What are the requirements for entry into the programme?
View the minimum requirements for entry to the MPhil in Finance. The MPhil is a full-time, nine month programme and requires the completion of any current training or education programme or release from your current institution for the duration of your study.
Is there an application fee?
There is an application charge of £50 for online applications and £100 for paper applications. For further details please visit the Graduate Admissions website.
Do you require work experience?
We do not require work experience; the MPhil in Finance is a pre-experience programme designed for those with no more than one year of work experience after their first degree. For finance professionals with a minimum of two years work experience who wish to develop their career in finance, we offer a post-experience Master of Finance.
Do you require a GRE/GMAT score as part of the application process?
Applicants are encouraged to take the GRE. Although this is not a formal requirement, for applicants from universities which may not be well known to members of the admissions committee, a strong GRE test result may well make a difference.
- GRE (Graduate Record Examination)
Cambridge Judge Business School's institution code for GRE is 7020.
When a GRE score is submitted, a minimum score of 780 in the quantitative section is expected.
I have more than one year of work experience but want to continue to a PhD. Can I be considered for the MPhil in Finance?
Yes, but you will be considered only if you include a 1,500-word research proposal at the time of application. The research proposal is intended to demonstrate your ability to pursue a research-oriented academic career. It should identify the key research questions, review the relevant academic literature in the area, and highlight the expected contribution to knowledge. Those with PhD aspirations who have less than one year of work experience should include a 500-word research proposal when they apply for admission to the MPhil in Finance. No research proposal is required from students who do not expect to continue to a PhD after the MPhil.
