The MSc Finance (part-time) programme provides a unique opportunity to pursue a world-leading MSc Finance degree alongside a full-time career. It is designed for professionals working in London who aspire to high-powered careers in finance and who wish to acquire a more in-depth and academically rigorous knowledge of the subject. The programme is specifically tailored to meet the needs and demands of part-time students in employment, not only in terms of academic content but also in terms of the structure and timing of teaching and the support provided for students throughout the programme.
The academic structure and content in this programme is identical to the full-time MSc Finance programme, only differing in the mode of teaching, which is delivered through evening sessions. Being only a short journey form the City and Canary Wharf, LSE is ideally located for professionals to commute to and from the office for lectures, to study with their classmates or attend events and public lectures.
As the vast majority of MSc Finance (part-time) students are already working in finance (or in a related role) when they join the programme, each individual’s future direction upon graduation depends on their own aspirations and career experience. However, whatever their reason for pursuing the programme, whether it be to help fast-track their professional development, change trajectory or simply gain more knowledge in relation to their current role, the programme aims to equip students with the knowledge and skills to succeed in, and enhance, their career.
This programme is not a suitable preparation for the PhD Finance at LSE (see MSc Finance and Economics).

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.
A 2:1 or overseas equivalent in any discipline with good quantitative skills. Two to five years of relevant work experience will be considered a strong advantage. A GMAT or GRE score is an advantage but is not compulsory. English standard level
