Course content

The Cambridge MFin is a one-year, full-time post-experience master's degree taught at Cambridge Judge Business School. It provides an academically rigorous and commercially relevant programme, enabling finance professionals to consolidate their existing experience and develop their future careers in finance. The programme has access to a strong network of finance practitioners and institutions to help deliver its goal. The MFin degree also comprises non-financial material which enables students to broaden their experience at Cambridge beyond finance, develop interpersonal skills and engage in various career development workshops.

Aims of the programme:

  • A rigorous and intensive training in finance for students with strong academic qualifications and experience in professional finance
  • Gain a thorough grounding in the core concepts, a deeper understanding of applied finance and the chance to integrate theory and practice.

Students will gain a sound understanding of finance theory, financial products, financial reporting and valuation, etc, derived from a programme of core courses. Students will also acquire detailed understanding of a selection of specialist areas, such as investment management, derivatives and private equity through elective courses and project work.

Post-MFin, a large number of graduates move into experienced hire roles across a wide range of financial sectors and geographies, as well as join financial departments within non-financial organisations. For more information, please go to our Careers Outcome page.
