Student Profile(s)

Benjamin Auve

After having graduated with a double MSc in Engineering and Nuclear Science, I decided to embark upon a career in finance, ultimately becoming a quantitative analyst in an investment bank. Enrolling into LSE’s MSc Financial Mathematics was a great choice, both in terms of career, learning and people I met here.

All the courses I took are excellent and require everyone to push further their own capabilities. I was surprised to see how much professors are willing to give of their time to help students understand anything and even to go further in the discussions.

At LSE, I was surrounded by intelligent and humble people from a range of different backgrounds. It creates an amazing environment in which to learn.
