Financial Times ranks EDHEC Master in Finance among world’s Top 5

EDHEC Business School’s Masters in Finance programme ranks 5th in the world, according to the 2022 Financial Times Masters in Finance Ranking, released today. EDHEC, which the FT named a Top 10 European Business School earlier this year, offers students impressive opportunities for career and salary advancement, and maintains an elite standing among Finance programmes in Europe and around the world.

In this edition of the Financial Times Masters in Finance Ranking, EDHEC maintained its 3rd place ranking in Career Progression, and climbed 7 places in the category of Career Services to clinch 7th place overall. The salary of EDHEC Masters in Finance graduates (after three years of work experience) also witnessed a 16% increase compared to last year’s ranking, for an average of $100,666 (USD) per year.

In terms of International Course Experience and International Mobility, the EDHEC Masters in Finance also ranked well: placing 4th and 8th respectively. For overall student satisfaction, the programme scored an impressive 9 out of 10. Although this score was not included in the final Financial Times ranking, it is an indication of the high calibre of education provided by EDHEC and the value of this education in the eyes of graduates.

“We are thrilled to receive such a strong endorsement of our Masters in Finance programme,” says Michelle Sisto, Associate Dean of Graduate Studies at EDHEC. “We are grateful for the positive feedback from our graduates, and to know that they are succeeding in their careers thanks to the education they received at EDHEC. Our mission is to educate financial managers who will have an impact, and that’s exactly what our graduates do every day, no matter where they find themselves in the world.”

EDHEC has a long history of providing cutting-edge Finance education and is proud of its reputation as a global leader. Besides the master’s in finance, EDHEC also offers a PhD in Finance. Recently, the school hosted its 5th annual Finance PhD Forum, during which current and past doctoral students discussed their research with Finance practitioners from around the globe.

Earlier this year, EDHEC hosted a Future of Finance webinar series that invited top experts and some of the school’s professors to debate and discuss important finance issues. The webinar series attracted attention from top financial journalists who recognised EDHEC’s authority in the field and wanted to take a deep dive into the subjects discussed.

Last fall, EDHEC launched a new MSc in Climate Change & Sustainable Finance, which aims to prepare future finance managers to lead the way in reducing carbon emissions and creating a greener planet. Members of the first class of this MSc recently graduated in a ceremony on EDHEC’s Lille campus.
