Singapore – For the third time, Singapore Management University’s (SMU) Lee Kong Chian School of Business (LKCSB) has been featured in Financial Times’ (FT) Masters in Finance Pre-experience as well as Post-experience Rankings.

In the 2017 Rankings released by FT in June, the SMU MSc in Wealth Management (MWM) was recognised for the third consecutive year as one of the top three finance master’s programmes in the world by the Financial Times (FT) Masters in Finance Post-experience Ranking 2017. The SMU Lee Kong Chian School of Business remains the only institution in Asia to make it to the ranking, placed just after London Business School and University of Cambridge’s Judge Business School.

The SMU MWM programme has much to be proud of. Alumni of the programme reported a salary of US$104,992, a 15% increase compared to the salary reported in last year’s ranking. LKCSB is also ranked top in careers services support, a recognition of the effectiveness in areas like career counselling, personal development, networking events, and recruitment.

In addition, the business school also ranked 4th among Asian business schools and 44th in the world in the FT Masters in Finance Pre-experience Ranking 2017 for its Master of Science in Applied Finance (MAF). It is also the only institution in Singapore and South-Asia to be ranked.
