WBS retains top place for pure Finance Masters programme
In the second annual ranking of pre-experience MSc Finance programmes, published in the Financial Times, WBS is placed tenth in the world and retains the position of top pure Finance programme in the UK.
This year the rankings included 35 schools, up from 30 last year, and WBS was one of only five UK schools placed in the top 20 globally.
This excellent result for WBS reflects both the strong career performance of graduates from three years ago, as well as the strength of the current cohort and programme.
As one of WBS' most successful programmes, the MSc Finance is renowned for providing its high quality students with a strong foundation in the principles and practice of finance. WBS is among the elite group of UK business schools to be recognised by the CFA Institute as a CFA Programme Partner.
Associate Dean for Masters Programmes, Professor Nigel Piercy, commented, "Recognition by the Financial Times as one of the top ten MSc Finance programmes in the world is a great achievement and perfectly in line with the WBS vision of becoming the best university-based business school in Europe."
