LBS logo London experience. World impact.

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.

Full-time Masters in Finance: 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 essentials 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 additional fourth term, where you can undertake an international exchange, an independent project, or complete more electives.


Part-time Masters in Finance: 22 months

This flexible but demanding format is specifically designed to allow you to continue to work while you complete your degree. Our part-time students come from a variety of countries, often commuting from Europe.


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


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