Doctoral researcher (2013 - 2018)
Having already done a Masters in Finance and Economics at WBS, I was very confident about the high quality of teaching and research that prevailed at the school. Hence, post my masters, a PhD in Finance here was an obvious choice. From day one until now (which is three years into research), the doctoral programme has surpassed all of my expectations. The core training in the first year was very useful in strengthening my quantitative and research skills, and the programme has given me several opportunities to attend conferences abroad and interact with academics from other universities.
I find the research environment at WBS very inspiring, where collaboration with supervisors and attending research seminars form an integral part of our daily activities. Also, the community of doctoral students here is very diverse and close-knit, and is buzzing with coffees and dinners, which makes doing research even more fun.
