Where better to study than in one of the financial capitals of the world?

I also wanted the opportunity to learn under professors who were using advanced analytical tools and techniques.

One of my favourite moments was when my entire group selected me as their project leader during an assignment we did for the Project Management module.

However, every single day at the campus was full of new experiences, learning and networking.
