IFT is home to three taught Master's programmes and a PHD. We have a substantial research portfolio in digital finance and alternative investment and all our students can benefit from extensive links to world leading industry in London and internationally, state-of-the-art facilities at UCL and our esteemed teaching staff who are experts in their fields.
Teaching at IFT is unique, since it is delivered by both academic and industry experts. We believe this provides students with the best of both worlds, providing a rigorous foundation of key theories and concepts, and consolidating this with an understanding of real-world applications.
The past decade has seen a dramatic growth of start up ecosystems and huge shifts across the world of business. With this comes a growing demand for Private Equity and Venture Capital - a new class of investors that help businesses at every stage of their existence. Our MSc programme is the first in the world to match the emerging field of Financial Technology with the study of Private Capital, bridging the gap between finance, technology and new business models. The MSc is a unique opportunity to examine how business models are impacted and driven by information and communication technology and the role of private capital to assist and fully implement their potential.
