Imperial College London

I don’t talk enough about UK and European Master in Finance programs so this is my attempt at correcting this deficiency. Imperial College London is one of the top MSF programs across the pond. In the UK (and in Europe) the Masters in Finance is much more well known as it is the main graduate program in business (similar to the MBA’s standing in the USA).
