For the second straight year, the Financial Times has named the Freeman School’s Master of Finance program as one of the best in the world.
The Freeman School’s MFIN program was ranked 30th internationally and third among U.S.-based programs in the Financial Times’ latest rating of pre-experience master’s in finance programs, which FT defines as programs aimed at students with little or no work experience. The ranking, part of FT’s Financial Training 2012 special report, was published on June 18.
“Rankings are ultimately just a derivative of what we do, but external recognition is always welcomed and appreciated,” said Ira Solomon, dean of the Freeman School. “We’re committed to making Freeman one of the nation’s premier institutions for graduate programs in business, so this outstanding showing in the Financial Times, coupled with the recent exceptional results for MBA placement, is gratifying evidence that our efforts are paying off. ”
The Financial Times surveys both the schools and their alumni to rank the top master’s programs in finance. Programs are rated on criteria including the salary and career progress of graduates, the relative value of the program, placement success, school diversity, and international exposure and mobility.
