need a market reset. To bring everyone as close to the same level as possible. And to finally make the world aware of how much fuckery has been going on since the start of time.
Thanks for coming to my TED talk.
I am crap with economics/finance and trying to see if FIRE is feasible for me. Is there anywhere I can find someone to explain how to invest like they're talking to a 5-year-old?
I'm 32, single, earn a good salary (~€90k), 1 year into a 35-year mortgage on which I'm overpaying 10% to get it down to 30 years. Maxing out my pension contributions (20%) and have about ~€70k in my pension to date. Very little savings currently, so that's my short-term goal to build up. No idea how to plan for retirement or how to invest, and I'm even nervous about my pension given how many times the arse has fallen out of the economy in my life to date. I've read some posts on this sub and get bamboozled by the acronyms and % rates. I want to be smart with my money but I honestly have no idea where to start.
Total finance noob, interested in investing my savings in ETFs. My ex-economics teacher Dad isn't so sure. What do you guys think? (not asking for personal advice about what I should specifically do, interested in opinions on what my Dad said)
I've got about $50,000 in a savings account which I want to finally start investing. After doing a little bit of reading I think I'd like to split it evenly between two ETFs, most likely VAS and VGS.
I'm still very new to all this and have no idea what I'm doing, so before jumping in I thought I should ask my Dad for advice. He's a retired economics teacher and has been telling me I should invest my savings for years, so it would have felt wrong to pull the trigger without consulting him. I sent him some articles about the benefits of ETFs as well as links to the VAS and VGS pages on the Vanguard website.
He sent me an email, saying he wanted to do further research, but that he was "a bit dubious". His thoughts were:
No Hedging - subject to exchange rate movement
Capital Gains Tax is lower
Diversification yes, but is excluded from all mid-cap stock movements, in a sense, less diversification
Dividend yield is lower
Lack of institutional interest a concern
Low fees, low returns
What do you guys think of this?
Edit: Thank you so much for all the detailed responses everyone, I really appreciate it! I will respond properly tomorrow.
