"The MSc International Finance and Economic Policy programme offers you an interdisciplinary training in the fields of economics and finance. I consider this to be the greatest strength of this programme because it clearly expands your career horizons."
Kayode Adepegba, 2007/08
In the foreseeable future, I would like to be a finance manager, in the region of pure corporate finance and taking courses, particularly in International Corporate Finance, International Financial Management and Financial Sector Stability and Growth, have given some guiding light.
I’m appreciative to Economics for holding this programme jointly with Accounting and Finance. It is one that fulfils the needs of students wishing to lean in either direction, in my case finance, whilst still gaining some important knowledge in economic issues.
While so much may not be known before attending any chosen degree, over the course of the entire programme, it’s important that every student find outs which aspects of the degree, with respect to course choices, that satisfy their interest; such will, even in the smallest way, contribute to the next step on their career path."
