Studying at Harvard University might not be the cheapest option for prospective students, but if you’re interested in Accounting & Finance, going there might mean you’ve got plenty of money to count afterwards. The American institution has retained its place at the top of this year’s subject ranking.
The rest of the top ten is near-identical to last year with New York University (NYU) the only new entrant. The US may dominate the top of the rankings, with seven of the top 10 universities, but they’re far from the only country on the list: 33 are represented in total.
