Mattia Bongini (Finance '17) has undergraduate and master's degrees in Mathematics from the Universita' degli Studi di Siena and a PhD in Mathematics from the Technical University of Munich.


I chose Barcelona GSE because I was impressed by the faculty and the quality of the lectures. Also being in Barcelona is amazing because of the city, because of the weather, because of the sea, and because of the amazing people that surround you. My group was full of people from very diverse fields, so there was a huge possibility to interact and to exchange opinions and ideas. 

The Master in Finance gave me an invaluable array of statistical tools and financial notions that I employ everyday in my work at the Monetary and Financial Statistics Division of the Directorate General Statistics at ECB. The combination of theoretical knowledge of financial markets and machine learning and the associated technical skills, together with the numerous insights that leading practitioners deliver during the presentations by professionals is what makes this Master really unique.
