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. Just go to the Meet Us section to find out details.

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.
