This is my first time in Edinburgh. Before I arrived here for my Masters course, Edinburgh was just a name on the world map. Having been here for a few weeks, I have fallen in love with the city and it never ceases to surprise me. Here are my observations from my first few weeks in Edinburgh.
We’re delighted that the Masters in Management at the University of Edinburgh has climbed to a new position in the 2016 Financial Times rankings.
The QS World University Rankings 2016 have arrived, and we’re delighted that the University of Edinburgh has been ranked in the world top 20.
I hope this post will inspire you to take part in the opportunity to improve your skills and contribute to society. My year in Edinburgh has been intense and demanding but I do not regret anything. The experience as part of this project has contributed a lot to making me the better person I am today. It was worth it!
During semester one of my masters degree, we had a course called “Financial Markets” where we learnt about the market for research in finance, and the growth of independent research providers. So when the Student Development Team offered us an opportunity to get involved with one of the independent research providers, I thought this would be a great chance to see how the things we learnt in semester one are applied in practice.
We’re excited to share the winners of the School’s Excellence in Teaching Awards for 2015/16 and also the new School Award for Best Personal Tutor.
The digital sector changes at such a speed it can be hard to keep up – so the 2016 DIBI (Design It Build It) Conference in Edinburgh was a wonderful opportunity to hear about the latest trends from top digital professionals.
Some of my top tips to help you settle into Edinburgh University Business School life.
Our trip to Frankfurt was definitely a meaningful one. The delicious food we ate, the tasteful drink we drank, the great experience we had, the practical knowledge we learned and the friendly people we met in Frankfurt will all without doubt stay with us for a long time.
Participating in a trip such as the Frankfurt trek can benefit students in many ways. Following the 5 days spent in Germany, I considered the key highlights of this venture to be the material covered in the lectures, the quality of lecture delivery, the things we learnt on our visits to the European Central Bank and the Frankfurt Stock Exchange and the professional network which I grew.
