Amsterdam Institute of Finance, or AIF, is a financial training institute for international finance specialists and other professionals based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands where it offers open enrollment training programs. In addition, AIF organizes the Executive Master in Risk Management program in partnership with the New York University Stern School of Business,[1] and runs customized in-company programs in The Netherlands and abroad.[2] AIF has organized programs for clients in Asia, the Middle East, South America, and throughout Europe.[3]
