Seven British universities are listed among the best in Europe for high-paying jobs in finance, with five of these located in London.

Emolument, the company which collected the data on pay, produced a list of 15 European universities whose finance students were paid the most on average since leaving university in 2011. So while this is not a list of graduate starting salaries, it gives a good indication of what can be achieved in the first few years of your professional career.

Their survey was based on the salary of 700 London finance professionals who graduated from BA, BSc and Masters degrees, but it does not include MBA graduates.

London Business School graduates lead the list for British institutions, with an average salary of £66,000.

Finance graduates from Imperial College London had an average salary of £50,000, with Cass Business School (at City University London) graduates following with £49,000 and Birkbeck, University of London and the London School of Economics and Political Science graduates with £47,000.

London is a global financial centre and it is no surprise that many students wishing to work in finance come to study in London. The finance sector offers a wealth of internship opportunities and part-time jobs which enhance students’ employability prospects.
