How to Get the Most Out of Your MSc Finance Journey

Back

Students attend business schools for various reasons. For me, besides studying, the whole experience is important. So far, in my MSc Finance journey at Beedie, I have honed my skills in teamwork, interviewing, understanding the market, and getting hands-on experience in investment management.

The MSc Finance program gave me the technical foundation that I couldn’t function without. I work with clients in very senior roles, and it’s important to demonstrate your technical knowledge to gain their trust.
