    I found the whole idea of the MSc very enticing

    Following my BSc in Economics and Management I started my MSc in Finance this year. The programme offers more than just statistics. It also looks at theoretical aspects, for example the structure and valuation of companies. You learn how industry really works.

    I found the whole idea very enticing. I could have opted for the MSc in Risk & Portfolio Management, but I decided it was too specialized. RPM is particularly interesting if you want to focus more on portfolio investments. The MSc programme is a lot more demanding than the BSc: you need to work hard to do it in one year. What I particularly like is the fact that you can now specialize in the area that you are good at. The optional subjects allow you to decide which way to go. For example, I opted for a subject that revolves around analyzing banking risks. My ambition is to work in a particular financial post, and eventually I hope to find a job with a bank.

    "Despite my interest in finance I started in a management job as I am currently a 'Retail Talent' at Ahold."

    "This Master's programme provides you with an optimal mix of theoretical and practical knowledge and therefore gives you excellent exit options after your studies. The MSc in Finance is known as a challenging programme that is highly valued by the labour market. Besides my studies I was involved in organizing several finance-related events for the RISK financial study association and took part in the RISK investment team.

    Despite my interest in finance I started in a management job as I am currently a 'Retail Talent' at Ahold. In spite of no direct link between my studies and my current job I am sure that my background in Finance will in one way or another be of value to me and Albert Heijn. Without a doubt, I would make the same choice if I had to choose again."
