“Challenging and demanding, the NUS MSc in Finance programme offers me an opportunity to push myself beyond what I thought I was capable of. As the inaugural class, my 14 months in the course included working with multi-cultural teams on real-world problems in corporate finance and investment and also applying data analytics to finance. The knowledge acquired from theory and practical learning experiences, as well as the relationships forged are invaluable in my professional development journey.”
