Why did you choose to study MSc Risk Management and Financial Engineering at Imperial College Business School?

I had been accepted to several colleges across the US and UK to study courses ranging between Financial Engineering to a standard MSc in Accounting. I chose Imperial for its reputation in the engineering sciences across Europe.

 What advice would you give to a prospective student considering studying here?

Do it, it will open all the right doors for you.

How did you benefit from the services provided by the Business School’s Career and Professional Development Services Team?

We did mock assessment centres which were excellent practice to have even before I applied to jobs. I strongly recommend students use the service to its fullest extent and participate in any and all events, assessment centres, CV consultations etc… you never know how that extra effort when it will pay off. But it will!

How do you stay connected with others from your Business School alumni network?

The course was rigorously mathematical and challenging I forged lasting friendships at Imperial that I will take with well into my life.
