Want to work in investment banking? It helps if you have attended one of these universities? In the UK, think Oxbridge, LSE, Imperial College and other redbrick universities.
If you went to university in the UK and have ambitions to work in ‘finance’ more generally, we have a new ranking for you. And the results are a little less obvious.
LinkedIn has scoured its database to work out which UK universities’ alumni now work in the financial sector. The results are not entirely self-evident – LBS tops the list, but Cass Business School, Cranfield University, the University of Warwick and Said Business School also make the top five. The suggestion, therefore, is that either a post-graduate education or an MBA are highly beneficial to a career in the financial sector. The full list is available here. The top ten is below.
|1. London Business School|
|2. Cass Business School|
|3. Cranfield University - Cranfield School of Management|
|4. University of Warwick - Warwick Business School|
|5. University of Oxford - Said Business School|
|6. Manchester Business School|
