Coming from a BSc in Economics and Business Finance, I initially thought this MSc would be unsuitable for someone with my background. However, I quickly realized this program is truly dedicated to all students that have a passion for Mathematics and would like to improve their analytical and quantitative skills.
Thanks to the advice and support of the academic and departmental staff, I ended up having a great year at LSE. I chose courses that were appropriate to my knowledge of Mathematics such as game theory and continuous time optimization, which I also used for my dissertation. Moreover, thanks to the option of taking extra-departmental courses, I also attended two modules of advanced corporate finance, in line with my previous studies.
In the end, I think this MSc overcame my expectations. On top of improving my knowledge in Mathematics, it also gave me skills that will surely open new opportunities in life, either within the academic or professional environment.
On graduation I found work in an Investment Bank in London in the corporate finance department.
