The programme is aimed at people with good undergraduate degrees and good quantitative skills. Submission of GRE or GMAT test results is an advantage but not a requirement. The mathematics used in the programme includes basic calculus and statistics. Some knowledge of economics is required, but this could have been acquired professionally. A good mastery of English is required as demonstrated by a TOEFL score of at least 603 (250 in the computer based test) or an IELTS score of at least 6.5. Two to five years of relevant work experience will be considered an advantage.

The programme will be taught in the evenings, with students being required to attend two evenings per week during two 10-week terms (Michaelmas and Lent) per year. The 10-week Summer term is devoted to review classes, study and examinations. Prior to their first year, some students will be required, and all students will be encouraged, to attend a two-week pre-sessional September course to bring them up to speed on quantitative methods.

This programme is based in the Department of Finance and offers the following benefits:

* LSE's first and only part-time evening programme, designed specifically to meet the needs of professionals working in or around London who are thinking about moving into or acquiring further in depth expertise in the area of finance.
* Study in one of the most highly rated departments in the subject area in the world, both for its research and its institutional links. Each year LSE's Financial Markets Group attracts some of the leading international finance researchers who present at one of its many academic research seminars or conferences, which students are welcome to attend.
* The programme's balance in emphasis on both theory as well as case study based teaching enables the students to draw upon the expertise of the Department's internationally renowned academics who are leaders in their fields, thus providing both a professionally driven and academically rigorous programme.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.

The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.
