Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM) was once again ranked as the best school in the Netherlands for Finance and Investments by the Financial Times, reinforcing our strong reputation in research and education rankings.

The FT Masters in Finance ranking is an annual list of the best finance programmes in the world. The ranking is based on both an alumni survey taken three years after graduation as well as data collected from the business school.

RSM’s MSc Finance and Investments programme is ranked as the best in the Netherlands, #27 in Europe and #32 globally.

“This ranking is a testament to the rigorous curriculum and the dedication and excellence of our faculty and students. This recognition underscores our commitment to providing top-tier education and preparing responsible and forward-looking leaders.” said Thomas Lambert, the Academic Director of the MSc in Finance and Investments.

The FT gave the programme high scores for both value for money and international mobility – for many students, finding an impactful degree, and being able to work outside their home country are extremely important outcomes.

According to the survey, 86% of students felt they accomplished their aims, the joint-highest of any institution in the Netherlands.

RSM was also ranked #4 in the world for carbon footprint, demonstrating the school’s actions in delivering on its mission to be a force for positive change.

This demanding one-year full-time MSc in Finance and Investments programme requires a broad-thinking, proactive attitude. The programme deals with financial decision-making from the perspectives of investors and companies and combines a strong academic foundation with close ties to the practice of finance.
