Vlerick Master in Financial Management programme makes excellent debut in the Financial Times ranking

Results of the FT ‘Masters in Finance 2012’ ranking

The Masters in Financial Management at Vlerick Leuven Gent Management School has entered the Financial Times ‘Masters in Finance’ ranking for the first time, holding an excellent 26th position worldwide. The programme which has both a corporate and a market finance track has an outstanding record also in placement, and is CFA accredited. Currently, the programme has 60 students from 14 different nationalities.

When taking a closer look at the key indicator results that combined determine a programme’s position in the ranking, we can conclude that Vlerick once again provides excellent value for money (15th position), and provides a great international course experience (11th position).

Wouter De Maeseneire, Vlerick Professor of Finance and the programme’s Director, comments: “We are pleased that the FT ranking has acknowledged the strength of our programme, as the market does appreciate the quality of our students. We indeed believe we provide a unique offering, focusing more on the broad aspects of financial management rather than purely on technical finance. We are continuously upgrading the programme and we are looking forward to future rankings.

In its business school profile section accompanying the rankings, the Financial Times noted the uniqueness of the Vlerick Financial Management programme, and the practical approach of the School in general. Read the full article.
