SKEMA, one of the top 10 leading business schools worldwide for Finance MSc courses, aims to provide students with a deep understanding of worldwide financial markets.
To help achieve this, an FT Group Subscription is part of their solution.
In their use of the Financial Times, students were introduced to its trusted news, analysis and tools, to help them grasp the complexities of financial markets and connect current events with course principles.
As a result, the FT has helped the school:
- Maintain an international perspective
- Increase the likelihood of improved academic performance across all students
- Get flexible, customised access to key intelligence, relevant to the curriculum and coursework
Overall, the FT is deemed to help improve academic performance and SKEMA found that, of the top 20 most frequent FT readers, 75% were ranked in the top-performing half of the year group, based on their global full year average grades. This indicates that reading the FT might lead to better academic results.
