Rennes School of Business’ MSc in International Finance recognised in the Top 25 of the Financial Times
On Monday 21 June 2021, the MSc in International Finance at Rennes School of Business was ranked in the Top 25 master’s in global finance by the Financial Times.
The Financial Times ranking of Masters in Finance is highly regarded by students from all over the world and ranks the top training programmes in the field of Finance. This year, in 2021, the Rennes School of Business MSc in International Finance placed 24th worldwide, climbing 5 places compared to the ranking in 2020.
In the ranking, Rennes School of Business stood out for two criteria:
2nd worldwide for “career progression”
This criterion is calculated based on changes in the level of seniority and the size of the company in which the graduates have worked since their graduation.
Juliette Le Texier, who graduated from the MSc in International Finance in 2020, tells us about her career since obtaining her master’s degree:
“I graduated from the MSc in International Finance at the Rennes School of Business in 2020 and have now worked as an auditor at KPMG Luxembourg for a year and a half. The Master in International Finance really prepared me for the world of work and gives students the ability to flourish within major international companies. This master’s degree sets its graduates up to be able to begin their careers abroad. The 100% English-language curriculum prepares students for a position in global finance. During the programme, we learn all of the necessary knowledge for a career in business and market finance. You can take modules that specialise in both areas and which prepare you for different careers in finance.”
Supporting students as they enter the labour market is an important and fundamental issue at Rennes School of Business, whether for a first internship or a first job. Students have access to a wide range of tools and facilities that favour the progression of the transversal skills and professional projects during their studies at the School. Notably, the Rennes School of Business Corporate Days are organised periodically throughout the year. The Corporate Days are an occasion for students to attend diverse career-oriented events such as conferences, roundtables, workshops, business games, business cases and individual coaching sessions.
2nd worldwide for “international professors”
This criterion is calculated according to the diversity of the nationalities of teachers, and the percentage of teachers that are not working in their country or origin.
Rennes School of Business is an international management school with a community made up of 70 different nationalities on our campuses in Rennes and Paris. Rennes SB has a uniquely diverse faculty with 95% permanent international professors representing 42 different nationalities.
For Thomas Froehlicher, Managing Director of the Rennes School of Business:
