LBS finance programme tops FT rankings
London, June 30, 2011
London Business School’s (LBS) masters in finance has been ranked number one globally by the Financial Times for post-experience programmes.
The Financial Times’ inaugural rankings were split into pre- and post-experience programme, and London Business School is the only leading business school to have made it into this year’s post-experience ranking, a statement said.
“It is fantastic to be publicly recognised as the best post-experience Masters in Finance by the FT. It acknowledges the strength of our School as a leading finance academic centre, which has been made possible thanks to our world-class faculty who produce outstanding research while at the same time being incredibly gifted professors,” said Estrella Frutos, programme director, Masters in Finance (MiF).
“This, coupled with our privileged position at the heart of a global financial centre and our ability to attract the best finance professionals in the world, explains the success of our MiF programme.”
As with other the rankings compiled by the Financial Times, the ranking is based on questionnaires completed by alumni who have been in the workplace for three years since graduation and by business schools themselves. – TradeArabia News Service
