EDHEC and Peking University make big gains in top pre-experience programs

The Financial Times has published its 2012 rankings of Masters in Finance programs, for both the pre- and post-experience categories. This is FT's second annual rankings of Masters in Finance programs, which are generally one year long and prepare students for careers in fields like financial analysis and corporate finance.

In terms of pre-experience programs (which are designed for candidates with little or no work experience,) there is very little change in the top spots. The top four are identical to last year: HEC Paris is on top, followed by IE Business School, ESSEC Business School, and the University of Oxford.

The rest of the list features a few big movers. Switzerland's University of St. Gallen has jumped seven spots, from number 12 to number 5. EDHEC and Peking University: Guanghua, both of which were not ranked last year, place at numbers 6 and 8, respectively.

There are only four programs featured in the FT's post-experience rankings. The list is topped by London Business School, which is followed by George Washington University, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and Florida International University/Chapman.
