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

About

This unique programme is delivered through Oxford Saïd which means that, unlike other graduate courses, it features interactive classes, use of case studies, practitioner teaching, and proactive careers support. The programme is currently ranked eleventh in the world and first in the UK by the FT ranking for Masters in Finance 2016.

Programme Structure

Throughout the programme we stress the links between financial economics theories 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.
