“I completed my Chartered Company Secretary qualification in India in 2017 and worked in one of the Top 500 Listed Companies and in a Systemically Important Financial Institution in India as their Company Secretary. While I was working as the Company Secretary, I had hands-on experience in managing various restructuring projects and equity raise transactions involving PE investors from multiple jurisdictions. During this process, I realized that legal knowledge coupled with strong commercial acumen was extremely important to create a niche in the corporate space. I started to explore courses offered by leading universities and came to know about the interdisciplinary course in Law and Finance offered by the School of Law, TCD in collaboration with Trinity Business School.

This program was a perfect choice for my professional interest for two reasons. Firstly, the program allowed me to study a range of modules such as Corporate Finance, Corporate Governance, EU Financial Services Laws, Regulation of Alternative Investment Funds, Mergers & Acquisitions and Venture Capital, which in turn helped me comprehend the regulatory regime in Ireland and the EU as a whole while enabling me to understand the commercial sense behind a corporate transaction. Secondly, the program had candidates from different walks of life and from different ethnic groups, which in turn enhanced the quality of learning by providing a wider spectrum of opinions and expertise. Furthermore, the lecture sessions were highly interactive and the lecturers provided us with thought-provoking and invaluable insights into financial and regulatory matters.

Overall, I would like to conclude by saying that Trinity is fantastic in terms of diversity and academic standards and I am extremely honored and elated to have been a part of the maiden batch of the MSc Law and Finance program. With this kind of impact and outreach, I am sure the course would benefit the students enrolling and the market that’s waiting to absorb them, rendering a win-win situation. It is needless to again emphasis that I would certainly recommend this course to those who like to excel.”
