Having obtained a Bachelor of Commerce (Specialist in Economics) from the University of Toronto, I wanted to specialise completely in finance. The MSc in Finance programme at Lancaster University Management School was just the perfect blend of courses I was looking for. In addition to this, the School's excellent rating in the UK and Europe made my decision easier.
Upon arriving at the campus, I found it to be surprisingly large! With all amenities available on campus, I felt it was a city on its own. The immense diversity of the students that come to Lancaster is one of the most memorable attributes of the University.
The MSc Finance programme at Lancaster offers a vast set of technical skills delivered by highly competent faculty. I found the mix of examinations and coursework truly helped develop the knowledge base required to succeed in any industry. In addition to the completely professional and thorough teaching style at Lancaster, the wide support network available for students is one of the best I have come across.
All in all, Lancaster University is one of the best universities in the country, both socially and academically. I would definitely recommend the MSc in Finance to students looking for the extra edge, and seeking professional refinement! I joined PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP shortly before completing the MSc, and that extra edge surely helped me!
