Who is the GGSB MSc in Finance for?

Students who apply for the GGSB MSc Finance aspire to boost their existing careers in the financial sector, in such areas as investment and commercial banking, asset management, financial services and consulting, or with corporate finance positions within international organisations.

A high level of commitment is required from applicants as this programme is only offered on a full-time basis. Students are required to commit to full-time studies in London during their first year but are given the option to gain work experience or work remotely during their second year, which is dedicated to the Final Management Project.

What will you learn?

The GGSB MSc Finance has three compulsory core modules evaluated by assignment or examination. These are followed by a Capstone Course to prepare you for the Final Management Project.

Once you've completed your core modules you'll research and conduct your Final Management Project, based on a real-world situation. You'll have up to a year to complete your project which may be submitted from anywhere in the world, using LSBF and GGSB's Moodle internet-based learning platform.
