SSE's MFIN program ranked 18 in the world
SSE improved its ranking by two places compared to last year, going from 20 to 18. To evaluate the school's performance, alumni who graduated in 2020 were surveyed. The results indicated that these alumni have seen a 49% increase in salary since starting their careers three years ago, with an average salary of USD 104,834. Additionally, 90% of SSE alumni responding to the survey felt that they had fulfilled their goals for taking the SSE Masters in Finance degree.
Furthermore, the placement survey conducted by the school for the 2022 graduates revealed that 94% of Master in Finance alumni had secured employment within three months after completing their studies.
"One reason for SSE's continued strong performance in this important global ranking is the strength of SSE's alumni network, which assists students in finding internships during their studies and employment at the end of their studies,” says Anders Anderson, Program Director of the Master in Finance Program. ”Alumni are active as mentors, guest lecturers, and remain involved with SSE during their careers. SSE is a relatively small business school so the alumni involvement is important to our success."
It's important to note that the ranking is determined through two surveys. The first survey, which accounts for 58% of the overall score, is sent to alumni who finished their studies three years prior. The second survey, accounting for 42% of the score, is completed by the participating business school itself.
