what does "pre-experience" signify here ? Are these curses meant for freshers only ?

Also LBS is not in the list....

Pre-experience means that these programs don't require work experience, or as little as under a year.
LBS is not in the ranking since their Ms in Finance program requires at least 2yrs of experience.
These pre-experience degrees will help you go faster on the corporate ladder, or place you in a better job.

The FT rankings are pretty weak, but a good start. I think they discount the continental European programs in favor of UK programs. The criteria to be ranked knocked out many great programs also.

after checking out this ranking I'm facing a dilemma whether a Ms in Finance or Ms in Management (namely, at LBS) would be a better option to obtain a good job offer.
and also, HEC Paris has two Ms in Finance, one Intl Finance - another Ms in Finance (business track). does the ranking account for both or just the Intl one?!

London Business School's Masters in Finance was ranked No 1 in the FT's post-experience rankings:

The Financial Times’ inaugural rankings were split into pre- and post-experience programme, and London Business School is the only leading business school to have made it into this year’s post-experience ranking – 11 institutions were shortlisted but only three were directly comparable in terms of the type of programme offered.

Estrella Frutos, Programme Director, Masters in Finance (MiF), said: “It is fantastic to be publicly recognised as the best post-experience Masters in Finance by the FT. It acknowledges the strength of our School as a leading finance academic centre, which has been made possible thanks to our world-class faculty who produce outstanding research while at the same time being incredibly gifted professors.

“This, coupled with our privileged position at the heart of a global financial centre and our ability to attract the best finance professionals in the world, explains the success of our MiF programme.”
