The Financial Times released its 2020 rankings of the top masters of finance programs. Once again, the list was absolutely dominated by European schools. HEC Paris took the top spot for students with very little previous finance experience and London Business School took the top spot for students with at least a few years of previous experience in finance. MIT Sloan dropped to eighth place and marked the only US entrant in the top 10.
We understand the European schools have a distinct advantage since many of the top US business schools don’t even offer specialty degree programs in finance. However, we must admit we’re a bit confused as to how IU Kelley and Washington U Olin were completely omitted from the list. And while we’re fans of the David Eccles School of Business at the University of Utah, we’re not sure how that program beat out the aforementioned.
