MSc Business & Finance

My decision to pursue an MSc course in Financial Management was triggered by my internship experience in Kazakhstan’s public joint stock companies. I was particularly eager to explore capital budgeting and the financial decisions of firms. I aspire to build a career in financial management consulting which motivated me to apply for the MSc Business with Financial Management course at WBS.

The positive learning environment created at WBS allows for a friendly environment where students can contribute to lively exchanges of ideas and opinions.  I perceive study at WBS as an opportunity to gain a profound understanding of Finance and at the same time exchange information with my international colleagues. Being surrounded by such intelligent and hard-working peers is a truly motivating and engaging learning process.

MSc Business & Finance

I was attracted to WBS and in particular the MSc Business & Finance course because of the opportunity to choose between the traditional dissertation route specialising in a Finance related research topic for my future career, or, alternatively, following the Business in Practice route.

The support offered by the CareersPlus Team is really helpful. They helped me to transform my CV and the careers fairs they organise for Chinese students both on campus and in Shanghai really demonstrates the amount of effort that they put into supporting students.

When I first came to WBS, I wanted the year to be transformative for me as an individual as well as an intellectual experience. I wanted to expand my knowledge, my beliefs to be challenged and my worldview to be moulded.To make the most of your experience I would recommended joining societies, attending events and making full use of all the great facilities WBS has to offer!

The MSc Business (Financial Management) programme has been an amazing experience so far. I have had the opportunity to meet lots of new people from various parts of the world and participate in university wide events as a student ambassador.

The CareerPlus team at WBS have helped me in creating an excellent CV, have provided workshops to develop my interview and networking skills and have also allowed me to gain insights into various finance jobs like Investment Banking – where I had the chance to be a trader for the day!

Studying at postgraduate level is quite intense and is a world away from undergraduate study. However, the lecturers, friends and the excellent support system on offer at WBS has made it a rewarding experience for me so far.

Given the School’s outstanding reputation I had no doubt that the MSc Business (Financial Management) programme at WBS would amplify the knowledge that I had previously acquired during my undergraduate studies in Mathematics and Business Economics.

So far, WBS has exceeded all my expectations. The modules are taught by a world-class teaching staff who are dedicated to the highest academic standards in teaching and who incorporate the latest developments in research and industry know-how into each lecture. Practical insight is also given by guest speakers from a range of leading organisations which has allowed me to sharpen my perception of both Capital and Money Markets.

Apart from my interest in Finance, it was the programme structure that attracted me to WBS. There aren't a lot of business schools which allow you to pick between an alternate career enhancing route and the traditional dissertation route.

The best part about studying at WBS is the academic and career support you receive. All the professors are highly qualified and approachable. Also, the careers team dedicated only for WBS students is undoubtedly resourceful and helpful.

I genuinely believe I'm growing a lot as a student while learning alongside people from seven different nationalities and attending many career and intellectual events organised by the school.
