"Trinity business school was the best decision I could have taken, not only from an academic standpoint but most importantly for my personal development. The Masters in Finance helped me to build international relationships, expand my network and make new friends. I must say the Masters degree from TCD was a career enhancement for me as I got a job in Leveraged Finance in less than a month after I submitted my dissertation. I can also highly recommend exploring the college life in Trinity as it offers a great variety of societies and activities amidst its unique campus. Amongst many excellent modules, I must highlight the Private Equity class which I enjoyed the most. The practical and business case-oriented lectures, tutorials and group projects provide all tools necessary to get a job in Finance."

“Many people take a narrow view on the word ‘investment’, but for me the MSc Finance has been my best investment to date. Engaging and prominent lecturers do not only match the reputation of the programme, but the knowledge being passed on is consistently allowing students to meet their career ambitions. Not only have many colleagues complimented the range and depth of the programme’s curriculum, the potential to become involved in extra-curricular activities is superb. For example, the CFA Research Challenge and the Trinity Student-Managed Fund both provide students with invaluable access to industry mentors, and the sort of experience that employers are increasingly looking for. The mix of students from many different disciplines is testament to this. This way of thinking ensures each student’s contribution is uniquely different, which leads to exciting classroom discussion and coursework. While hard work is certainly required, you are given the tools and resources to succeed."
