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.

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!
