FT web

Our Masters in Finance programme aims to equip students with top employability skills and prepare them for an increasingly competitive sector of work and we are pleased to see this reflected in our Financial Times Masters in Finance ranking UK top 10 position. The UK is fast becoming a destination of choice for financial studies, with more UK than French or American business schools now ranked, and this programme is just one example of our extensive portfolio of programmes on offer at the ICMA Centre.

State-of-the-art dealing rooms, expert academics, contemporary case studies and strong industry connections allow students to experience real-world scenarios and learn from the best in the industry. The quality of the programme and award-winning careers support has provided us with top 10, top 20 and top 25 positions for careers and salary progress:

  • Careers progress: no.3 in the UK, no.14 in Europe, no.14 in the world
  • Salary percentage increase: no.5 in the UK, no. 16 in Europe and no. 23 in the world

Employability and careers support is an increasingly important factor for prospective students in choosing where to study and we are continually enhancing our careers offering for all of our students. Our practical approach and industry connections provides us with an advantage of bringing to the table financial education innovations and tangible benefits to our students in terms of career development and opportunities.

As an international business school that champions women in leadership, has campuses and offices around the world and 75,000 alumni in over 100 countries, we are proud to see top 10, top 25 and top 30 diversity results in this ranking:

  • Female faculty (%): No.1 in the world
  • Full-time international faculty (%): No.10 in the UK, no.21 in Europe, no. 22 in the world
  • Female students (%): No.11 in the UK, no.14 in Europe, no. 26 in the world
  • International students (%): No.2 in the world

We welcome programme members and lecturers from across the world and this diversity provides a great opportunity for students to gain different viewpoints, insights and approaches to enhance their understanding and prepare them for the real world of work.

Professor Adrian Bell, Head of the ICMA Centre, comments:

“We are delighted that our finance Masters programmes continue to be ranked among the world’s best. As one of the pioneers in finance education we have concentrated on developing an authentic, practice-oriented learning experience for our students which aims to address their needs and enhance their career prospects. It is great to see that this has been reflected in the latest ranking. This encourages us to keep working hard to introduce more innovations in parallel with the fast pace of evolution in the financial markets.”

The influential Masters in Finance ranking is produced to support prospective students to choose the right institution to enhance their future study and career and full details can be seen on the Financial Times website.
