Our Masters in Financial Analysis (MFA) programme is aimed at ambitious graduates who want to launch a career in finance. Leading academics and business experts provide you with key insights into finance, accounting and economics.

The programme provides you with a truly global view of finance and the in-depth knowledge and skills to succeed in this challenging industry.


Our longstanding MBA programme is consistently ranked as one of the world’s best. Whether changing industry, moving up the ranks in your organisation or excelling as an entrepreneur, this programme will help you reach the next stage of your career. A vast alumni network and focused career guidance are just two reasons why 93% of our MBA students accept an offer of employment within three months of graduation, with a mean salary of £76,127 (2015).

The Executive MBA (EMBA) and EMBA Global (EMBAG) programmes, in conjunction with Columbia Business School and The University of Hong Kong, feature in our portfolio of Leadership programmes for mid- and senior-level, high-calibre professionals.

You’ll gain the business knowledge, leadership skills and networks to accelerate your career when taking the EMBA in London or Dubai. Our EMBAG programme takes that development further by immersing you in two world-class cities: New York and London.
