Times Higher Education and Wall Street Journal rank MSc in Finance programme in top 25 globally

Trinity Business School’s high growth strategy is beginning to pay off as its longest-running Master’s programme earned recognition in the recent global rankings released by Times Higher Education and the Wall Street Journal. For the MIF (master’s in finance) table – which aims to measure student experience and teaching excellence, the MSc in Finance placed 21st in the World and 1st in Ireland.

As one of the fastest growing established business school in Europe, with 127% growth over the last two years - the global recognition underpins the high quality of the students on the programme and their excellent career performance post-graduation. Education focused on careers and business performance is one of the Business School’s five key objectives and is central to its vision to become a university of greater consequence. The high-ranked programmes in its portfolio, such as the MSc in Finance, give justification to the €80 million investment in a new state of the art building at the heart of Dublin City which is set to open next spring.

Of the key areas analysed for the new rankings,career performance and progression was an essential part of the data collection with graduates from 2012, 2013 and 2015 being asked to answer 10 questions in an alumni survey which formed part of the final metrics. As well as having an average 92% rate of employment post-graduation* across our Masters programmes, the new rankings underscore the importance of the work which has gone into enhancing the employability outcomes of Trinity Business School students.

Also ranked 2nd in Western Europe for Corporate Finance by Eduniversal (2018), the MSc in Finance programme celebrated its 10th year back in May and Programme Director Professor Aleksandar Sevic was delighted to see it continue to prosper in the rankings. He said: “We are glad that THE/WSJ has ranked the TBS MSc in Finance programme as the 21st in the world and 1st in Ireland. It is a special tribute to our students, dedicated staff members and administrative support services who have promoted and constantly improved this programme over the last decade.”
