MA Business with Marketing

Student life here is very engaging and there are so many opportunities available for students, including first year ones! I love how many societies there are to choose from as well as the number of places that you can visit with friends such as Teviot House or even in the school in which you are part of.

Guan You (William) Lee

MA Accounting and Finance (2017)

Associate Consultant, PwC Advisory Services, Malaysia

The international reputation and the diversity of its student community drew me to the University of Edinburgh. I particularly liked the balance between the academic side, where you can build up your technical skills, and the non-academic side, including career networking opportunities.

There were plenty of opportunities to build up my soft skills including leadership and communication skills, and I was able to put these into practice in my role as Business School Council Convenor.

I am currently working as an associate consultant in PwC Malaysia and am also studying towards the CIMA professional qualification. My main responsibility includes assisting my clients to determine the best value from M&A activity. My assignments on my degree, especially in financial systems analysis, prepared me to encounter all sorts of accounting issues in my job.
