Imperial College Business School’s Full-Time MBA ranks 1st globally for women working in finance

Imperial College Business School’s Full-Time MBA has been recognised by the Financial Times as the world’s top programme for female graduates working in finance. This position was determined by the Financial Times in their 2018 Top MBA’s for Finance rankings.

The Full-Time MBA programme also placed 24th overall globally and 5th in Europe within the rankings.  

Leila Guerra, Associate Dean of Programmes at Imperial College Business School said;

“This ranking is recognition of Imperial College Business School’s core strengths and intellectual leadership in finance reflected in our research and teaching. It reflects the huge strides the Business School has made in accelerating the careers of our female MBA students, including those seeking to progress in the world of finance.”

This new ranking is based on responses of graduates working in finance three years after completing their MBA programmes, on a range of subjects including salary.

Professor Franklin Allen, Executive Director of the Brevan Howard Centre for Financial Analysis at Imperial College Business School said;

“This is an excellent result for both the Business School and our Full-Time MBA programme. The finance sector is male dominated, but by supporting the new generation of female professionals in their studies at Imperial College Business School, it encourages greater diversity in the City and elsewhere.”

This ranking reinforces Imperial’s recent success in achieving equal numbers of male and female students on its MSc Finance programme for the first time, coinciding with the programme’s 20th anniversary this year.

It also highlights the success of events including the Future of Finance conference and the Imperial Business in the City lecture series which have continued to forge new links between Imperial College Business School, the City of London and the global finance industry.
