After graduating with a Bachelor of Science in 2020 and moving to Frankfurt in the same year, I quickly made the decision to continue my academic career and expand my knowledge. An ever-changing financial world, new career opportunities and the ongoing dynamics in regulation reinforced my desire to expand my knowledge, and I surprisingly quickly decided to pursue this path at GBS . Now that my studies are in their final stages, I can say with certainty that this was an excellent decision for me. In addition to the good balance between work and the weekend lectures, I really appreciated the dedicated professors who enabled a very personal academic exchange. Thanks to the manageable size, numerous nations, cultures and professions united in our class, and I consider myself very grateful for the enriching conversations and friendships that my studies made possible.
