The ICMA Centre, Henley Business School retains its strong position in the FT Masters in Finance world rankings

The ICMA Centre's specialist Masters in Finance programmes are part of Henley’s wider continued high rankings, key to which has been several ingredients:

1. Employment success

Alumni voted Henley into the world’s top 20 for the effectiveness of its careers service in helping them secure graduate quality jobs. These are typically in the areas of Capital Markets and Securities, Investment Management, Corporate Finance, M&A, and government agencies, among others.

Nearly 80% of all students found a job within three months of completing their degree at Henley.

2. A truly international and diverse student experience

  • Students come from 16 countries around the globe
  • Female students account for nearly half the student body
  • Nearly half of the Faculty members are international
  • 41% of all Faculty members are now women

Professor Adrian Bell (Head of the ICMA Centre) commented:

Our focus is on providing our students with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed so I am delighted to see them achieving such great things in their careers. With competition being so high, we work hard to keep ahead of the game through constant innovation, for example our new programme in Behavioural Finance, that explores alternative explanations for the financial problems of the last few years. This result adds to Henley’s successes in rankings already this year, with top 10 UK positions for both undergraduate degrees, including number 1 position for Accounting and Finance Undergraduate degrees(Guardian University Guide), and Executive Education Programmes (Financial Times).

The LIBOR/ TIBOR ‘Scandal’

12 February 2013
The large fine imposed on RBS last week suggests that a ‘scandal’ took place in the banking world over the setting of LIBOR. Yes – there was probably systematic mis-pricing of LIBOR which enabled some traders and some banks to profit at the expense of others. But the LIBOR issue simply highlights a much wider problem in financial markets which is that many ‘prices’ quoted in markets are not market prices at all. Instead they are prices based on computer models, matrix pricing or sheer guesswork, which may or may not produce ‘accurate’ prices. The reason for using computers models and guesswork is that in many financial products there actually are no transactions at all or very few even over periods of some weeks or months and thus no market prices.
