The Financial Times Publishes 2015 Master in Finance Rankings

HEC Paris leads the pre-experience ranking, again; LBS leads the post-experience ranking, again

The Financial Times has updated its pre- and post-experience Master in Finance rankings for 2015. 

For the fifth straight year, HEC Paris' Msc in International Finance leads the pre-experience ranking, while LBS' Masters in Finance program leads the post-experience ranking, also for the fifth year in a row.

Here's a quick breakdown of the two rankings.

Pre-experience ranking

In terms of the top-10 in the pre-experience ranking—which lists programs designed for students with little to no work experience—there were a few minor shifts. Spain's ESADE Business School retains its second-place spot, while ESCP Europe's Advanced Master in Finance climbed five places to take third. Spain's IE Business School's Master in Finance rose one spot to take position number four. MIT Sloan's Masters in Finance program, which debuted strongly last year at position number 10, rose another five spots to round out the top-five.

ESSEC Business School lost two spots to land at position number six; it's tied with Skema Business School's MSc Financial Markets and Investments, which rose four spots. France's EDHEC Business School, which was ranked number three last year, dropped five spots to number eight; the top-ten list is rounded out by Italy's Università Bocconi and Switzerland's University of St. Gallen.

Further down the list, there were some new entrants to the ranking. They include: 

  • Singapore Management University's (SMU) MSc in Applied Finance, which debuted at position number 34
  • Lund University School of Economics and Management's Master in Finance, which is ranked 38
  • University of Exeter's MSc in Financial Analysis and Fund Management, ranked 43
  • University of Hong Kong's Master of Finance, ranked 45
  • Aston Business School's MSc in Investment Analysis, which debuted at 48

Post-experience ranking

The FT's post-experience Master in Finance ranking only lists five programs. The top two programs, LBS' Masters in Finance and the University of Cambridge Judge Business School's Master in Finance, maintain their positions from last year. SMU's MSc in Wealth Management, which dropped off the ranking last year, re-emerged this year at position number three. The MScs in Finance from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and Florida International University's Chapman Graduate School of Business, round out the list. The University of Hong Kong's Master of Finance, which was ranked number four last year, has dropped off the ranking this year.
