The Department of Finance

On the BSc Finance, we have access to faculty who are second to none in terms of their reputation and academic prowess. The Department also values personal growth and offers one of a kind workshops, speaker events and challenges. On the programme, we’re a small group of 30 students: it feels like a family to me and our truly collaborative culture helps us all to make the most of our time at LSE.
