MSc Investment Analysis


Studying in Stirling is one of the best experiences to have happened to me.

I chose the MSc Investment Analysis as the course provides an understanding of current and emerging issues in the global financial market and the investment management profession. The course also has CFA Institute Programme Partner status.

The University of Stirling introduced me to individuals from different backgrounds and cultures and gave me the opportunity to learn and share ideas with people from all over the world. The lectures were very interactive and the lecturers always had progress of the students at heart.

The best experience on the course was my participation in the trading boot camp as the experience has boosted my confidence to meet future challenges in my pursuit as a finance and investment professional. Another unforgettable moment was my participation in the CFA Global Research Challenge as part of a team of five. The team represented the University of Stirling in the UK finals. My participation has enhanced my abilities in financial and investment analysis and the writing and presenting of a high quality investment report.

I have gained what I was expecting from an international education and even more as a result of my studies in Stirling. I was always welcomed and greeted with smiles at every area I found myself in Scotland. I recommend the University of Stirling to anyone searching for an institution to pursue higher education. Stirling is indeed home away from home.
