FEP's Master in Finance in the "top 50" of the Financial Times ranking

FEP's Master in Finance in the "top 50" of the Financial Times ranking
Notícias Universidade do Porto · 20 Jun 2022
The Master in Finance of the Faculty of Economics of the University of Porto (FEP) is, for the first time, present in the prestigious ranking "Masters in Finance 2022", of the Financial Times (FT), entering directly to the 49th position worldwide in this exclusive ranking for finance courses, one of the most influential among economics and management schools worldwide.

"The presence of the Master in Finance in the Financial Times ranking is the result of the work that the whole school has been doing, particularly in the field of internationalisation. This is another recognition that encourages us to work in order to continue to provide our students with a solid academic training and to create talent and impact in society", highlights FEP's Director, José Varejão.

The Master in Finance of FEP stood out as the best course in Portugal and the seventh best worldwide in terms of return on academic investment (value for money rank). This indicator, calculated from graduates' current salaries, course duration and tuition fees, shows that graduates recover the financial investment of the course in a short period of time.

"Seeing the Master in Finance recognised by the Financial Times as one of the 50 best programmes in the world is a confirmation of the high quality of the training given to FEP students, the strong impact of the programme on the professional progression of our students and the excellent scientific and pedagogical level of its faculty. This position in the ranking will certainly allow an increase in the visibility of the Master in Finance and FEP internationally and we will have excellent prospects to aspire to even higher positions in the very near future", highlights the Director of the Master, Jorge Farinha.

High employability and open door to the world

The ranking also valued aspects such as the performance of the career service of FEP in the support and monitoring of its graduates and the opportunities for international mobility provided by the course.

In all, the Financial Times "Masters in Finance 2022" ranking evaluated 17 indicators that are grouped into the following categories: alumni career progress, school diversity, international experience and research.

"Masters in Finance students have a very high employability rate (over 90% in 3 months) and are increasingly pursuing international careers. These opportunities are leveraged by the significant exposure of students to a truly international learning experience, in the sphere of both double degree agreements with top European schools, involvement in the worldwide QTEM-Quantitative Techniques for Economics and Management network and a high offer of international mobilities in partner schools", highlights Jorge Farinha.

In this edition of the ranking "Masters in Finance 2022" were selected 55 schools from around the world, five of which are Portuguese. The complete ranking can be consulted here.
