MSc Finance and Economics

  • Graduate taught
  • Department of Finance
  • Application code LN43
  • Starting 2021
  • UK/EU full-time: Open
  • Overseas full-time: Open
  • Location: Houghton Street, London

The MSc Finance and Economics draws on the School's strengths in economics, finance and econometrics. It is aimed at students who are interested in gaining a deep understanding of the theory and practice of financial markets.

This interdisciplinary degree, taught jointly by the Department of Finance and the Department of Economics, offers exceptional graduates from quantitative disciplines the opportunity to study in two of the most highly rated departments in their subject areas in the world.

As we teach you not only how to apply and use various well-known models, but also to understand the fundamental concepts on which they are based, you will learn how to alter, test and adapt these models in new market environments. In learning what makes the models tick, you will develop an awareness of the assumptions on which they rely, and - increasingly important in today’s markets - of situations in which these assumptions can break down.

As well as developing your understanding of financial economics, financial econometrics, microeconomics and macroeconomics to a high level, you will have the opportunity to investigate two further specialist aspects of finance in elective courses.

The rigour of the Finance and Economics programme is recognised across the world. As the most academically oriented of our programmes, it provides an excellent grounding for students who are interested in progressing to a PhD in finance or in economics.

Successful applicants come from a variety of quantitative backgrounds including economics, mathematics, engineering, statistics, finance and others. To apply, you should have strong credentials in mathematics and a fascination for finance.

Entry requirements

Minimum entry requirements

Undergraduate degree

Upper second class honours (2:1) degree or international equivalent in a quantitative subject such as economics, maths, physics, engineering, or finance. Your training must include at least a year of calculus and a semester of linear algebra. (See international entry requirements)

Admission to this programme is very competitive. In previous years, the majority of students accepted into the programme had obtained 1st class honours degrees or the equivalent.

Even if you meet the minimum entry requirement, this does not guarantee you an offer of admission. 

Quantitative skills

Applicants should have studied at least a year of calculus and a semester of linear algebra. 

Where appropriate, applicants may be offered a fully funded place at the LSE Summer School in order to develop their knowledge of microeconomics and/or econometrics prior to the start of the programme.

GMAT/GRE

GMAT or GRE is required for all applicants without a full three-year UK undergraduate degree. A GRE or GMAT is recommended for applicants with UK undergraduate degrees who did not achieve or are not expected to achieve a first class degree. Test scores must show a strong performance in the quantitative segment.  More about GRE/GMAT

Professional experience

Work experience (either through internships or full employment) is not a pre-requisite; however, applicants who have some professional experience should include this in their application.

English language

You may also have to provide evidence of your English proficiency, although you do not need to provide this at the time of your application to LSE. See our English language requirements


We welcome applications from all prospective students who meet the mininum requirements for this programme.  We seek to recruit students with the very best academic merit, potential and motivation, irrespective of their background. We carefully consider each application on an individual basis, taking into account all the information presented on your application form, including your:

Please note that, while care has been taken to ensure that this information is up to date and correct, a change of circumstances since publication may cause the School to change, suspend or withdraw a course or programme of study, or change the fees that apply to it. The School will always notify the affected parties as early as practicably possible and propose any viable and relevant alternative options. Note that that the School will neither be liable for information that after publication becomes inaccurate or irrelevant, nor for changing, suspending or withdrawing a course or programme of study due to events outside of its control, which includes but is not limited to a lack of demand for a course or programme of study, industrial action, fire, flood or other environmental or physical damage to premises.

You must also note that places are limited on some courses and/or subject to specific entry requirements. The School cannot therefore guarantee you a place. Please note that changes to programmes and courses can sometimes occur after you have accepted your offer of a place. These changes are normally made in light of developments in the discipline or path-breaking research, or on the basis of student feedback. Changes can take the form of altered course content, teaching formats or assessment modes. Any such changes are intended to enhance the student learning experience. You should visit the School’s Calendar, or contact the relevant academic department, for information on the availability and/or content of courses and programmes of study. Certain substantive changes will be listed on the updated graduate course and programme information page.

Teaching and assessment

Teaching 

The format of teaching for MSc Finance and Economics courses varies. Some courses may have two-hour lectures followed by a separate supporting session, others may have three-hour interactive sessions. Teaching sessions can vary in size depending upon the course. Some classes may be taught by Graduate Teaching Assistants. Students on the MSc Finance and Economics programme have on average 11 hours of contact time per week during the teaching terms.

Assessment methods

Examinations: MSc Finance and Economics students have two exams in Week 0 of Lent Term. The Summer Exam Period takes place from late April until early June. The exam timetable changes each year and is published by the school at least six weeks before the start of the exam period.

Summative work: Some Finance courses contain a coursework element which contributes to the final course grade. At LSE this type of coursework is called 'summative assessment'. Different courses set different types of summative work. Some courses require weekly submission of problem sets which all make up a small percentage of the final grade. 

Formative work:At LSE, any work which is set but does not contribute towards the final course mark is known as formative work. The purpose of formative work is to inform students of their progress on the course and whether they are understanding the concepts taught in lectures. Some formative work is informal, via the setting of problems sets that the teacher will work through with the class, however most courses will also ask for a piece of work to be submitted and then graded.

Academic support

All academic faculty schedule weekly office hours in which any student may visit them to discuss academic issues. In some cases students may be able to arrange a time to meet with a member of faculty outside their office hours.

The MSc Finance & Economics Associate Programme Director will also be your Academic Mentor. Her role is to keep an overview of your academic progress and overall wellbeing during your time at the School. In addition, she has extensive experience of the financial services sector, enabling her to provide a high level of careers support.

There are also many opportunities to extend your learning outside the classroom and complement your academic studies at LSE. LSE LIFE is the School’s centre for academic, personal and professional development. Some of the services on offer include:

How to read effectively

Academic writing and critical thinking

Developing leadership skills

Study/work/life balance

Preparing for the world of work

Cross-cultural communication and teamwork

LSE is committed to enabling all students to achieve their full potential and the School’s Disability and Wellbeing Service provides a free, confidential service to all LSE students and is a first point of contact for all disabled students.

Professional Development Programme

Overview

The Department of Finance runs an extensive Professional Development Programme alongside the Academic programme in order to support and prepare students to enter the job market. Starting in the pre-sessional course in August, students are given a wide range of careers support, from CV workshops and application advice to sector overviews and opportunities to meet and network with recent alumni who are working in London.

Enrico-Calabresi 

Enrico Calabresi
Bachelor in Economics and Business, LUISS Guido Carli University

I was looking for a challenging and rigorous Master's programme that would keep both the industry and the PhD doors open. The MSc in Finance & Economics at LSE was the natural choice to me, and it turned out to exceed my already high expectations. The programme fully exploits what makes LSE one of the top universities in the world, namely its reputation for ground-breaking impeccable research and its overly successful job placement record. You have the opportunity to make your profile very attractive to employers and at the same time explore the very foundations of Finance and Economics theory. What’s more, you will meet extraordinary people coming from a variety of different backgrounds and having extremely diverse aspirations for their future.

You should make the most of your time in LSE without stressing too much about finding a job. From the academic faculty to the staff, everybody is genuinely interested in your success in the programme and will guide you through it. Be also open to know your fellow students and make friendships that will last far more than your time in London.

Yavuzhan-Yilanciouglu

Yavuzhan Yilancioglu
Bachelor in Economics and Maths, Bogazici University

The MSc Finance & Economics programme differs from others in its critical approach to financial markets. To get a good grasp of finance, you need to get your hands dirty with mathematics, economics and econometrics. Rather than memorising, you need to derive theories and statistical results by yourself. Only after that you can go beyond the repetition and critically approach your findings.

The progamme has a relatively small class size, which creates a very active and inclusive in-class experience. Learning from the some of the world’s best researchers in finance and being a part of a closely-knit cohort of bright and hardworking students is a great experience. The faculty is highly involved with the programme. For example, most of the problem solution sessions are taught by the faculty members themselves in classes of 10 to 15, which is rarely the case elsewhere. Moreover, the administrative staff does a great job to ensure that we make the most of both the academic environment and the career opportunities at LSE. Thanks to the staff’s efforts, there is a successful feedback mechanism which ensures that students' views are taken into account.

After graduation, I will be working at Oliver Wyman’s Istanbul Office as a consultant in financial services.

 
Sun-Yong-Kim

Sun Yong Kim
Bachelor of Commerce/Bachelor of Economics, University of New South Wales

I saw the programme as the perfect preparation for pursuing a PhD in Finance. Top Finance PhD programs recognise the quality of this training which is why the MSc Finance & Economics programme has a long established history of placing students in the top 10 US Finance PhD programmes.

Having read many of Professor Ian Martin's papers during my undergraduate years, I was most excited to be able to take his FM436 classes, which were truly illuminating and a highlight of the programme. He was also easily accessible outside class to talk about his research as well as general advice for prospective PhD students.

The programme is intense and fast-paced so it is essential to come prepared to work hard from the beginning. There is a rapid learning curve over a short period of time so addressing any academic weaknesses in the critical areas of mathematics, economics and statistics before the start of the programme is important. The F&E programme was not only the most challenging academic experience of my life but also the most humbling. Coming to terms with the fact that I was not the smartest person in the class was difficult at first but helped give me the confidence to ask for help when needed. I would not have gained half as much from the programme had I not collaborated extensively with my classmates both academically and socially.

After graduation, I will commence my Finance PhD at the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University.

 
Sarah-Ridout  

Sarah Ridout
BA Philosophy, Politics and Economics, University of Oxford
Now a PhD Candidate in Economics, Harvard University

I came to the programme straight out of undergrad because I planned to pursue a PhD in economics or finance. Previous professors had told me that the MSc Finance and Economics programme at LSE would provide a good foundation for PhD work (and a good chance of admission if I did well). This turned out to be true.

While at LSE, I was impressed by the commitment of the faculty and administration to help each student get where he or she wanted to be at the end of the year, whether that was a top PhD programme or a good job in industry. I would advise future MSc Finance and Economics students to go to the faculty when they need some guidance about the programme or their future. I received some excellent advice from professors at LSE, who went out of their way to be helpful even to students they had not known for long.

Hendrik Wagenaar 

Hendrik Wagenaar
Bachelor of Science in Economics, University of Mannheim
Now at McKinsey & Company

My undergraduate economics studies and my practical experience in the financial industry shaped my passion for topics in finance and in economics. The possibility to combine these two fascinating fields in my graduate studies attracted me to the MSc Finance and Economics programme at LSE. It is a unique programme in Europe, and perfect for everybody who has a deep interest in both areas.

The F&E programme is challenging and rewarding. I was impressed how the programme manages to prepare the students for so many different careers. The gained knowledge and the broad set of skills allow students to pursue careers in academia, the public and the private sector. In my case, the department gave me all the support I needed to land a consulting job next to my studies.

My advice to future students is to be curious about all the opportunities this programme offers. Make use of the great resources at the university and if you encounter a problem of any kind, there is always somebody to help.
