Oxford MSc Financial Economics
Oxford’s MSc Financial Economics (MFE) has maintained its position at number 11 in the Global Masters in Finance pre-experience rankings published today in the Financial Times.
‘I am delighted with our performance, which is supported by a number of great results,’ said Peter Tufano, Dean of Oxford Saïd. ‘In what remains a challenging economic environment, particularly for the banking industry, it’s pleasing to see that salary performance of our alumni improved significantly to place us 5th worldwide. This is supported by our own employment figures which show that students continue to be attractive to the biggest global names in finance.’
The MFE is run jointly by Oxford Saïd’s finance faculty and the University’s Department of Economics, and is designed in consultation with leading financial institutions to ensure it closely matches the needs of the financial community. The School’s latest employment figures show that 82% of the class accepted an offer within 3 months of graduation and found employment at organisations in 16 countries around the world, not only in Investment Banking and Asset Management, but also in consulting. Most of these secured roles Europe (43%) and Asia (43%) reflecting the international diversity of the class.
One of the key strengths of the programme is the Oxford Saïd Finance Lab, an extracurricular programme through which students can meet and learn from senior executives of leading investment banks, gaining invaluable insights and knowledge that enhance their career prospects. As part of the programme MFE students successfully represented the school in a number of banking and real estate challenges.
