Omaha, NE (PRWEB) January 25, 2012
In its ranking of the best master’s and MBA programs around the world, Eduniversal has named Creighton University’s Master’s in Security Analysis and Portfolio Management (MSAPM) one of the best finance programs in the world, ranking it at the number 32 position.
Creighton received this honor by scoring well on the three ranking criteria used by Eduniversal: the reputation of the program, salaries of students’ first jobs after graduating, and their overall level of satisfaction.
The Eduniversal ranking further underscores the quality and prestige of Creighton’s programs. The university has been ranked the #1 university in the Midwest by US News & World Report for the past nine years. The magazine also named Creighton the #21 best business school for finance in 2011.
For finance professionals interested in jobs at the highest levels in this competitive field, Creighton’s MSAPM program offers rigorous coursework designed to offer critical, advanced knowledge about investment assessment, security analysis and portfolio management. Creighton is one of only 36 universities in the U.S. that have earned the distinction of being a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA®) Program Partner1 , and the only CFA Program Partner School in the U.S. to offer its program completely online as well as in-residence on campus.
The curriculum of the MSAPM reflects topics covering all three levels of the CFA® exam, offering students the unique opportunity to work towards a prestigious master’s degree while simultaneously preparing for the CFA® exams. Whether or not students decide to pursue this designation, they will receive a high-quality, practitioner-oriented master’s education in finance that provides the extensive knowledge required of savvy investment professionals.
“The global nature of the Eduniversal ranking makes it especially meaningful,” said Randy D. Jorgensen, director of the MSAPM program. “Besides highlighting the value of the MSAPM, it helps publicize the program to finance professionals around the world who are interested in earning a degree that can help them get to the top of their field.”
