The MPhil in Finance is a nine-month masters degree, ideal for those intending to continue to a PhD. While not designed as a vocational programme, it also provides a strong academic background for a career in finance.

Now in its 31st year, it’s the oldest masters degree in finance available at the University of Cambridge. You’ll get the chance to study with three world-class faculties at a university which has produced more Nobel Prize winners than anywhere else.

The programme is taught by staff from:

  • Cambridge Judge Business School, one of the top business schools in Europe
  • The Faculty of Economics, the cradle of modern economics
  • The Faculty of Mathematics, whose ancestry goes back to Isaac Newton

Who is the programme for?

This pre-experience course is designed for those with no more than one year of work experience after their first degree.

Finance professionals with at least two years’ experience might be interested in our post-experience Master of Finance degree.

For those continuing to the PhD, admissions are handled during your MPhil year. This is subject to your performance on the programme and the availability of a suitable supervisor.
