Lille Region once again scored high in the Financial Times masters in finance rankings, which evaluate the world's leading programs in the field. Two regional business schools scored in the Top 10 for pre-experience degrees, with Edhec taking 4th place and Skema 10th.
Investors increasingly view high-quality education and access to expert human resources as key priorities, and Lille Region meets their expectations on both counts. As France's second largest educational cluster, we are home to many world-class schools and institutions of higher education—as confirmed by the FT's latest masters in finance rankings, which name two regional business schools among the top ten in the pre-experience category.
One of the best business schools in France and worldwide, Edhec appears in the rankings for the first time this year, edging out Oxford University's Saïd Business School to take fourth place (of 40) with its MSc in Financial Markets. The FT’s evaluation criteria rate Edhec no. 1 for the international scope of its program, and no. 4 for the international mobility of its alumni.
Meanwhile, Skema Business School’s MSc Financial Markets and Investments program moved up two places to become the world's tenth-ranked pre-experience masters in finance.
The curriculum scored particularly well in three key areas:
- International profile of Skema faculty (ranked 5th)
- Career mobility of alumni (ranked 6th)
- International mobility of alumni (ranked 8th).
“The FT rankings methodology is based on the achievements of our alumni three years after graduation, and we are extremely proud of their performance. For the third year running, Skema has made it into this prestigious ranking—an exceptional testimony to our position as a worldwide leader in this area,” said Alice Guilhon, dean of Skema Business School.
In all, France captured five of the top ten rankings for pre-experience masters in finance programs, underscoring the excellence of the nation’s curricula, faculty and students.
