The success of organisations depends upon their ability to operate in the face of risk. The growing awareness of these problems has meant that risk management is now recognised as requiring special skills central to the functioning of the organisation. The MSc Risk and Finance is an interdisciplinary master's programme designed to provide a comprehensive view of risk perception, management and control as encountered in a wide variety of contexts.
The programme addresses such questions as: What are the appropriate ways to measure and assess risk? How does the organisation of enterprises, governments or markets increase or decrease risk? What are the techniques for risk shifting in markets, firms or societies? The design of the programme will enable you to acquire a broad knowledge of risk management and regulation, and to deepen your competency in a chosen area of specialisation.
The programme is supported by Deutsche Bank, which contributes a high level of involvement via a series of practitioner seminars which run throughout the programme.
The programme equips students for career opportunities in: consulting, finance and banking, insurance, management, regulation and supervision, public administration. This programme is not intended as suitable preparation for the PhD Finance at LSE (if you are interested in PhD study, please see MSc Finance and Economics).

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.
