The Master in Banking and Finance study program offered by HSG has defended sixth position in the new rankings published by the Financial Times. Since 2012, it has regularly taken a spot in the top ten of the Financial Times Masters in Finance Ranking, as revealed in a press release issued by HSG.
For the rankings, the relevant study courses at “56 leading universities and institutes of higher education around the world” are compared with each other. “Various criteria were investigated and assessed, including the study program’s contribution to achieving professional goals, value for money, international nature of the program, balance between male and female students and the overall graduate satisfaction”, HSG states. It describes the rankings as “a yardstick for academic excellence in global finance Master programs”. École des hautes études commerciales (HEC) Paris took top spot in the league table. HSG is the top-ranked university in the German-speaking DACH area.
“We want to offer students a holistic perspective with regard to developments within the financial sector”, comments Manuel Ammann, Academic Director of the study program, in the press release, before adding: “They should be able to summon the courage to tackle problems and work towards improvements”.
