The Financial Times Publishes Master in Finance Rankings for 2020

HEC Paris and ESCP Business School once again lead the list of pre-experience degrees

After skipping a year, the Financial Times has published the 2020 edition of its Master in Finance Rankings. 

As per usual there are two rankings: one for pre-experience Master in Finance degrees and the other for those degrees that require work experience. 

For the best pre-experience Master in Finance degrees, HEC Paris leads the list, as it did in 2018, as well as each year other than 2017. 

ESCP Europe takes the runner-up spot, which it also did in 2018. Following ESCP are three France-centric schools: Skema Business School, ESSEC Business School, and EDHEC Business School. Switzerland's University of St. Gallen holds steady at position number six, while Italy's SDA Bocconi has risen one spot to take position number seven. 

The first US school, MIT - Sloan, has fallen one position to number eight; Imperial College Business School and Oxford - Said round out the top 10.

There's more movement further down the list. Germany's WHU Otto Beisheim makes a solid debut in the ranking at position number 22. Likewise, Ireland's Trinity College Dublin makes its debut a few spots down, at number 27. 

The University of Bath's School of Management had a nice rice this year, jumping from number 54 in the 2018 ranking to 39th in 2020. On the other hand, the University of Lancaster dropped from 29 to 43 and the University of Maryland's Smith School of Business lost ground as well, dropping from 30 to 45. 

In terms of the FT's post-experience Master in Finance ranking, the list is identical to the 2018 ranking: London Business School, Cambridge - Judge, and Singapore Management University (SMU) are listed in that order.
