A nine-month top ranked Masters in Finance

The Oxford MSc Financial Economics (MFE) is a full-time nine-month programme that will provide you with outstanding training in the tools of financial economics sought by many financial institutions, companies, and public organisations. It combines a rigorous academic core with tailored practical applications, designed in consultation with leading financial recruiters. The programme is for individuals who are interested in careers in investment banking, asset management, private equity, and management consultancy. 

The programme is run jointly by Saïd Business School’s finance faculty and the University’s Department of Economics. The finance faculty at Saïd Business School is one of the fastest growing and most prestigious in Europe and they work closely alongside the most diverse and well-known groups of economists in the world.

This unique programme is delivered through Oxford Saïd which means that, unlike other graduate courses, it features interactive classes, use of case studies, practitioner teaching, and proactive careers support. The programme is currently ranked eleventh in the world and second in the UK by the FT ranking for Masters in Finance 2016.

The programme combines:

  • Pre-course training to become familiar with key concepts and techniques
  • Three days of training in 'financial markets and institutions' which takes place in a key international financial centre such as Oxford/London, New York, or Hong Kong
  • Four core courses in asset pricing, economics, corporate finance and financial econometrics

  • Five electives from a wide range of modules that develop individual skills and specialisations.

  • The opportunity to apply to take part in the Oxford Saïd Finance Laba series of practical workshops on financial modelling and real-world case studies
