The Cambridge Master of Finance (MFin) degree programme at Cambridge Judge Business School was today ranked second in the Financial Times ranking of post-experience master of finance courses worldwide (Financial Times, 22 June 2015).
The MFin programme at Cambridge Judge was also ranked second by the FT last year, the first year the programme met the conditions for inclusion, which are a minimum class size of 30 students and a programme that is at least three years old. The Cambridge MFin is now in its seventh year.
The Cambridge MFin programme ranked first for international mobility, on career progress based on seniority and company size, and for the percentage of the class in jobs three months after the programme ended, at 90 per cent. The absolute salary of our MFin graduates responding was $123,153, while the average increase in salary since starting the Cambridge MFin course was 63 per cent.
The FT rankings were based on responses of the Cambridge MFin class of 2011/12, and include data on salary, salary increase, value for money, international mobility, careers progress, percentage of the class in employment and other School-wide measures including composition of faculty and the advisory board.
Simon Taylor, Director of the MFin programme, said:
These ratings confirm that the MFin team has done an excellent job in establishing the programme and maintaining its excellence. Rankings are useful, but there are many other qualities of the programme reflecting its academic rigour and commercial relevance that rankings do not measure. We are confident of the programme’s continued success and progress.
Christoph Loch, Dean of Cambridge Judge Business School, said:
I congratulate the MFin team and the wider faculty and staff of Cambridge Judge for these results in the programme’s second year of eligibility in the FT rankings. We have established a world-class post-experience Master of Finance course, and these results confirm this for the second year running.
