Kipkoech Rutto | Kenya | MS Fin 21

January 17, 2021

"With a bachelor's degree in actuarial science and four years’ experience in the insurance industry, I decided to pursue a master's degree in finance to broaden my skills especially in investment, risk and asset management, and to earn how to utilize data analysis tools such as R, Python, VBA, SQL and Tableau in a corporate setting. High-quality courses, professors from top universities, and the opportunity to be part of a diverse community of students and alumni motivated me to join CEU.

Professors and admin staff are very supportive and relate with students on a personal level, making studying enjoyable. CEU is highly ranked and among the best universities in Central Europe with state-of-the-art auditoriums, lecture halls and study rooms. It provides an environment conducive to learning.

The program will allow me to graduate with a U.S. degree as well as a Hungarian certificate. It is also moulding me into becoming an all-rounded financial expert. I was able to receive financial aid that made it possible for me to be part of this great institution."
