Nationality: Serbian
Programme: MSc Finance with Specialisms

If you are interested in finance and/or business, there is no better place to start your career than in London. The city is a European financial, cultural and multinational hub. As a student, you get to experience a huge range of different cultures and history, and gain friends from all over the world.

The combination of theory along with so much practical experience on the MSc Finance with Specialisms gave me a very good grounding for my career. Also the support and friendships I had at Regent’s made that year of studying amazing.

Your career should be in something that truly interests you. No matter how hard it may seem now, it eventually pays off if you are working towards your final goal. Finance is very challenging, but motivating at the same time. People who are successful live the industry day-in, day-out.

Studying at Regent’s gave me the opportunity to combine and showcase the theoretical knowledge and experience I had gained before joining the Uni. This was a perfect introduction to my future career.

I am currently working as an associate team leader at Bloomberg Intelligence, an industry research arm of Bloomberg LP. I work on research into the luxury goods and personal-care industries.
