Why study a master’s degree in finance at Cambridge?

[MUSIC PLAYING] For over 800 years, the most dynamic minds have gathered at Cambridge University, crafting ideas that have changed the world. The university’s Masters of Finance (MFin) programme at the Cambridge Judge Business School offers finance professionals with at least two years experience, the chance to step into the highest spheres of the global marketplace.

Entering the MFin programme means being mentored by men and women at the cutting edge of financial theory and practise. In proximity to London’s financial district, the programme fosters connections between students and top finance organisations. Industry leaders present regular lectures. And networking dinners allow face-to-face time with them, opening doors to the companies they represent.

The Centre for Alternative Finance generates cutting edge strategies. And the Newton Centre for Endowment Asset Management projects new possibilities in long-term investment. The Centre for Risk Studies forecasts unseen trends in an ever-changing market. And access to Cambridge’s world renowned department brings depth and breadth to finance as a discipline.

University life itself provides a vital component to success. Students live in one of 31 prestigious Colleges, making them a part of the traditions that have grounded Cambridge for centuries and facilitating vital connections across the globe. In 2016, the Cambridge MFin was ranked number one by the Financial Times. Career progress, placement success, value for money, international mobility, and relevance all contributed to the win.

Over 400 graduates have passed through our doors, each armed with a key to a renewed career success. The Cambridge MFin is fast being recognised as the signature Masters of Finance course across the globe. Make your application today.

The University of Cambridge provides an unforgettable setting for the MFin. While receiving world class teaching at the Business School, the University and constituent Colleges add a totally unique experience which cannot be found on other post-experience finance courses. You can earn a Cambridge Blue in one of the university’s sports teams, join a College choir and sing in 900 year old churches, or join one of the hundreds of other clubs on offer. There are regular formals where students wear gowns and say grace in Latin, and of course the famous May Balls which end the year in style. The programme is brilliant, and its ranking speaks for itself, but it is the university life which makes this programme special.
