Gregorio's Story

When Gregorio left his native country of Italy to study for a degree, he wanted to come to a small university, and Stirling fitted the bill.

He chose to study Economics and Finance because this matched his skills and he felt it would offer him good career prospects.

To improve his employability prospects, he did professional qualifications – including the Investment Management Certificate – and worked part-time as a chef.

He also participated in the Alumni Mentoring Scheme, working in the Credit Team at Hermes Investment Management.

In his last year, he took part in an AmplifyME Trading Boot Camp and was selected by the head trader to attend an assessment centre with the Brokerage firm TP ICAP. As a result of this, he has been offered a job as a trainee broker.

“The opportunities I was offered to improve my skills and employability, such as the mentor programme and AmplifyME, really positions Stirling as peerless,” said Gregorio.   

“Lecturers at the university are very approachable and provide you with the support needed to achieve strong results.

“What really had an impact on me was my mentor who still gives me very valuable advice and helped me with making important decisions.”
