London Business School’s Masters in Finance (MiF) post-experience programme continues to be the world’s best, according to the Financial Times (FT) Masters in Finance ranking.

LBS’s MiF programme has ranked first in the publication’s annual ranking of Masters in Finance post-experience programmes. It also ranked first in 2021, 2020, 2018 and 2017. The FT did not publish its Masters in Finance ranking in 2019.

The programme scored highly for overall satisfaction – 9.53 points out of 10, up from 8.34 in 2021. LBS also ranked highly in the ‘aims achieved’ category, which measures the extent to which alumni fulfilled their goals. 88% of LBS’s MiF graduates felt that they had achieved their aims, up from 83% in 2021.

Jane Charlton, Executive Director, Degree Programmes and Student Experience, Degree Education & Career Centre, LBS says: “We are incredibly proud of the quality of our Masters in Finance programme, which year after year continues to ensure that large numbers of our students achieve their goals. The high-quality programme is underpinned by world renowned faculty research, teaching and experiential learning, and enables interaction with a diverse and engaged body of students and more than 45,000 alumni around the globe. This, and the Career Centre which supports our students, play a crucial role in equipping our students to reach their individual career goals and in encouraging their success.”

The School’s Masters in Financial Analysis (MFA), which became eligible to rank for the first time two years ago, also ranked among the top ten pre-experience Masters in Finance programmes ranked by the FT with career support climbing 14 places to ninth out of 55 schools globally.

The results reflect the strength of the School’s finance programmes and the important role played by the Career Centre in preparing LBS’s graduates for a wide range of financial careers.
