The MSc Finance (full-time) programme is one of the world’s leading generalist finance master's degrees. Predominantly aimed at pre-experience students, the programme has been designed to meet the needs of high-level graduates from fields not specifically related to finance, whose career objectives lie broadly within the financial services sector. The programme benefits from teaching by the Department’s leading faculty in a range of innovative and cutting edge courses.
You will gain an in-depth grounding with core courses in corporate finance and financial markets, before tailoring the degree to your goals with a range of elective courses, including a number of specifically designed applied courses. You will have the opportunity to gain deeper practical insight and links to the City, and will benefit from close interaction with LSE's Financial Markets Group, which attracts leading international finance researchers to present at its many academic research seminars and practitioner conferences.
The programme enjoys an excellent reputation amongst employers, with alumni now working in a diversity of institutions including leading investment banks, financial institutions, consultancies and boutique firms.
Many of our graduates look to join Analyst programmes at major investment banks. Other students have joined consultancies, boutique firms, hedge funds, asset management firms, start-ups or have gone on to further study. 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.
