Rogerio Saab, Alumnus

The MSc Finance was a great experience. First of all, living in London and having the financial insights that the city provides is really amazing. The lecturers are very knowledgeable and considerate, combining regular lectures with seminars, thus giving a 'real world' sense to the course. I believe the knowledge I acquired developed my skills and prepared me for entry into the finance market

Alumni quote

Sven Christen

I wanted to study a specialised degree rather than a generic finance degree. The focus in the MSc is on banking and the curriculum is moulded around that. I think it would have been a lot harder to apply for jobs with a generic management degree in this economic climate; specialisation is a key attribute.
