Course Summary

The MSc in Financial Economics (MFE) is a full-time, nine-month programme that provides outstanding training in the tools of financial economics sought by financial institutions, companies and public organisations. The course combines a rigorous academic core with tailored practical applications, designed in consultation with leading financial recruiters.

The MFE is delivered through the University of Oxford’s Saïd Business School and is run jointly by the Saïd Business School's finance faculty and the University's Department of Economics. This means that, unlike more conventional graduate courses, the programme features interactive classes, use of case studies, practitioner teaching, and proactive careers support. Throughout the programme, teaching stresses the links between theories in financial economics and key finance activities. Topics are chosen in the economics courses for their relevance to finance. The MFE has been designed in close consultation with a panel of advisers from leading financial institutions. This panel has helped ensure that the choice and content of courses match the needs of employers. The panel continues to play an important role on the MFE, providing up-to-date practitioner advice on course content, supplying adjunct faculty and representing major recruiters.

Careers advisors specialise in all major sectors, including finance, consulting, social impact and diversified industries. It supports students seeking a traditional business career and those taking a non-traditional path in a variety of destinations around the world. Ultimately, what you will gain from your MFE at Oxford depends on your goals, ambitions and previous experiences as well. The Career Development Centre is there to help and offer guidance, support and inspiration every step of the way.
