We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
The MSc Finance (part-time) programme provides a unique opportunity to pursue a graduate degree at a world-leading institution alongside a full-time career.

As the LSE's longest running Executive Master's degree, the programme is specifically tailored to meet the requirements of part-time students in employment with regard to: academic content, structure and timing of teaching, and the academic, pastoral and careers support provided for students throughout the programme.

After finishing my first master's degree in business administration and starting my first full-time job after university I was very interested to broaden my knowledge and complement my business administration knowledge with studying finance. Choosing this particular programme at LSE was then due to the perfectly tailored content, in regard to my needs, and the world class reputation of LSE, providing the opportunity to learn from world-class teachers and lecturers. The teachers are highly capable of transferring their cutting edge know how and there is great balance between theory and practical application (eg case studies) of the topics we cover. The programme has great practical usefulness and attracts a broad and very interesting variety of people. Through my studies I have developed in different areas: in the knowledge I gained in corporate finance and asset markets; enhanced career opportunities and the opportunity to learn from and meet so many great people. I have also had the opportunity to start something called "LSE Round Table Forum", which was great fun, and have been challenged to manage my time and prioritise in a way never faced before, as I had to combine a full-time job, and very interesting but also time demanding studies, besides some social life! Once I complete my studies, I am looking forward to developing into the field of corporate finance and applied financial valuation.
I have long aspired to be a student at LSE, which is a truly outstanding academic institution. It equips students with knowledge, skills and importantly – also the mindset, necessary to succeed in today's turbulent times and the tough job market. Moreover, its urban location in the heart of Europe's capital makes it unique, offering the vibrant lifestyle of a Londoner, exceptional links with employers and a truly multi-cultural perspective. The blend of knowledge, experiences, relationships and career opportunities I have gained during my programme have made me realise - nothing is impossible.
I would like to thank everyone at Deutsche Bank and LSE who made possible this scholarship, which now also includes a mentorship scheme and internship opportunities. I think it is a truly exceptional initiative, which hopefully, will continue to exist and have a tremendous impact in the coming years.
