Four years ago, a little girl was struggling with her JUPAS choices up until the last minute, feeling extremely lost as she tried to strike a balance between academic work, internships and extracurricular activities. Today this girl is graduating, ready to enter society.
If I were to make my choices again, QFRM would still be my top priority. Although the coursework is demanding, it prepares us with solid analytical and soft skills that are prerequisites for developing a career in finance. One could not get a better mix of training and exposure elsewhere. During the study, I managed to undertake an exchange in the US, complete summer internships in investment banks and a hedge fund and, most importantly, make many lifelong friends who motivated and inspired me all the way through.
Had it not been by the support of the Faculty, my time at university would not have been so fruitful.
