When I introduce myself as an UCL MSc Finance student, I clearly feel external admiration because of the reputation of UCL and competitive candidate selection in the programme. But what about myself?
After two terms, I would say yes as I learn with talents, gain from opportunities, and grow stronger for my early career. The small class size makes me truly feel that I am cared about in the group, and everyone gets the chance to shine! I hope my experience in this new-born programme will help you learn more about it!
Having spent several months studying at University College London, I feel obliged to give the world an update on how UCL truly is. Aside from providing a vast experience, I was surprised to see the level of diversity in the student community. I have never seen such diversity in one area, and did not expect to learn so much from students that represent 80 different countries. In fact, some students are seen working 12-13 hours after class, to deliver their very best in coursework and projects. If that does not count as immense dedication, I don’t know what does!
I am a student currently in my third year of my BSc Information Management for Business degree at UCL’s School of Management and I work part-time (though more often than not it feels like full-time!) as a Business Associate at True AI - a London-based start-up researching and commercialising conversational software using deep learning AI.
In addition to the Tel Aviv Trek, 20 other MSc Entrepreneurship students went to visit Silicon Valley - an area dubbed as the “centre of entrepreneurship” around the world - to learn entrepreneurship from the best representatives of cutting edge startups and venture capital (VC) firms.
UCL School of Management’s BSc Information Management for Business (IMB) students were given the opportunity to learn more about cyber security and data management form Microsoft experts, Ian Farr and Chris Ayres.
The talk was delivered as part of the 2nd year Business in the Digital Age module, which explores the digital transformation of organizations, customers and societies.
