Thanks to the various modules I took...and the multiple speakers we had the chance to welcome in the Business School, I became more and more drawn to fintech. It became obvious to me that this was exactly what I wanted: a mix between Finance (my background) and Technology (my newly acquired skillset).

It is definitely beneficial to live in London. During the autumn term, banks organised numerous networking events for students and I was able to attend more than 15 events because I live in London. I also believe there are more career opportunities in London than in any other city in Europe because it is the financial hub of the region.

Studying at Imperial was an incredible experience. My studies really helped me understand the basics of business, particularly fundraising and the financial decisions involved in running a small business.
