After having undertaken a couple of internships within Investment Banking, I had developed an interest in Corporate Finance, and realised that what I craved was a deeper theoretical understanding of the financial concepts I had been exposed to. I knew that the MSc Finance and Accounting would provide both a solid grounding in valuation and corporate finance, whilst also allowing me to explore interests within Markets and Securities.
I chose Imperial College Business School for three main reasons: the rigorous/quantitative nature of the course, the wide range of electives available, and the location. The course at Imperial offers more contact hours than other top Finance related MSc programmes, with plenty of practical elements to help solidify the theoretical concepts. Moreover, with a choice of approximately fifteen electives ranging from Mergers and Acquisitions to Advanced Financial Statistics, I knew Imperial would allow me the flexibility to specialise in my interests. Lastly, I was keen to experience student life in London, renowned both for its vibrant social scene and financial hub status.
