Master’s in Finance climbs in Financial Times international ranking

Published: 2020-06-15

Lund University School of Economics and Management climbs one step and lands on #38 on Financial Times' prestigious annual global ranking of Master’s programmes in finance. The last ranking was released in 2018, with 50 ranked schools. This year, the number of schools on the list has increased to 55.

“Our students seem to be very satisfied with where their education has taken them professionally. It is a seal of approval for the programme and for the school. Good students combined with good teachers is a successful combination,” says Kristina Eneroth, vice dean at the School of Economics and Management.

The international financial newspaper’s ranking is based on surveys to students who graduated three years ago. They answer questions about what their education has given them, how their careers have taken off, what they earn, and estimate the value of the education.

“The competition for being on the Financial Times ranking is fierce. We have wonderfully talented students, who get good jobs after their education and in addition, are very talented. Many of the students graduate directly into an international career. The work on the ranking leads to even better cooperation with companies in the financial industry as a whole,” says Kristina Eneroth.

Among the Scandinavian universities and colleges, Lund University School of Economics and Management (LUSEM) and Stockholm School of Economics have so far been among the 55 elected programmes. The LUSEM students are exceptionally satisfied with the international study environment at the School.  

The Financial Times Global Master’s in Finance ranking is open to pre-experience programmes worldwide. However, they must be accredited according to the EQUIS (European Quality Improvement System) or AACSB, The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.

“We are very pleased with our position and know that it attracts the best students and opens up for more collaboration with the School’s corporate partners,” Kristina concludes.
