How good is the UPF MSc finance and banking?


I speak Spanish and have work experience in business analytics as well as banking. Is the UPF MSc finance or MSc business analytics any good? It doesn't seem to have many linkedin members.

Work in Spain or Italy for an analytics firm but I don't know if UPf is a good school or not. What about Nova and Cattolica in Portugal or UC3M

Work where you want to study: Italy for Italy; Spain for Spain. UPF is probably better than UC3M but look to see where the jobs are that interest you.

I would rather work in Spain than in Italy however I see that the MSc finance and banking at UPf is not ranked by the ft. Is it a really bad school? I haven't heard many people going to the Barcelona school of management but comparatively a lot of people from my undergrad applied to BGSE

Obviously, most schools are not ranked by the FT. Not being ranked doesn't mean they're bad. It just means that they're not excellent. I think it's fair to say that BSM is not rated as highly as the rest of UPF. For economics, for example, UPF is one of the strongest universities in Europe.

The other quality mark to look for is the CFA, which has seven schools in Italy affiliated, and four in Spain: www.cfainstitute.org/en/about/universities/university-affiliation You will have a better route into firms with better qualification. But, certainly, Barcelona is the right place in Spain to be, and if you cannot afford private schools (EADA, ESADE, IESE) then BSM is a good option. The BGSE MSc in data science would be very much better.
