First year undergraduate student Arjun Pandya, studying on the BSc Investment & Financial Risk Management gives an insight into his experience at Cass:
Being taught first hand by industry leading lecturers has given me a great insight into the financial markets and the various issues occurring in the present economy. Our last coursework got us thinking exactly like analysts - developing analytical skills which are vital in the industry. Communication and written skills are tested regularly through class tests and presentations. Having always been interested in the financial sector, I was keen to get an internship during my gap year. I succeeded by working within the Barclays Group at Barclays Corporate their commercial bank and later on at the investment banking arm Barclays Capital.
