I am amazed how much progress can be attained during a one year Masters at Durham. A particular highlight was writing my dissertation, where I can clearly see my development and broader understanding of the technicalities involved while conducting research, but also delivering a comprehensive analysis of a topic relevant to my field. I have been awarded a CFA Program Student Scholarship and my plan is to undertake the Level 1 exam in May 2022, whilst starting a career in investment banking.
The Business School offers lots of support around careers including hosting interesting talks with people who work in the finance industry. This allowed me to gain a better understanding of what I would like to do after leaving Durham. I am very fortunate to be starting a job in investment banking.
