Financial Times Ranks Trinity MSc in Finance as 1st in Ireland and amongst the Top 5 across UK & Ireland

Trinity Business School has been ranked 18th in the European Union and 5th in Ireland and the UK in the 2020 Global Masters in Finance rankings (pre-experience) produced by the Financial Times, with the programme also ranking 27th Globally.

The rankings provide another boost to Dublin as a centre for international finance with Trinity’s Masters in Finance becoming a European leader. The business school also secured 1st place in Ireland for its MSc in Finance.

Professor Andrew Burke, Chair of Business Studies and Dean at Trinity Business School, says:

“Our MSc is now amongst the top 5 finance masters in the UK and Ireland combined.  This is timely as Dublin’s International Financial Services Centre continues to expand, most recently due to the Brexit-induced relocation of many finance service activities from London to Dublin, and so it is important that financial services firms in Dublin have a local pool of graduates to hire from one of the very best masters in finance.  I am especially proud of our expert and dedicated team of faculty and professional staff who continue to drive innovation and improvements in this programme on a yearly basis.  They full deserve this latest accolade to add to the recent Eduniversal ranking placing this MSc as the number 1 corporate finance masters programme in Europe”. 

Aleksandar Šević, Director of the MSc in Finance Programme says:

“The Trinity Business School MSc in Finance programme is offered in the heart of Dublin, close to the IFSC, and provides students will knowledge and skills necessary to excel in the global financial industry. The team of permanent and adjunct TBS staff members has delivered lectures in the MSc in Finance programme from the very beginning with excellence and dedication to the highest academic and professional standards.  Internationally diverse and gender-balanced student cohorts have had an opportunity to attend core-required modules modelled in accordance with the latest requirements forwarded by stakeholders in the financial industry, by the affiliate programme partner, Chartered Financial Analyst Institute, and by the programme partner, Chartered Alternative Investment Analyst Association. An important option for our students is to choose elective modules that are closely aligned with future career goals.”
