EDHEC Business School has consolidated its standing in the Financial Times global ranking of the best pre-experience Masters in Finance.

The Financial Times once again rates EDHEC in the top three worldwide, thereby confirming the School’s global leadership and excellence in finance.

“Today’s ranking once again places EDHEC among the top three business schools worldwide for finance, cementing our leadership among the best global institutions”, underlines Emmanuel Métais, Dean of EDHEC Business School.

The result further confirms EDHEC’s international high-impact strategy on the global finance industry and its status as the go-to academic institution in the field. Scientific Beta, EDHEC-Risk Institute and EDHEC’s cutting-edge finance programmes are perfect illustrations of this strategy in practice.

Scientific Beta, the supplier of smart-beta indices set up by the EDHEC-Risk Institute in 2012, produces and commercialises indices constructed from methodologies originating from EDHEC research. Numerous investors and asset managers around the world use these indices. Scientific Beta has signed partnership agreements allowing large asset managers to list managed-risk financial products (ETFs) replicating Scientific Beta indices on the London, Milan, Frankfurt, Paris and New York markets. As of 31 December 2017, Scientific Beta indices served as benchmarks for $25 billion of long-term investments.

EDHEC-Risk Institute (ERI) has teamed up with Princeton University (Operations Research and Financial Engineering Department -ORFE) and the Yale School of Management (SOM) in order to better cater to financial industry expectations.

Deepening its commitment in favour of finance that benefits society, EDHEC has teamed up with the department of Operations Research and Financial Engineering at Princeton University to develop innovative research projects, training and tools of real practice use for the industry. One tangible product of this collaboration was this May’s launch by EDHEC-Risk Institute and Princeton of a Goal-Based Investing Index Series designed to serve as benchmarks for a new-generation of investment solutions for pensions, an initiative that caps the joint research efforts conducted in this area with the support of Merrill Lynch.

In parallel, ERI and Yale SOM have also trained since 2013 over 560 participants through a Certificate in Risk and Investment Management that equips them to handle tomorrow’s challenges in the financial industry.

EDHEC’s third-place ranking underscores the excellence of its portfolio of finance programmes.

This latest Financial Times ranking once again distinguishes EDHEC’s Master of Science in Financial Markets. The criteria analysed by the Financial Times, notably via a questionnaire sent to EDHEC graduates, coincide with the pillars underpinning the programme, namely excellence in education and diversity of student experience, graduate career satisfaction and development, and international exposure (“alumni career progress”, “school diversity” and “international experience and research” in FT terminology). EDHEC’s student placement performance confirms the recognition earned by the programme over time, with EDHEC ranked first among French institutions in the ranking of the top schools worldwide for jobs in investment banking and displaying a strong track record year-after-year of placing graduates of the programme with top financial institutions (BofAML, BlackRock, Goldman Sachs, HSBC, JP Morgan, Barclays, Glencore, Lazard, Morgan Stanley, Pimco, Rothschild & Cie, UBS, etc.).

EDHEC is celebrating the 10th anniversary of its PhD in Finance this year. This doctoral programme prepares students for academic careers and the highest responsibilities in the financial industry. It applies an innovative pedagogical format that responds to the demands of top executives and attracts graduates from Wharton, Hong Kong University, Stanford and MIT, keen to join an exceptional programme with a strong reputation for both excellence and industry pertinence.

We are a news channel providing the latest Further Education News, giving insight from multiple sources on the latest education policy developments, latest strategies, through to our thought leaders who provide blue sky thinking strategy, best practice and innovation to help look into the future developments for education and the future of work.

In Jan 2021, FE News had over 173,000 unique visitors according to Google Analytics and over 200 new pieces of news content every week, from thought leadership articles, to the latest education news via written word, podcasts, video to press releases from across the sector, putting us in the top 2,000 websites in the UK.

We thought it would be helpful to explain how we tier our latest education news content and how you can get involved and understand how you can read the latest daily Further Education news and how we structure our FE Week of content:

Main Features

Our main features are exclusive and are thought leadership articles and blue sky thinking with experts writing peer to peer news articles about the future of education and the future of work. The focus is solution led thought leadership, sharing best practice, innovation and emerging strategy. These are often articles about the future of education and the future of work, they often then create future education news articles. We limit our main features to a maximum of 20 per week, as they are often about new concepts and new thought processes. Our main features are also exclusive articles responding to the latest education news, maybe an insight from an expert into a policy announcement or response to an education think tank report or a white paper.

FE Voices

FE Voices was originally set up as a section on FE News to give a voice back to the sector. As we now have over 3,000 newsrooms and contributors, FE Voices are usually thought leadership articles, they don’t necessarily have to be exclusive, but usually are, they are slightly shorter than Main Features. FE Voices can include more mixed media with the Further Education News articles, such as embedded podcasts and videos. Our sector response articles asking for different comments and opinions to education policy announcements or responding to a report of white paper are usually held in the FE Voices section. If we have a live podcast in an evening or a radio show such as SkillsWorldLive radio show, the next morning we place the FE podcast recording in the FE Voices section.

Sector News

In sector news we have a blend of content from Press Releases, education resources, reports, education research, white papers from a range of contributors. We have a lot of positive education news articles from colleges, awarding organisations and Apprenticeship Training Providers, press releases from DfE to Think Tanks giving the overview of a report, through to helpful resources to help you with delivering education strategies to your learners and students.


We have a range of education podcasts on FE News, from hour long full production FE podcasts such as SkillsWorldLive in conjunction with the Federation of Awarding Bodies, to weekly podcasts from experts and thought leaders, providing advice and guidance to leaders. FE News also record podcasts at conferences and events, giving you one on one podcasts with education and skills experts on the latest strategies and developments.

We have over 150 education podcasts on FE News, ranging from EdTech podcasts with experts discussing Education 4.0 and how technology is complimenting and transforming education, to podcasts with experts discussing education research, the future of work, how to develop skills systems for jobs of the future to interviews with the Apprenticeship and Skills Minister.

We record our own exclusive FE News podcasts, work in conjunction with sector partners such as FAB to create weekly podcasts and daily education podcasts, through to working with sector leaders creating exclusive education news podcasts.

Education Video Interviews

FE News have over 700 FE Video interviews and have been recording education video interviews with experts for over 12 years. These are usually vox pop video interviews with experts across education and work, discussing blue sky thinking ideas and views about the future of education and work.


FE News has a free events calendar to check out the latest conferences, webinars and events to keep up to date with the latest education news and strategies.

FE Newsrooms

The FE Newsroom is home to your content if you are a FE News contributor. It also help the audience develop relationship with either you as an individual or your organisation as they can click through and ‘box set’ consume all of your previous thought leadership articles, latest education news press releases, videos and education podcasts.

Do you want to contribute, share your ideas or vision or share a press release?

If you want to write a thought leadership article, share your ideas and vision for the future of education or the future of work, write a press release sharing the latest education news or contribute to a podcast, first of all you need to set up a FE Newsroom login (which is free): once the team have approved your newsroom (all content, newsrooms are all approved by a member of the FE News team- no robots are used in this process!), you can then start adding content (again all articles, videos and podcasts are all approved by the FE News editorial team before they go live on FE News). As all newsrooms and content are approved by the FE News team, there will be a slight delay on the team being able to review and approve content.
