Two formats – one programme

Our Masters in Finance programme is structured to give you the flexibility to learn in a way that works for you.


Whichever format you choose, you gain the same global content, access to world-class faculty, elective choices and will be awarded with the same masters degree.

Masters in Finance Full-time: 10 or 16 months

An intensive learning experience designed for those who wish to take a career break to attend daytime classes. Immerse yourself fully in the world of finance and surround yourself with a class of highly ambitious people, from diverse industries and cultures.

Choosing the full-time programme gives you the chance to carry out an optional fourth term, where you can undertake an international exchange, an independent business project, complete more electives, or take on a summer internship. You can choose whether to do the fourth term or not once you are on the programme.


Masters in Finance Part-time: 18 or 22 months

This flexible but demanding format is specifically designed to allow you to continue working while you complete your degree. Our part-time students are an international group with distinctive business experiences and cultural perspectives that they share with their peers. The bonds forged between classmates at LBS last a lifetime.

In the first year, classes take place on Friday evenings and Saturday, every other weekend. In the second year, electives run in various formats, giving you the option to choose the courses and schedule that best suit you.

Compare the two flexible formats and see which one works for you.
