MSc Finance (Part-time)

About the MSc programme

The MSc Finance (part-time) programme provides a unique opportunity to pursue a world-leading MSc Finance degree alongside a full-time career. It is designed for professionals working in London who aspire to high-powered careers in finance and who wish to acquire a more in-depth and academically rigorous knowledge of the subject. The programme is specifically tailored to meet the needs and demands of part-time students in employment, not only in terms of academic content but also in terms of the structure and timing of teaching and the support provided for students throughout the programme.

The academic structure and content in this programme is identical to the full-time MSc Finance programme, only differing in the mode of teaching, which is delivered through evening sessions. Being only a short journey form the City and Canary Wharf, LSE is ideally located for professionals to commute to and from the office for lectures, to study with their classmates or attend events and public lectures.

Graduate destinations

As the vast majority of MSc Finance (part-time) students are already working in finance (or in a related role) when they join the programme, each individual’s future direction upon graduation depends on their own aspirations and career experience. However, whatever their reason for pursuing the programme, whether it be to help fast-track their professional development, change trajectory or simply gain more knowledge in relation to their current role, the programme aims to equip students with the knowledge and skills to succeed in, and enhance, their career.

This programme is not intended as suitable preparation for the PhD Finance at LSE (if you are interested in PhD study, please see MSc Finance and Economics).
