Eccles School finance master’s program ranked No. 8 in U.S.

Students in the David Eccles School of Business’s Master of Science in Finance program can now claim a top 10 program ranking in the United States.

Financial Times Master in Finance ranking 2016Today’s Financial Times worldwide rankings place the U’s MSF program No. 54 in the world and No. 8 in the U.S.

“The momentum and excellence of our finance program continues to be recognized by improved rankings,” said Taylor Randall, dean of the David Eccles School of Business. “We were proud of the MSF program being in the top 25, and even more proud today to be included in the Financial Times’ top 10 for U.S. schools.”

The Eccles School’s Master of Science in Finance (MSF) program offers a one-year degree for full-time students or a part-time option for working students. The program develops innovative thinkers who will lead the next generation of financial and investment managers.

“We’ve found an MSF degree to be more of a requirement and less of an option for those seeking successful careers in financial trading, risk and asset management and other technical financial fields,” said Danny Wall, director of the Eccles School’s MSF program. “It’s the quality of our students, along with our excellent faculty and strong staff support, that has propelled our program to the top 10. We are thrilled to be globally recognized as a top MS Finance program alongside esteemed colleges and universities. It’s an amazing milestone for our program and the Eccles School.”

The ranking is based on information provided to Financial Times by the schools and their alumni. It weighs alumni responses to questions about salary, placement and international mobility, among other things. School responses address items like teaching staff diversity, board members and student gender diversity. Learn more about the ranking methodology on
