“What attracted me to the NUS MSc in Finance programme was the opportunity to learn finance in an Asian context while being situated in one of the financial hubs of the world. The programme allows students to develop a sound financial base through a combination of class lectures, discussions, projects and cases, all of which provide a good foundation to enter the ever-changing financial sector. This journey has allowed me to further develop my network, particularly in Asia. I look forward to the NUS MSc in Finance family growing in the years to come.”
