"I joined the Investment Analysis program right after my undergraduate degree. I had hoped that this program would provide me with the requisite technical knowledge I required to succeed in the financial services industry, and I wasn't disappointed. In fact, my experience in the University of Stirling involved much more than just a technical degree. The exposure to various nationalities, be it professors or students, proved to be the highlight of my one year on campus. The professors are jovial and helpful, and make learning a delight!
I found the modules to be rigorous, requiring long hours of smart work. However, the MacRobert Centre, with its range of plays and movies, made sure that life in Stirling was much more than just work!
I am now working as an Associate with a financial services firm in Mumbai, India. My responsibilities include financial modeling and investment valuation. I find that the modules I studied in university have a direct relation to industry practices, and I am positive this will help me go a long way in my chosen field."
