EADA’s Master in Finance ranks in Top 30 worldwide
EADA’s International Master in Finance has consolidated its position as one of the Top 30 in the world for postgraduate training in finance, at number 28, according to the Masters in Finance Pre-experience 2021 Ranking, published by the prestigious Financial Times. The yearlong programme, which is aimed at recent graduates wishing to pursue a career in the finance sector, offers a high rate of employability with 93% of graduates finding work 3 months after they finish the programme. Director of the programme, Jaume Bonet, points to the 88% of international participation with students from over 35 countries as “a factor that sets our programme apart in Spain”.
The Financial Times ranking is compiled based on various qualitative and quantitative parameters such as salary received 3 years after training, labour market insertion 3 months after completing the programme, the percentage of international participants, female presence or the number of PhD holders in the faculty, among other aspects. The student satisfaction score, which was added to the ranking last year, is rated at 8.93/10.
Digital transformation and sustainability in the financial sector
The results of this ranking form part of the changes that EADA Business School has introduced in its finance programmes with digital transformation and sustainability at their core. An example of this is the joint launch with ISDI of the new Master in Fintech & Business Analytics, which is aimed at professionals who wish to acquire the necessary competencies and skills to become leaders in the Fintech sector and form part of the digital revolution that many companies are currently undergoing. This sector clearly shows how disruptive innovation and digital transformation are conditioning factors of the current financial industry, which has witnessed a sudden increase in the demand for professionals with a broad and in-depth understanding of these changes.
In addition, EADA will be launching its new Online Master in Digital Business Management in September, which is a programme designed for professionals who want to understand the changes that businesses are undergoing as a result of digital transformation, sustainability, new economies, disruptive models and new management methodologies.
EADA also features, for a second year running, in the Positive Impact Rating 2021 Report, as one of the 24 business schools with a Level 4 out of 5 for being a ‘Transforming School’ and for its positive impact on society. This rating, which is published by the Positive Rating Association and is based solely on student evaluations, highlights the focus of all EADA programmes on sustainability and social responsibility.
