(Student Profile)

Kirstin Enright

The wide range of analytical techniques that I was taught throughout the MSc IAS gave me the opportunity to apply for a wide range of jobs and was a key factor in helping me get the job that I wanted.

I managed to find a job before I had completed the MSc course and I do not feel that I would have had the same opportunities had I not done the IAS MSc.
