"I hold a Bachelor's in Banking and Insurance Systems. Although my passion has always been finance, I have not had the opportunity to work in this field. Hence, I decided to pursue a finance master's to keep me on the right track towards my career goals and to enhance my knowledge in the field. I had done my research and knew that CEU had a reputation for having one of the best finance programs in Europe. I could see that it was full of talented, energetic and success-driven students. It was a no-brainer to choose CEU.

With my cohort, it feels like I am part of one extended family. I have never encountered so many intelligent and talented people before. Everyone in the cohort has a distinctive set of skills and experiences to share. All my professors value meaningful participation, and they have given us various methods to discuss issues or raise questions. They are all approachable, enthusiastic, and eager to assist. There is never a dull moment in class! Thanks to the MS in Finance Head and Corporate Relations Manager, I have come closer to achieving my career goals. I am also profoundly impressed by CEU's flexibility in the light of COVID-19. The quality of education remains unchanged, and the experience is still engaging and unique."
