The Cambridge Master of Finance (MFin) degree programme at Cambridge Judge Business School was today ranked second in the Financial Times (FT) ranking of post-experience master of finance programmes worldwide.

The ranking (Financial Times, 13 June 2022) means that the Cambridge MFin programme has ranked in the top two globally in every year of eligibility for the FT rankings.

The Cambridge MFin programme ranked first globally this year in categories including salary today and international mobility (based on changes in the country of employment), and continued to rank first in aims achieved (88% of respondents said they fulfilled their goals or reasons for doing an MFin), effectiveness of the careers service, and percentage of women on the board.

Pedro Saffi, Director of the MFin programme, said:

“We are pleased that these rankings show once again the value of our MFin programme in terms of students achieving their goals and advancing in their careers. The international nature of our students and faculty are also recognised, as is the excellence of our careers service in counselling, personal development, networking events, and internship search and recruitment.”

Mauro Guillén, Dean of Cambridge Judge Business School, said:

“At a time of sweeping changes in finance and society, the Cambridge Judge MFin programme continues to excel in preparing students to meet these new challenges. The programme operated seamlessly through the unprecedented situation posed by the pandemic, and we are very proud that it has gone from strength to strength.”

A member of the MFin class ranked this year, Arina Kungeibayeva (MFin 2018), said:

“Before MFin, I worked as a mergers & acquisitions analyst in an investment bank in Malaysia. Currently, I am based in Washington, DC, where I work as an investment analyst. To make this ‘double jump’, I fully utilised the help available through the MFin career services. I will always be a part of the MFin and broader Cambridge community.”

Another member of the MFin class ranked this year, Thameema Hamza (MFin 2018), said:

“The MFin offers the right balance of Cambridge’s renowned academic rigour and hands-on practical experience, in the form of extensive networking events and guest lectures from leading minds in the finance industry. The diversity of the class across geographies and sectors provided a unique opportunity to learn from different experiences.”
