Oxford MSc Financial Economics
The Master's degree for your future
Where theory meets practice
As practical as it is academically rigorous, the MSc in Financial Economics (MFE) gives you the international insight and understanding, the knowledge of financial applications and the real-world skills and tools that leading institutions and companies demand across a breadth of industries.
Two disciplines, one top-ranked degree programme
The MFE is jointly delivered by Saïd Business School finance faculty and the Oxford University Department of Economics. Your 9-month learning experience combines the expertise of two world-class departments and is enriched by input from leading, international financial recruiters.
