"Trinity was an experience I will never forget. I would highly recommend Trinity Business School to anyone that wants to pursue a Master Degree in Financial Risk Management. The relative small size of the class, coupled with the devotion our lecturers gave us throughout the year was an essential component to the success of my degree. The course offered the opportunity to work as part of a group as well as develop our own knowledge of the different elements of financial risk one can meet in a corporate environment. Trinity also offered to its students a wide range of sports and societies that helped us create our own network based on similar interests and enjoy even more being part of Trinity's community. I am now working in one of the World’s top banks in the Financial Risk Management sector, an opportunity I might never have had without studying the MSc Financial Risk Management programme at Trinity Business School."
