HEC Paris yet again maintained its first position in the ranking, like it has for years. The 3rd place was also taken by the French: SKEMA Business School, with which Kozminski has a double degree program in finance.
According to the graduates and current students of this faculty, the Master in Finance & Accounting program at Kozminski University is truly exceptional. They combine a high level of education, confirmed by the highest rating of the Polish Accreditation Committee, with a modern set of tools for a today's specialists in finance.

They can also obtain international certificates and professional qualifications from such organizations as the CFA Institute, ACCA, CAIA Association (which associates alternative investment professionals), GARP (Global Association of Risk Professionals). These institutions have accredited the program and constantly work closely together with its leaders on the curriculum of studies. The partners of the program are: KPMG, Santander, Accenture Operations, Citi. Additionally, people while studying in Poland have the opportunity to complete a semester at one of our three foreign partner universities, obtaining a second diploma - apart from the mentioned SKEMA Business School, also from ESSCA School of Management and FEP University of Porto.
- This is an extremely attractive program for Polish and international students, especially since obtaining similar qualifications in business schools in Western Europe or the United States is associated with many times higher costs. Finance has always been an elite field of study - says Prof. Grzegorz Mazurek, Rector-Elect of Kozminski University.
There are already 1.5 thousand foreigners from more than 70 countries studying at Kozminski University. They choose this university because of its strong international position: its international accreditations AACSB, EQUIS and AMBA, as well as high positions in the "Financial Times" rankings.
- Every year, the Master in Finance & Accounting program is taken up by very interesting people. They are seriously interested in modern finances, some of them have already completed internships in various international institutions. Most of the lecturers are young people who, like the students, are fascinated by new technologies. Probably that is why we managed to smoothly switch to the online education system, forced by the global pandemic. We have made all the tools remotely available to students and even added free subscriptions to Polish and foreign economic newspapers. We have the last exams ahead of us, which this year - exceptionally - will take place online. We are ONLINE READY, and we are prepared to conduct the winter semester of studies in the same mode, if necessary - says Prof. Jacek Tomkiewicz, Dean of the College of Finance and Economics at Kozminski University.
Western Europe with French, British and Swiss universities dominated this year's Global Master in Finance Ranking. In the USA, a master's degree in finance is worth taking at the famous MIT (8th place). Despite the huge funds for higher education that China currently has at its disposal, only four universities have made it to the ranking. Everything seems to indicate that it is up to the recent graduates of European universities, including KU, to fix the world of finance ruined by the pandemic.
