The Financial Times has updated it Masters in Finance Rankings for 2017. The publication produces two ranking tables: one for programs that require work experience, and one for programs that do not.

Instead, France's EDHEC Business School's MSc in Financial Markets, which was ranked fourth last year, leads the list. HEC Paris' MSc in International Finance comes in second place this year. ESSEC Business School has jumped four spots, from number seven last year to number three this year. ESCP Europe and MIT - Sloan round out the top five.

Skema Business School's MSc in Financial Markets and Investments has risen four places to land at position number six. Università Bocconi's Master of Science in Finance takes spot number seven, while IE Business School's Master in Finance has dropped from number three to number eight. Warwick Business School has broken into the top-10, landing at number nine; the University of St. Gallen's MA in Banking and Finance closes out the top-10. See the top 20 programs below.

The FT's pre-experience Masters in Finance ranking only lists six programs. London Business School's Masters in Finance has taken the top spot this year; LBS' program was ranked second last year. Cambridge - Judge's Master of Finance, which led the list last year, has dropped to position number two. Singapore Management University's MSc in Wealth Management and University of Illinois' MSc in Finance hold steady at numbers three and four, in that order.

So... why isn't MIT Sloan ranked higher? Seems that the salaries are better than all the other programs listed.

Also, crazy jump by Shanghai Jiao Tong!
