Positives: It is a very hands on way of learning about the finance industry, it offers an in-depth study of analytics and the economy, and is relevant to any finance career which is super helpful for developing knowledge for a career in finance

Negatives: It’s a very dry topic with lots of mathematical aspects which can sometimes be difficult to grasp concepts

My advice to future students is: Prior study of a maths degree or advanced maths is recommended for the study load and sometimes the topics can be very content heavy

Positives: The best aspect is the students you meet during lectures and tutorials. They range from industry level experience to lecture attendees. Regarding the networks you interact, there is opportunity for entrepreneurs to get like minded people working on a common goal.

Negatives: Some of the lecturers are dull and monotone in delivery. They make Finance very mundane and the material is something irrelevant to industry. There is a big mistake with some content in university. Applying study units to industry would lead to irreversible consequences.

My advice to future students is: Keep an open mind regarding content you learn in finance. The market is not perfect. What you learn at university is not fully implemented in financial industry. The most useful things are regulations and ethics. These are perhaps neglected in the curriculum but the content is applicable to industry. Understanding how Basel 3 works for instance is extremely useful when interning at a major multinational investment bank.
