University of Cambridge Master in Finance (MFin)

If anyone is interested in the Cambridge MFin (which is the course designed for people with 2 years or more of finance experience) and will be in New York the week of December 6th, the director of admissions will be in town giving a talk about the program. This is a good way to find out more and ask any questions that you have.

I went through the course last year so if you have any additional questions you can put them through to me.

I think that both are excellent programs that offer slightly different things. I can only speak for Cambridge which enables you to be in a University setting (with students from history, maths, and sciences) while studying finance. Some of my friends weren't even in the business school. I kind of enjoyed spending time with people who were studying different things.

Recruiting is good in Cambridge, especially for Europe and Asia. I came back to the States and found work that I am happy with. It all depends on your motivations.

The professors are from all over the world. I had teachers that came from the US to teach for two weeks, and of course a larger draw came from Europe.

Overall, I'd recommend the Cambridge program. It's a pretty unique addition to your resume and you would have a great time traveling around Europe during your school breaks.

Send me a message if you have specific questions.

I am not familiar with the Cass program. I believe the LSE doesn't have a work requirement and Cambridge does. Although, the MPhil in Finance at Cambridge is similar to LSE's.

There is a good program overview page on the Cambridge website that shows the different courses available.
