What did you like about your programme and why?

I chose this program to gain more knowledge and develop my skills in corporate finance, corporate governance, capital markets and financial analysis.

How did the programme support you in your career and personal growth?

The MSc in Finance programme helped me understand more about the financial markets and what is happening in the business world nowadays.

I would like to have an academic career and am therefore planning to continue my studies at HW and further apply to a PhD in finance. My experience with Heriot-Watt has been incredibly positive and I value the professionalism and academic competence of the faculty and appreciate the amazing learning environment the campus offers.

Why is it important that there are people with the expertise/field you chose?

We can´t ignore role of finance in supporting businesses and organisations. The finance programme gives students the academic knowledge they need in order to allow them to think critically and take appropriate financial decisions.
