London Business School tops international ranking
23 Jun 2014
Masters in Finance is best for teaching, prospects and value
London Business School’s full-time Masters in Finance (MiF) programme has today been ranked the world’s number one post-experience programme by the Financial Times.
This is the fourth year in a row that LBS has topped the table, which surveys students on their post-course careers as well as examining the quality of academic staff and international diversity.
Of those surveyed, London Business School MiF alumni had the highest salary three years after they graduated. The programme was also recognised for international diversity and for the increasing number of female students.
London Business School Dean Professor Sir Andrew Likierman said: “Our Masters in Finance programme benefits from world class teaching, the combination of practical experience and academic rigour, diversity of students and staff and, of course, being in London itself. It is clearly important to our students that our MiF alumni recorded the best career progression outcomes.”
Of the five schools ranked, London Business School recorded the most-qualified faculty (100% hold doctorates), including world-leading finance academics such as Professors Stephen Schaefer, Julian Franks, Francesca Cornelli and Suleyman Basak. Many are consultants to financial institutions, industry and government, and hold directorships in a range of organisations in addition to their academic work.
There are 123 students in the current MiF class (2014) representing 42 nationalities and with an average six years’ work experience in finance. The post-experience programme can be studied in full-time or part-time format. London Business School has enhanced its career services provision for MiF students even further in the past year.
