Course summary

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. The programme attracts working professionals who either already hold, or aspire to, high-powered careers in finance and who wish to acquire a more in-depth and academically rigorous knowledge of the subject.

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.

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 from 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.

Teaching and learning

MSc Finance courses are taught in a single three hour lecture in the evening with a dinner break in between. Usually each course has 10 lectures in one term. The teaching allows the study of core theoretical concepts, whilst also allowing students to gain a practical understanding of the application of these concepts. The majority of courses use case studies and practical homework problems to underpin the theory studied. Classroom discussions are key part of the learning. Some optional courses require working in a group.

Careers

Graduate destinations

The vast majority of MSc Finance (part-time) students are already working in finance related roles at the time of joining the programme. As such, each individual’s future direction upon graduation depends on their own aspirations and career experience. Previous graduates of the programme have gone on to take on new roles within the sector or change their trajectory entirely from a non-finance related role.

Whatever your reason for pursuing the programme, whether to help fast-track your professional development, change trajectory, or simply gain more knowledge in relation to your current role, the programme aims to equip you with the knowledge and skills to succeed in, and enhance, your career.
