Student Profile(s)

Aleksis Razmuss

I have long aspired to be a student at LSE, which is a truly outstanding academic institution. It equips students with knowledge, skills and importantly – also the mindset, necessary to succeed in today's turbulent times and the tough job market. Moreover, its urban location in the heart of Europe's capital makes it unique, offering the vibrant lifestyle of a Londoner, exceptional links with employers and a truly multi-cultural perspective. The blend of knowledge, experiences, relationships and career opportunities I have gained during my programme have made me realise - nothing is impossible.

I would like to thank everyone at Deutsche Bank and LSE who made possible this scholarship, which now also includes a mentorship scheme and internship opportunities. I think it is a truly exceptional initiative, which hopefully, will continue to exist and have a tremendous impact in the coming years.

Banking is now at a difficult time: operation and regulatory costs are increasing; profit margins are decreasing due to lack of economic activity. The conventional business area has undergone huge changes. The sector now requires the advantages of new technologies and IT.

I chose LSE due to its reputation, career prospects and professional environment. I wouldn’t have missed my LSE experience for anything!

Tiberio Guidolin

When deciding which Master's programme to pursue, I focused on three main criteria: the quality of the course; the reputation of the school; and the quality of the alumni network. The MSc Finance at LSE ranked top on all three aspects. The School's reputation, particularly the Department of Finance, is highly regarded by industry professionals - a factor which definitely played a role in enhancing my employability prospects, having been offered internship opportunities within banking and consulting.

After the programme, I will be a Summer Analyst at JP Morgan's Equity Research division, before joining the Boston Consulting Group as a Visiting Associate in the Milan office.

One of the biggest highlights for me has been that all our professors are willing to go that extra mile to ensure that every student has a thorough coneptual understanding of the material taught, and are always willing to provide any additional support. I have found that the Department genuinely cares.

To any prospective student, I would like to say that this Department and the School provides you with a treasure-trove of resources, be it academic support, pastoral support, or career support - make good use of them!

Osama Abulkheir

The MSc Finance programme at LSE is globally renowned which is reflected in the rigorous course material and the lecturers. Whether you want to land a job, deep-dive into the discipline of Finance, or simply meet like-minded people, I would definitely recommend it.

After graduation I will be joining the Sales & Trading Graduate position at Barclays in London.
