  13. Hi,

    The best unis for Masters in finance in order as per the latest rankings:
    LSE,LSBF, Warwick, Durham, Burmingham, Lancaster, Edinburg, Exeter, Imperial,Manchester.

    Most of them do not require a GMAT, but having it can cover some of the loopholes you might have. Work ex not required, but its a big ace if you have relevant work ex. A domestic masters could also be a big boost. BUT AN IELTS OF 7 AND ABOVE IS A MUST.

    • Hi!
      I am studying at Uni of Exeter, doing bachelor degree in Finance and Accounting. What I can tell u that the uni is quite good,according to recent rankings Exeter was ranked as top uni in the UK. I just wanted to say my opinion regarding u list of unis u provided. I agree on all of them, as I researched a lot before joining uni, but I can tell u for sure that LSBF is crap. This a money making uni and this uni usually accept those who couldn’t join any other uni. I know this as there many people who study there and say that. Its not even uni, its like a college to be honest…..and regarding IELTS 7…this uni doesn’t require that. They may do that officially, but they will accept u in most cases.

  14. hey, can u pls tell me best places for masters in finance in us n australia which require no work ex…..and wghat are d mandatory examinations for it when i dont come frm a finance background…thanks

  18. Hi. I have been accepted in 3 universities in UK for the MSc in finance. University of Warwick, University of Edinburgh and University of Bristol. Wich one would you recommend? thanks,

  19. A colleague of mine writes,

    “I don’t know a lot about the current department at Edinburgh (I can find out, if you like) but Warwick and Bristol remain very strong. Bristol also has excellent connections in the City and Bank of England, which assist many of their graduates in gaining subsequent employment. At least they did, prior to the current recession!”

  20. Thanks. However, Edinburgh is much better ranked than Bristol. I will choose between Edinburgh and Warwick. I like the program in Edinburgh, it has more quantitative content. But I heard Warwick is more prestigious. Both universities are CFA partners. Which one do you recommend?

    Thanks,

    • For an MBA with a specialization in finance, the two top ones are probably Wharton and University of Chicago. If you want to do a Master’s degree in Europe, take a look e.g. at University of Cambridge Judge Business Schools’ Master of Finance. Alternatively, Tilburg University in the Netherlands has on of the strongest economics departments in Europe, and they offer some interesting finance programs.

  38. Attn: Aslam

    Aslam, it would be more appropriate for to have a bit of expereince before getting into master program as the attained expereince would rather help you in the masters program in terms of grasping concepts in more realistic way and in addition to it most of the top universities of US,UK and other developed countries prefer students with some expereince.
