The School of Economics and Finance at Queen Mary University of London has been ranked 39th in the world and 10th in the UK in the Financial Times Global Masters in Finance 2015, Pre-experience programmes for the Investment and Finance MSc.

“Our strong careers ranking is particularly pleasing and puts us 6th in the world (2nd in the UK) for the success of our graduates in achieving senior positions in their chosen career.

We are one of the very few finance programmes that are not run within a business school that appear in the ranking and the only one in the UK. This means we offer a genuine alternative to MBA-focussed courses,” says Francis Breedon, Professor of Economics & Finance.

The Financial Times ranking of Masters in Finance Pre-experience ranking is based on 18 criteria. Conditions include:  graduate salaries three years after graduation, diversity of the staff and student cohort (both male to female ratio, and international diversity), value for money, careers rank, placement success, employability, the percentage of professors that hold doctorates and international mobility.
