LSE is pleased to offer the Antoine Faure-Grimaud MSc Scholarships in the Department of Finance. The scholarships will be offered to an applicant studying either MSc Finance (Full Time) or MSc Finance and Private Equity.
The MSc Finance (full-time) programme is one of the world’s leading generalist finance master's degrees, ideal for those whose career objectives lie broadly within the financial services sector.
The programme offers high level graduates, whose backgrounds may not necessarily be in finance, a unique opportunity to gain a comprehensive foundation and subsequent depth in the field. One of the most sought after degrees at LSE, the programme attracts some of the very best students from leading institutions from around the world.
You will gain an in-depth grounding with core courses in corporate finance and financial markets, before tailoring the degree to your goals with a range of optional courses, including a number of specifically designed applied courses. You will have the opportunity to gain deeper practical insight and links to the City, and will benefit from close interaction with LSE's Financial Markets Group and the Systemic Risk Centre, which attract leading finance researchers from across the world to their numerous research seminars and conferences. You will also have the opportunity to meet and network with the MSc Finance (part-time) students throughout the year.
The programme enjoys an excellent reputation amongst employers, with alumni working in a range of organisations including leading investment banks, financial institutions, consultancies and boutique firms.
The MSc in Finance and Private Equity is ideal for those seeking a generalist finance master’s with an integrated specialisation in private equity. This unique programme offers unparalleled access to leading private equity researchers and practitioners who actively participate in the development of the field.
The programme is built upon the highly successful MSc Finance (full-time) programme, with the addition of a dedicated course taught by the Programme Director of MSc Finance and Private Equity. You will focus on topics including the structure of private equity (PE) funds and how PE can be used in start-ups, in scaling-up cash flow businesses, and in restructuring firms facing financial distress.
As well as lectures, discussion and case studies, you will benefit from regular practitioner-led teaching. You will have the opportunity to gain deeper practical insight and links to the City, and will enjoy close interaction with LSE's Financial Markets Group and the Systemic Risk Centre, which attract leading finance researchers from across the world to their numerous research seminars and conferences.
