Degree studied: MSc Investment Analysis

Aston has provided a well-rounded experience which has enabled me to gain the most out of my course. The dedicated trading room in particular was a great new addition providing a great environment to put theory into practice. We were also encourage to complete additional qualifications such as the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) Level 1 examination, alongside other trading certifications which are recognised by many employers.
