I chose to study the MSc in Finance because I am interested in the underlying logic of the market. Both the group work and the individual work within the programme are challenging, requiring rigorous analysis and critical thinking when applying theories to practice. My fellow students in the class come from different backgrounds and various countries, which provides a good network for building my future career.
