I am grateful for the opportunity to study in an academically recognized master program, while pursuing my career as consultant at the same time. What makes the Master in Finance program at GBS unique are inspiring professors, visiting lectures held by well-known finance experts as well as other exceptional minds contributing to promoting the multiple facets of Finance. An enjoyable learning environment is not only given by outstanding facilities on the most beautiful campus, but also by the strong solidarity within our course and the trustworthy relation to the faculty members, which ensures a familiar setting. The program requires high effort, but the outcome is remarkable – not only from a career perspective but also in terms of personal growth.
