Why a MIF programme?
After my undergraduate education, I felt the need to enrich and deepen my knowledge in the field of finance. I decided that a master’s programme would be the ideal choice. The well-known MIF offers a well-designed practical programme geared towards the needs of the job markets. I am excited at the degree to which my goals and skills align with what the MIF has to offer.
