Studying at LSE has helped me to expand both my personal and intellectual horizons. LSE is a small international community that offers the facilities for everyone to find and share their interests. The MSc Risk and Stochastics is a good vehicle for people who come from quantitative backgrounds and want to work in the financial or insurance industries. After obtaining a BSc in Mathematics, I needed to know how the theories apply in reality. This MSc, with its broad agenda that covers most of the maths and statistics that are crucial for a professional who works in the markets to understand, was just what I needed. LSE has an extraordinary market reputation that makes any ambitious student want to join it. I applied to LSE because I knew it would provide me with a solid background and increase my chances in launching a high calibre professional career. I especially enjoy the public lectures, careers events and conferences where you get to meet the most interesting people from all over the world, listen to their speeches and learn from their experiences.
