Student Profile

I chose Strathclyde Business School as my study destination because the university is a leading international university that makes a positive difference to the lives of its students, society, and the world. They offer a competitive international standard that allows the access to interact with various cultures and business perspectives.

The programme is challenging, yet interesting. The different course modules are designed to equip students with industry skills. The teaching materials for the classes are provided before the start of lectures to help students prepare. Quantitative Methods for Finance is one of my favourite classes because I learned the data analysis skills that were pivotal for the rest of my MSc learning and career. I learned about the finance industry and international markets. One last thing I liked about the structure of the course was the practical use of Bloomberg and the introduction of the Volcube training and Amplify Trading Bootcamp. These platforms and training have been essential to my learning as they gave me an insight into industry skills.

I have always wanted to help businesses grow through the provision of capital. To achieve this, my Bachelor’s degree was not sufficient. Undertaking a finance degree at a university with the reputation of the University of Strathclyde is a stepping stone to steer my career in the right direction. I have been able to obtain relevant skills in asset management, investment bank sales, trading, technical analysis, data analysis, financial analysis, and reporting that will help me assess business needs and provide sound financial advice to help businesses grow.

The University of Strathclyde is the place of useful learning. The classes and course content are tailored to be industry-specific to students. Take note of the Derivatives, Portfolio Management, and Quantitative classes as they provide essential skills that you will always be grateful to have as you progress in your career.

My advice, you are making the right choice to study at the University of Strathclyde. The course content is rich and there is a huge range of resources and support for students. No doubt, it is challenging but it is worth the experience as you will have the opportunity to expand your limits. Glasgow is a vibrant city and there are tons of activities that will help develop learning and cultural integration. Most importantly, enjoy the Strathlife!
