FT’s Masters in Finance 2022 ranking: SKEMA placed third worldwide

Published on 13 June 2022

The Financial Times has published its 2022 global ranking of finance programmes.  SKEMA, with its MSc Financial Markets & Investments programme, taught on the Grand Paris, Sophia Antipolis and Raleigh (USA) campuses, has been ranked third worldwide for the third consecutive year, among the 55 international business schools and universities selected by the FT. Notably, SKEMA is placed ahead of the University of Oxford: Said, London Business School, and other prominent business schools.

This third place worldwide is based on the international mobility offered by the programme, the salary progression of our graduates, and their satisfaction with the achievement of their objectives:


  • The programme ranks second worldwide in terms of mobility abroad during the curriculum, which attests to the relevance of SKEMA's glocal model. 
  • The salary progression of SKEMA graduates is 72%, 4 points higher than the average of the world's Top 10. This result places the school in the 7th position worldwide and 2nd in France in this criterion. 
  • 89% of graduates believe they have achieved the goals they had set before entering the programme. This performance places the school above the 3rd quartile worldwide.


Taught in English in Paris, Sophia Antipolis and Raleigh (USA), SKEMA's MSc Financial Markets & Investments programme provides students with solid practical expertise in global financial markets. On each of the three campuses, students work in trading rooms equipped with 60 Bloomberg terminals and linked to the world's stock exchanges, giving them a better understanding of the correlation between geopolitics, economics and financial markets.

"Our third place ranking is a testament to the success of our graduates and the value of our programme among the world's leading finance institutions. It also attests to the continuous support of our professors for our students – until they enter the job market. With a Top 5 ranking that is 100% French and has remained unchanged for the past three years, France demonstrates year after year the excellence of its top business schools," said Alice Guilhon, SKEMA's Dean and Executive President.

In Raleigh, the programme offers a course in financial analysis and also delivers the American certificate of the CFA Institute, a skill highly sought after by international recruiters.
