The MPhil in Finance is an intensive nine-month programme combining advanced study and research for those with less than one year of work experience.

The MPhil in Finance programme consists of:

Depending on your course choices, you will share some of your classes with other students on the MPhil in Economics, the Master of Finance, the MPhil in Statistical Science, or Part III of the Maths Tripos.

The online pre-course in mathematical and statistical methods takes place in September before the academic year begins in October. The pre-course is mandatory; those who do not take it will not be admitted to the MPhil in Finance programme. The details about the pre-course will be confirmed in your offer letter.

Assessment

Assessment is by written examination, project, or coursework, depending upon the nature of the particular course. Each course carries the same weighting towards the final mark. 

Dissertation option

It may be possible for students to offer a dissertation in place of three taught elective modules. This is subject to the approval of the Programme Director and the Head of the Finance & Accounting Subject Group, and the availability of a supervisor. Students interested in continuing to the School’s PhD programme (either at the end of the MPhil or after a gap year) are strongly encouraged to take taught modules only, and may only take the dissertation option if they have had sufficient prior research training.
