London Business School Launches a Masters in Financial Analysis

New program designed for students with less than one year of work experience

London Business School has announced the launch of a Masters in Finance program aimed at early-career students.

Over 12 months, LBS' new "Masters in Financial Analysis" will cover topics in finance, accounting, and economics; it will also include a global immersion field trip. (Potentially similar to the immersion week in the school's Master in Management program: in this program, students participate in a week-long trip to places like Silicon Valley, Shanghai, Milan, Munich, and Paris).

According to LBS, the Masters in Financial Analysis' curriculum is based on six fundamental "pillars" of finance: Corporate Finance, Asset Management, Accounting, Financial Markets, Financial Econometrics, and Global Markets and World Economy. However, in terms of specific classes, no details are yet available.

According to Leila Guerra, the executive director of early-career programs at LBS, “London Business School’s new Masters in Financial Analysis is an exciting addition to our portfolio."

"We’re confident that the combination of a sophisticated curriculum, the development of the right skills and exposure to London, one of the finance capitals in the world, will ensure students are market-ready on graduation and infinitely employable.”

The program is designed for those at the early stages of their careers. It's aimed at top graduates (with at least a 2:1 degree, or its equivalent), whose degrees are in quantitative backgrounds such as accounting, economics, engineering, physics, math, or computer science.

The program, unlike the school's Masters in Finance, does not require work experience; it's aimed at those who have less than one year of work experience.

Today, LBS' Masters in Finance was, for the fifth year in a row, ranked as the top post-experience Masters in Finance program in the world by The Financial Times.

Students looking for a pre-experience Master in Finance in the city of London have no shortage of options. Imperial College Business School, the University of London (Queen Mary), and Cass Business School all offer FT-ranked MiF programs.

LBS' new Masters in Financial Analysis is set to launch in the fall of 2016. The tuition will be £31,000
