According to the Financial Times Global Master Ranking, the USI Master in Finance is among the top 40 in its field. Outperforming other prestigious universities, USI ranks 38th globally, and is third in Switzerland after St. Gallen and Lausanne.

The evaluation is based every year on multiple criteria collected by the Financial Times from the graduates of the various programmes. The USI Master stood out for the career advancements of its graduates, the percentage of students who found an occupation in the field 3 months from graduation, the international mobility of students, and the price-quality ratio.

According to the director of the USI Institute of Finance, Prof. Francesco Franzoni: “The positive outcome is also thanks to the role of scientific research carried out by the faculty who teaches in the Master. Thanks to the cooperation with the Swiss Finance Institute, they are able to provide high quality teaching in the classrooms”.

According to Master director Prof. Alberto Plazzi “The three new tracks within our Master (Quantitative Finance, Banking and Finance, Digital Finance) keep the course offering cutting edge and up-to-date at the pulse of the financial system. All this in a very dynamic university environment, with a student-teacher ratio among the lowest in Europe".
