Student Profile(s)

John Harrington, MSc in Finance Graduate

Many people take a narrow view on the word ‘investment’, but for me the MSc Finance has been my best investment to date. Engaging and prominent lecturers do not only match the reputation of the programme, but the knowledge being passed on is consistently allowing students to meet their career ambitions.

Not only have many colleagues complimented the range and depth of the programme’s curriculum, the potential to become involved in extra-curricular activities is superb. For example, the CFA Research Challenge and the Trinity Student-Managed Fund both provide students with invaluable access to industry mentors, and the sort of experience that employers are increasingly looking for.

Having studied Corporate Law prior to the programme, I also benefitted from the flexible admissions policy. Most people find that success on the course depends on each person’s desire to learn rather than necessarily having a particular mathematical or finance orientated background. The mix of students from many different disciplines is testament to this. This way of thinking ensures each student’s contribution is uniquely different, which leads to exciting classroom discussion and coursework. While hard work is certainly required, you are given the tools and resources to succeed.
