UC3M has one of the world’s best Master’s degrees in finance

According to the Financial Times ranking


The Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) is ranked 29th in the world among the best centres to specialise in finance, according to a ranking published by the British newspaper Financial Times, which analyses the best “pre-experience” Master’s degrees in finance (for students with little or no work experience). UC3M is the only Spanish public institution that is included in this ranking and has moved up four places in the last two years.

The UC3M Master’s Degree in Finance appears in this ranking along with other degrees offered by three Spanish private business schools: IE Business School, Esade Business School and Eada Business School Barcelona. The top three places in the world are held by: HEC Paris, ESCP Europe and Skema Business School (all in France).

This ranking of Master’s degrees in finance analyses students’ career and salary progression, the programme’s international projection, the diversity of student and teacher backgrounds and the value for money, among other parameters. In order to be included in this ranking, Master’s degrees must be taught full-time, have a minimum of 30 students and be accredited by AACSB or Equis.

UC3M is a Spanish public university that excels in research, teaching and innovation. It is among the best universities in the world in the QS World University Rankings 2022 and among the best universities for the employability of its graduates, according to the latest edition of the Times Higher Education (THE) Global University Employability Ranking. In 2017, UC3M became the first Spanish public university to obtain accreditation from AACSB, an international organisation which recognises the world’s best educational centres for their teaching quality and research in the areas of business administration, accounting, finance and marketing.
