The David Eccles School of Business has once again been honored by the Financial Times for its Master of Science in Finance (MSF) program.
The Eccles School MSF joined the world’s top business schools, coming in at No. 52 in the world, a two-spot jump from last year’s No. 54 placement. The program was also ranked in the top 10 in the United States.
The rankings look at a wide variety of factors, including career placement and salary after graduation, value of the degree, diversity of faculty and student body and experiential learning opportunities.
“We’re honored to be featured in the Financial Times rankings again,” said Danny Wall, director of the Eccles School MSF program. “It’s difficult to be ranked even once, so to not only make the list but improve two spots is incredibly gratifying. We’re proud to offer a world-class program to our students.”
The ranking is a welcome honor to the Eccles School, but not a surprising one, according to Dean Taylor Randall.
“Our students and faculty have always known that the Eccles School provides a fantastic education, on par with the best universities in the world and at an incredible value,” Randall said. “It’s wonderful to see that recognized by a publication as prestigious as the Financial Times. It’s our goal to keep our name on the list for years to come.”
