ESCP Europe Master in Finance rises to 2nd worldwide in Financial Times rankings

The ESCP Europe Advanced Master in Finance has risen from 3rd to 2nd position in the Financial Times annual global rankings.

Taught in French and English at the ESCP Europe Paris and London campuses, the programme is number 1 in the UK for the second consecutive year and thereby consolidates its position as the best finance course available to the London market.

This ranking rewards the programme’s international positioning, but also the technical and professional dimensions that support its leading edge reputation. The programme ranks 1st worldwide for employment rates, and 2nd for international experience. The programme also stands out in terms of ‘aims achieved’ (5th position).

With nearly 30 years of experience, the Advanced Master in Finance programme is targeted to functions in merchant banking and investment. It has adapted to changes and market expectations by developing strong links with financial institutions and leveraging a global network of dynamic Alumni.

The programme’s Academic Director, Dr Philippe Thomas, said: "This ranking acknowledges the quality of the programme, due largely to our Alumni community’s strong involvement in keeping course content relevant. Alumni are very active in our Advisory Board, and work closely with our Faculty to ensure high course quality and careful selection criteria for students.”

ESCP Europe’s Dean, Dr Frank Bournois, said: "This ESCP Europe Advanced Master, a programme offering academic and professional excellence, enjoys the unique positioning of our School. The two campuses, two countries, two languages formula is made possible by our genuinely original multi-campus structure that allows students to grasp, in addition to the technical aspects of the trade, the respective characteristics of two very different marketplaces. It is particularly this presence in London, the world's financial centre, that makes our programme so highly attractive."
