The Masters in Finance gives you a thorough and focused training in finance. Choose the Masters in Finance if you're interested in: Advancing your career in finance; changing your role within the finance area, or; deepening your existing financial knowledge. The MBA gives you thorough training in general management. Choose the MBA if you're interested in: building a career in general management; studying specialist subjects like organisational behaviour, operations management and marketing; studying finance as part of a broader degree.
This is not a common route for our MiF graduates, as the course is applied and practical - and aimed at finance practitioners. However we have known candidates that have followed a career in academic research.
We can only process one application for one programme per candidate at any one time. If you apply for two programmes you will be asked which one you prefer. The preferred application will proceed and your second choice will be placed on hold. If your preferred application is unsuccessful, your second choice application will be reactivated. If you are shortlisted for interview the interviewer will be happy to discuss your programme choices.
No. You can choose to do a general Masters in Finance but still tailor the programme to your interests and goals through electives of your choice. Concentrations allow you to focus your academic and practical learning in a specific area, helping you to progress as a specialist in that area.
Work experience should be in finance or a closely related field (such as corporate law, finance journalism or IT in a financial institution). You will need to have experienced enough financial transactions to be able to contribute to cases discussed in class. Applicants working in IT will need to show significant exposure to finance-related products.
The MiF is an excellent choice for people wanting to switch areas within finance or to expand and deepen their finance knowledge. This programme is not designed for people without prior finance experience who are looking for a career change into finance (for this, we recommend a general management programme like our MBA).
Yes. If you are shortlisted or offered a place on MiF, we will happily connect you with one of our alumni so you can learn about their programme experiences.
