Interview

"After graduating from BGSE I joined the Bank of England as an analyst in the Markets division where I had previously done an internship. We brief policy makers about current financial conditions ahead of rate decisions and do long term research geared towards implementing monetary policy as efficiently and effectively as possible. A solid understanding of financial economics and coding skills are essential to this job, so when looking at options for postgraduate studies it was important for me to find a program that focuses on teaching both the theory as well as the tools needed to apply it. The finance masters at BGSE offers just that - it integrates not only finance, but also economics and data science modules providing students with a unique flexibility to tailor the degree to their own needs and interests."
