Student Profile(s)

Esha Mendiratta

I joined CeFiMS two years after I started working for Towers Watson as an undergraduate with a degree in economics. The curriculum provided me with a strong base in economics and finance, which helped me advance in my professional career.

The courses have solid theoretical content covering a variety of subjects like econometrics, bank financial management, corporate governance and quantitative methods. It also draws on current practices and developments to give students a holistic view of the subjects. The programme encourages interaction between students; the tutors are very helpful and quick to provide guidance.

I believe this programme is designed perfectly for people already working in the financial industry, who either want to develop skills to progress in their careers or update their knowledge in the field. Overall, the experience of studying at CeFiMS was academically challenging and very rewarding.
