In the tenth year of the Cambridge Master of Finance Programme, we look at the top ten reasons why finance professionals should choose our leading programme…

MFin programme students
  1. Learn alongside like-minded professionals
    The Cambridge Master of Finance programme is for experts already in the field. You will learn alongside like-minded professionals enabling even more great networking opportunities and links into whichever areas of finance you hope to get into.
  2. We are a one-year, full-time programme
    The Cambridge MFin is a uniquely designed one-year, full time programme. It has been designed to ensure that learning and practical experience are combined hand in hand to equip you with all the knowledge and skills you need to excel in your financial career.
  3. Combine networking and learning
    During the MFin programme, our students meet and work alongside practitioners at the cutting edge of financial practice. The programme harbours close connections with finance experts from across the world, with opportunities like our City Speaker Series. Our students are taught modules covering various aspects of finance which are delivered by the world-leading finance experts who form part of the Cambridge Judge Business School’s teaching faculty.
  4. An established alumni network
    We have nearly 500 graduates in our alumni network, from across all sectors of the finance industry. As an MFin student, you will have opportunities to meet and learn from MFin alumni and attend our annual alumni events when you become an alum yourself. You can contact some of our alumni via the website.
  5. We are a world ranking programme
    We are ranked as one of the top two global post-experience Master of Finance programmes in the Financial Times’ rankings (2017). The ranking is based on various factors including our post-MFin placement success, value for money, career progress, international mobility and relevance.
  6. Our friendly and professional programme team
    We offer professional advice and support to guide our students through the application and enrolment process. The MFin’s experienced programme team is always on hand to make our student experience seamless. Keep up to date on all our upcoming events with our our events calendar.
  7. A global programme
    In 2018, we welcomed our biggest class yet with 81 students from 31 different countries adding to our vast network of former students. We have held programme information sessions in a wide range of geographies including Mumbai, Johannesburg and New York. Our wide-reaching business network has helped around 33 per cent of MFin graduates to shift geographies after graduation.
  8. Work with big names whilst you study
    A core component of the programme is the Group Consulting Project (GCP). This gives students direct contact with practitioner clients and the opportunity to apply what you’ve learnt to real world situations. The GCP can put you in touch with big companies and well-known industry names. Find out more about MFin projects on the website.
  9. We are ten years old
    The Cambridge MFin has now successfully run for 10 years. On average, around 95 per cent of students were employed or in further study three months after completing the MFin.
  10. We’re part of one of the world’s best Universities
    The MFin is one of many world-ranking programmes taught at Cambridge Judge Business School (CJBS). CJBS is part of the University of Cambridge which means that as an MFin student, you will be a member of one of the most highly regarded universities in the world.
