HEC Paris Masters in Finance ranked number one worldwide for fifth consecutive year by the Financial Times

22 June 2015

The Financial Times  has ranked the HEC Paris Masters in Finance number one worldwide for the fifth consecutive year. The ranking, based on salary three years after graduation, international mobility, and participant and institutional diversity, affirms the continued excellence of the program.

The HEC Paris MSc in International Finance (MiF) is highly selective, with an 87% international student body. Students benefit from a strong theoretical foundation taught by world-class researchers, the practical knowledge of leading industry figures, and excellent peer networking. MiF graduates find jobs worldwide, primarily in investment banking and strategic consulting.

“Competition for the number one spot gets tougher every year. I’m convinced that the school’s belief in fostering cohesion and cooperation among students is a key asset of ours, one that helps us remain at the top: Strong friendships built on campus translate into a unique network after graduation,” says Jacques Olivier, professor of finance and MiF program director at HEC Paris.

The success of the MSc has led to the creation of the MBA-MiF dual degree, which brings together two of HEC Paris’ flagship programs, and the Executive MSc in Finance, which focuses on corporate finance and is aimed at finance directors.

“Finance continues to be a major discipline at HEC” says Bernard Ramanantsoa, dean of HEC Paris. “Today’s ranking highlights the long-term success of our finance offerings and of our graduates.”
