Career service overview
The Cambridge Master of Finance (MFin) programme was ranked second in the Financial Times 2020 ranking of post-experience master of finance courses worldwide. The strength of our career outcomes has been a key contributing factor to our position in the rankings, with careers service ranking first among post-experience master of finance courses globally, and a career outcome of over 89 per cent placement success on average (three months out) over the last three years despite the challenging job markets in financial services.
Below are some of the career metrics where the Cambridge MFin scored highly:
- Average salary increase of 74 per cent.
- Average salary of $136,080(USD).
- Ninety one per cent employed three months out.
- Aims achieved with 86 per cent of our responding alumni saying they fulfilled their goals or reasons for doing a masters.
The above data was taken from the Financial Times 2020 rankings of Master of Finance programmes which measured career outcomes of graduates within three years of completing studies.
Additionally, the Cambridge MFin has a number of ties to the finance industry. This is clearly exhibited in the rich portfolio of corporate sponsored projects our students undertake every year and the broad range of senior city speakers we bring in on campus every week to share their professional insights with the class.

- At least a high UK 2:1 or equivalent, although a First Class degree is strongly preferred.
- If you studied your undergraduate degree overseas, you can check whether you meet the University’s minimum requirement. Please note that the University’s minimum requirement equates to a standard 2:1, whereas we require a high 2:1 for admission to the MFin. Therefore, the grades required for the MFin are likely to be higher than the minimum 2:1 equivalent stated on the University’s website. For example, we would require applicants who have studied in the USA to have a minimum GPA of 3.6/4.0.
