The Financial Times Updates Master in Finance Rankings for 2021

HEC Paris leads the pre-experience list; LBS dominates in the post-experience category

The Financial Times (FT) has published the 2021 edition of its Master in Finance rankings. 

As per usual, there are two rankings: one listing Master in Finance (MiF) programs aimed at those with little to no work experience, and those that target experienced professionals.

In the pre-experience list, HEC Paris leads the pack. Three years after graduation, the salary for HEC Paris MiF alumni is $156,583, on average. (For this ranking, the FT computes salary data for the class of 2018).

In the ten MiF rankings so far, HEC has been number one nine times. It was number one last year. In fact, the top five pre-experience MiF programs this year are the exact top five as last year (all are in France):

  1. HEC Paris
  2. ESCP Business School
  3. Skema Business School
  4. ESSEC Business School
  5. EDHEC Business School

Overall, the top 10 looks very similar to last year's. The notable exceptions are at number eight, which is shared by IE Business School (which was ranked 12th last year), and LBS (which was not ranked last year). 

In terms of pre-experience MiF programs, the top rated school outside of Europe is China's Tsinghua University School of Economics and Management, at spot number 12. The top-ranked US program is at the University of Texas at Austin: McCombs, which is ranked 43.

For the post-experience programs, the list is the same as it was last time, with just three programs ranked:

  1. LBS
  2. University of Cambridge: Judge
  3. Singapore Management University: Lee Kong Chian School of Business
