Specializations

As an Accountant I am indeed somewhat unusual amongst the QFin graduates. However, with increasing complexity in the financial industry, the interconnection of various functions within a banking group becomes inevitable and challenges us every day. A profound understanding of financial instruments and markets is the foundation stone of every career in finance. QFin is a tailor made program that equipped me with what I needed in this regards – including some built-in life lessons about the importance of cooperative work and team play.
