Student Profile

Goshilla Maroam

I always wanted to study in London as it is a leading global financial centre and a city full of opportunities. While doing my research, I found that the courses offered by the School of Economics and Finance were among the best in the UK. Also, facilities provided by the School such as access to the Bloomberg Terminal, free subscription to publications like Financial Times and networking events with employers from top UK companies acted as a great aid to me.
