ESCP Business School’s Master in Finance (MSc) programme has been ranked first worldwide in the 2024 Financial Times ranking of the top 65 Masters in Finance programmes.

Retaining the top spot for the second consecutive year, this result reinforces ESCP’s position as one of the leading business schools in the world.

The annual FT rankings are based on several factors including international course experience, alumni network, diversity, career services, aims achieved, and alumni salaries. ESCP’s Master in Finance performed exceptionally in every respect, ranking 1st across many categories.

As in 2023, ESCP’s Master in Finance was ranked 1st for its alumni network and careers services, with 100% of graduates employed three months after graduation. Once again, the programme earned the top spot in terms of aims achieved for graduates (96% of respondents). With courses on the fundamentals of finance and the opportunity to specialise in corporate investment banking or financial markets, ESCP’s MSc in Finance is structured to give students immediate access to positions of responsibility within the financial industry.

“We are incredibly proud to be ranked first worldwide for a second time by the FT. This result reflects our commitment to providing a world-class education and the hard work and dedication of our faculty, staff, and students. Our continuous efforts to innovate and adapt our curriculum ensure our graduates are well-prepared to excel in the dynamic finance landscape,” says Professor Philippe Thomas, Academic Director of ESCP’s Master in Finance.

This year ESCP’s Master in Finance was also ranked 1st for international work mobility and 2nd for international course experience, highlighting the programme’s unique multicultural nature and ESCP’s international excellence. Teaching during the intensive 14-month programme is evenly split between the school’s campuses in two leading global financial centres: Paris & London. To graduate students must also complete a six-month internship that can be carried out anywhere in the world.

“We are thrilled to see our Master in Finance programme recognised once again for its exceptional quality and impact. As the world’s oldest business school, ESCP maintains its position of excellence thanks to the unwavering dedication of our faculty, staff, students and alumni. These outstanding results demonstrate ESCP’s commitment to preparing our students to be the well-rounded business leaders of tomorrow, across all industries,” says Professor Léon Laulusa, Dean and Executive President of ESCP Business School.

ESCP’s Master in Finance has been well-recognised for its strong career performance, in part due to its innovative teaching methods and focus on soft skills to prepare students for their professional journeys post-graduation.

“Beyond the foundations of finance, the programme is designed to help students define their career goals and develop key interpersonal skills. We believe this approach has strongly contributed to 100% of graduates being employed in less than three months following graduation from the programme,” adds Professor Philippe Thomas. “Soft skills have been a part of the programme for more than 10 years and continue to be improved every year as we see them as an essential element to our graduates’ future success.”
