Gianluca Trapani: I mean, it has definitely helped me get the current job I have. It's helped me stand out from the crowd during the interview process and even kind of for a conversation starter. So that's one aspect, I would say kind of from career opportunities. The program will give you a global network of professionals in the field. So you'll meet you'll meet people on the MSCI from finance, from all over the globe. So if you want to move to London, there are going to be people on the course from London. If you want to move to Switzerland, there's going to be people in the course in Switzerland. In my cohort, my intake, there are people from literally all over the world. So from a networking opportunity, I would say that it's amazing. 

Definitely the professors and the industry leading professors and the faculty advocates who are experts in their respective fields offering world class teaching and unrivaled industry connections. The professors are incredibly knowledgeable and dedicated. They're passionate about what they do. And they'll give you the in-depth kind of theoretical aspect of the financial topics, as well as the practical point of view. 

The more you put into the masters, the more you get out of it. I would really focus on topics which you like and enjoy reading about, and you without a doubt be rewarded for this. When it comes to writing your assignments and grading, the professors will notice this. I would say really focus on the programme. It's a great programme and it will fly by. I started in May 21 and I've already completed 9 of 12 modules. Yesterday I just submitted my international banking module taught by Professor Barbara Casu. It's really a great module. I really enjoy doing it. I learned a lot of things, a lot of things that I didn't know about. And today I'm actually starting my asset management module. Looking forward to that. So I would really recommend the programme to anyone looking to do a master's in finance. I would say go for it. There is no better time to invest yourself.
