The Financial Times has published its third annual rankings of Masters in Finance programs, for both the pre- and post-experience categories.
In the pre-experience Masters in Finance ranking, HEC Paris, Essec Business School, and IE Business School held onto the top three spots, in that order. The fourth and fifth spots were taken by newcomers Edhec Business School and Esade Business School, respectively.
The pre-experience top ten list is rounded out by Oxford's Saïd Business School, the Grenoble Graduate School of Business, ESCP Europe, the Cranfield School of Management, and Switzerland's University of St. Gallen (in that order).
The post-experience Masters in Finance Ranking includes only five programs: London Business School, Singapore Management University's Lee Kong Chian School of Business, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Florida International University's Chapman Graduate School of Business, and the University of Hong Kong (ranked in that order).
For the Masters in Finance rankings, the FT only considers programs that have been run for at least four years. Criteria that are considered include alumni salary today, international mobility, and diversity, among others.
