Putting theory into practice
Apply the tools and expertise gained in the classroom to real business issues and challenges facing organisations around the globe.
Immerse yourself in topics ranging from regulation to applied risk management, and tackle complex business problems using the skills you’ve developed throughout the programme through a range of different experiences.
Practitioner courses link academic learning from electives and core courses to the challenges of real-life business. The courses are delivered by finance professionals and equip you with insights and practical tools.
They expose you to real world issues, challenges and experiences you will encounter as your career progresses. They cover topics such as Regulation, Public Finance, Applied Risk Management and Derivatives, Advanced Financial Modelling, the Business of Corporate Finance and the Business of Asset Management.
Gain valuable insights as panels of alumni, practitioners and faculty share their experiences and talk about current financial trends and topics. Catch up with fellow alumni in the LBS network and make new connections.
Analyse and resolve complex business problems using the skills, frameworks and tools acquired during the programme. Supervised by a member of faculty, it provides a great opportunity to dive deep into specific topic of interest.
Many students undertake this for the organisation they work for. It’s also a chance to partner with an organisation you would like to work for and expand your network.
Practice the skills you have learnt, and build on your experience and develop your network on an eight to 10 week internship. MiF students have previously interned at organisations such as Goldman Sachs, Credit Suisse, Nomura, Deutsche Bank, HSBC, Citibank, and Bank of America Merrill Lynch.
Internships are only available for full-time students taking the fourth term.
