Head of Master in Finance Programme (Student Support and Educational


The Master of Finance (MFin) is a full-time, premium fee programme within Cambridge Judge Business School (CJBS), with fees currently of £55,080 for the 1-year degree.

The degree is academically rigorous and combines elements of traditional classroom-based learning with experiential opportunities and client-based projects and aims to keep pace with the most cutting-edge areas of Finance, including Algo Trading, Bitcoin, AI and Machine Learning to offer relevant teaching for skills in those emerging areas.

The class size is now more than double its original size, with 90+ students made up of a wide variety of nationalities, with strong academic qualifications and high level prior professional experience (on average 4-5 years), who demand a level of quality of course delivery and service commensurate with their experience in the corporate world. The Programme is highly selective, and innovative in its delivery, mixing elements of traditional classroom-based learning and continually evolving online, interactive resources.

The MFin represents a significant income stream for the School and as such the management and strategic focus of the programme carries considerable responsibility for reputation and the continued academic success of the Masters degree. The programme delivers over 30 courses, practitioner talks and lecture series; specialist workshops and two major client-based projects plus additional summer projects.

The Programme team directly manages the submission of over 1,500 pieces of assessed coursework each year, VLE management, daily course logistics and delivery across a very busy timetable, teaching committees, quality monitoring and control, pastoral issues which regularly arise, large events, and a complex orientation period at the start of the year.

Temporary cover: This post is fixed-term for 1 year or the return of the post holder, whichever is earlier.
