Following its excellent performance in the ranking of the best European business schools, EDHEC has once again made a name for itself in a list published by the Financial Times. In its ranking of the best master’s in finance 2024, published on 17 June 2024, the British daily newspaper ranked EDHEC 6th in the world. EDHEC has moved up 3 places in one year. "This positive trend highlights EDHEC's ongoing efforts to offer innovative and professional finance programmes based on high-quality, relevant teaching.

The Financial Times master’s in finance 2024 ranking highlights several pillars of the student experience: international experience, career support and the services of the Alumni network.

The Financial Times ranks EDHEC's master’s in finance 3rd in the world for 'International course experience' (up 3 places on 2023).

Evaluated by graduates, the 'Career service' criterion measures the effectiveness of the schools' career guidance service in terms of support, personal development, organisation of networking events, internship searches and recruitment. EDHEC is ranked 3rd in France, up 3 places on the 2023 ranking. Recognised for the excellence and personalisation of its services (80% of services are individualised), EDHEC's Career centre has developed the EDHEC Career Booster, a specific support programme that helps students to define and achieve their professional goals.
