The Financial Times Publishes 2016 Master in Finance Rankings

HEC Paris leads the pre-experience ranking for the sixth straight year; Cambridge - Judge nabs the top spot in the post-experience ranking

The Financial Times has updated its rankings of Master in Finance programs for 2016. The rankings list pre-experience and post-experience programs separately.

In the pre-experience ranking, HEC Paris' MSc in International Finance leads the list for the sixth straight year. The data suggests that grads of the program make $96,260 on average. HEC Paris' MSc is also listed as the best program in terms of international mobility - which is the ease that graduates move internationally after the program is over.

Following HEC Paris in the pre-experience ranking is ESCP Europe, which moved up one spot from last year. Also moving up one spot is Spain's IE Business School, which rounds out the top three.

France's Edhec Business School has moved up four places this year to land at spot number four in the pre-experience ranking. MIT Sloan, which reports the highest average post-graduation salary of all the schools ranked, holds on to position number five this year.

Spain's ESADE Business School lost a bit of ground this year, dropping from position number two last year to six this year. It's followed by ESSEC Business School and the University of St. Gallen.

Bocconi University and Skema Business School round out the pre-experience top 10.

Further down the list, France's Emlyon, which left the ranking in 2013, re-emerged this year at position number 24. Shanghai Jiao Tong University's Saif makes its debut in this ranking, coming it at position number 28. France's Neoma Business School is also a newcomer this year, debuting at position 30.

In terms of post-experience programs, the University of Cambridge's Judge Business School leads this year's list, taking the top spot from London Business School, which drops to position number two. Singapore Management University holds onto its number three spot, and the ranking is rounded out by two US schools, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and Florida International University's Chapman Graduate School of Business.
