Masters of the Universe - London Business School

Contemplating a Master’s degree?  I can sympathise – I have been uncomfortably placed on the horns of that particular dilemma myself.  In the end, I decided to take the plunge and I’m very glad I did.

I strongly believe that my Master’s degree made a huge difference to me.  Although I decided within the first semester of being an undergraduate that an LL.M was something I’d like very much, the twists and turns of my law degree (which included participating in ERASMUS for a year) meant I very nearly didn’t get chance to fulfil my LL.M desire.  Thankfully, when it mattered, the stars aligned themselves correctly and everything came good.

I don’t think it was a total coincidence that on completing my Master’s, I walked into the very first job I applied for.  I had barely submitted my dissertation when I had snagged an opportunity I thought was too good to be true. I’ve a lot to be thankful for.

Whether you’re a contemplating a change of direction or want to supplement your knowledge or increase your employability, a Master’s at the London Business School may be the perfect solution.

The London Business School (LBS) is currently ranked number 1 in the world by the Financial Times for its post-experience Masters in Finance programme (and, come on, that’s really quite something!!).

The Masters in Finance degree was launched by LBS in 1993 and quickly become synonymous with academic excellence.

Its students are taught by the School’s world-leading finance academics – including Professors Stephen Schaefer, Julian Franks, Ian Cooper and Suleyman Basak – many of whom act as consultants to financial institutions, industry and government, and hold directorships in a wide range of organisations.

The School is conveniently based in the global financial centre of London, and works closely with organisations such as Credit Suisse, Deloitte, Deutsche Bank, Goldman Sachs, Standard Chartered and UBS.  All such organisations have recently recruited from the School’s talented pool of Masters in Finance graduates.

The Masters in Finance course is available as a full-time one year programme, or as a part-time programme running on weekends over the course of two years.

The School’s students are supported by a Career Services team based in London who act as a guiding hand and enhance their graduates’ job prospects and earning potential.

  1. I am thinking of doing a Masters myself (providing that I graduate first of course!). Do you know any schools in the UK that offer an LL.M with a semester abroad (like Erasmus)?

  2. Interesting question! :-) None jumped to mind but with a little help from my trusty friend, Google, it seems that the university of Kent offer one -

    I'm sure they can't be the only one...
