The Financial Times has placed the MA in International Economics and Finance at Brandeis International Business School (IBS) among the top 10 U.S. programs for the sixth year in a row in its ranking of pre-experience masters in finance programs. The school was ranked second overall in the United States and first in the country for its percentage of female faculty and students. 

The Master of Arts in International Economics and Finance (MA) program at Brandeis IBS is known for its unique curricular approach to the global economy and its financial markets. For the third year in a row, the school performed above average in the area of “Aims Achieved,” demonstrating that Brandeis IBS alumni feel that obtaining the MA degree allowed them to fulfill their goals. For the second year in a row, the school’s gender balance shone as an important facet of the school’s identity. Brandeis IBS was top in the U.S. for both percentage of female faculty (35%) and percentage of female students (58%).

“The ranking by the Financial Times of our MA in International Economics and Finance is a strong reflection of the education and overall experience that we provide to our students,” said Dean Bruce Magid, P’15. “Our graduates are World Ready, which means being equipped with the knowledge and skills to contribute to the global companies and institutions they join from day one.” 

Also of note was the success of students in the MA program in securing internships as part of their course of study. The Brandeis IBS Career Strategies Center works closely with students and employers to create smart, meaningful connections. Strategic internship placements help students hone their skills while learning firsthand from top employers in the fields in which they wish to work.
