Financial Times Publishes 2014 Master in Finance Rankings

HEC Paris leads the pre-experience list again; MIT - Sloan makes strong debut

The Financial Times has updated its Master in Finance rankings, which rank both pre- and post-experience MiF programs separately. Here's a quick round-up of the top schools from each list.

Pre-experience ranking

In the pre-experience ranking, HEC Paris leads the list, for the fourth straight year. The school's 8-10 month Masters in International Finance includes a 4-6 month internship component and optional French language classes.

Following HEC Paris in the pre-experience ranking is Spain's ESADE Business School's MSc in Financial Markets, which debuted at number five last year. ESADE is followed by EDHEC Business School's MSc in Financial Markets, which moved up one spot from last year, and ESSEC Business School's Advanced Master in Financial Techniques, which dropped two spots. IE Business School's Master in Finance, which rounds out the top five.

Next up is the three-semester long Master of Arts HSG in Banking and Finance from Switzerland's University of St. Gallen, which climbed four spots to position number 10. Oxford - Said's MSc in Financial Economics took position number seven, while ESCP Europe's Advanced Master in Finance and Bocconi's Master of Science in Finance tied for spot number eight.

And with its strong debut at position number ten, MIT - Sloan's one-year long Masters of Finance is the first US-based program to break into the top-ten list of this ranking.

Other debuts in the pre-experience ranking this year include the following:

  • Rochester - Simon's MS in Finance, which ranks 37
  • Glasgow - Adam Smith's MFin International Finance, which ranks 39
  • Leeds University's MSc Accounting and Finance, which ranks 41
  • The Master of Science in Finance from Chile's Universidad Adolfo Ibanez, at position 44
  • Arizona - Eller's Master of Science in Finance, which sneaks in at 45

Post-experience ranking

For the fourth straight year, London Business School's Masters in Finance leads the post-experience ranking. The program can be pursued on either a full- or a part-time basis, and can be completed in between 10 and 22 months, depending on program options.

With a strong debut, Cambridge - Judge's Master of Finance program comes in at number two in the post-experience ranking. Judge is followed by University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, whose Master of Science in Finance program remains steady at number three for the third straight year. The post-experience ranking is rounded out by the Master of Finance from University of Hong Kong and the Master of Science in Finance from Florida International - Chapman.

The Master in Finance rankings from the Financial Times rank programs based on a variety of metrics, including graduate salary today, salary increase, placement success, and the number of international students in cohorts, among others.
