Student Profile(s)

Nazeema Derbas

I chose to study at the Business School because the MSc Financial Analysis and Fund Management programme was very different to many others I saw in the field of finance. As well as studying for my MSc I also had the opportunity to work towards Levels I and II of the CFA examinations. This means in the span of 12-months I will graduate with a degree, whilst being part way through a second qualification which I feel has greatly enhanced my employability.

The teaching at Exeter has been second to none, the lectures are challenging and encompassed all the knowledge I needed for a career in the financial industry. A module I particularly enjoyed was ‘Financial Modelling’ as this gave us the opportunity to create and analyse portfolios, providing a more practical understanding of what we were studying and how to create something we would be using day-to-day in a career.

A highlight of the course has been the opportunity to partake in the Business School’s Ethics Challenge, which was sponsored by P1 Management, a local investment company, and judged by experts from the CFA institute and Business School academics. This was a great opportunity to apply the knowledge gained from my studies on ethics and analyse a case study. As part of the process I had to write a 1,500 word essay on my findings and then present my case to the panel of four judges. I am thrilled to have won the challenge, as this is something I can bring to interviews and it will enhance to my CV, in addition to my MSc.. The challenge is open to all finance students at the University and I would highly recommence you take part, it is a great experience.

I was also very lucky to be awarded the Global Excellence Scholarship in addition to a CFA exam scholarship which was a great achievement. The scholarship has been very helpful as it has not only taken an edge off financing a Masters, it has reassured me that I have worked hard to be here and that the grades I have achieved really mean something. I will always cherish making it here and being able to study abroad at an excellent establishment.
