Published: 2016-06-20

The Master’s degree programme in Finance at Lund University School of Economics and Managment is ranked 32nd in the world by Financial Times.

The Master’s programme in Finance at the Lund University School of Economics and Management (LUSEM) is ranked number 32 in the world in the Financial Times ranking of finance programmes that was released today. This is a climb from place 38 last year.

“Our students simply seem to be very satisfied with where our programme has taken them professionally”, says Kristina Eneroth, Vice-Dean at the School. The finance programme has climbed from being no 38 to 32 in the Financial Times prestigious annual global ranking of Master’s programmes in Finance.

The international financial paper sends questionnaires to the students who graduated three years ago, in which they have an opportunity to answer questions about what the study programme has meant for them, how their careers have taken off, what they have learned, to what extent they feel their studies paid off, etc.

“The competition for being included in the Financial Times's ranking of study programmes in Finance is fierce. We have wonderfully talented students who obtain good jobs after their studies and who are also very talented. Many of the students go straight into an international career. The ranking leads to even better collaborations with companies in the finance industry at large”, says Kristina Eneroth.

LUSEM’s former Master’s students in Finance appear to be most satisfied with the affordability of the programme. Also the international environment on the programme was a significant aspect. The programme is ranked 6th in the category for value for money, 19th for international course experience and 23rd for careers rank, which is a rank of the career status of alumni three years after graduation.

The ranking is open to Master’s programmes all over the world. However, they must be accredited in accordance with the quality systems EQUIS (European Quality Improvement System) or AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business).
