Rohan Guptaroy, MSc International Financial Management graduate, shares his experiences about studying at Surrey Business School.
What attracted you to choose the University of Surrey and to study your course here?
What really attracted me was the campus facilities, and expertise of the lecturers and professors teaching on the course. The course wasn't just a general finance degree, as it focused on the global and international aspects of financial management. This made the knowledge I learned applicable in any industry around the world.
What were the best things about your course?
The structure and in-depth detail of the course, along with how relevant the modules were to the present-day financial industry. I found the course covered all areas of financial management in great detail.
What do you find most enjoyable about your line of work?
The fundamental and technical analysis of stocks within and outside India. As a Hedge Fund Trader our days are quite hectic but exciting, as we are constantly looking for new opportunities with the Asian and global stock markets.
How did your time at Surrey influence your career?
My course equipped me with the right knowledge and outlook, but during my time at Surrey I also grew as a person. The year I spent at Surrey made me more assertive and confident in my professional career. This was all due to the group work, presentations and so on, where we challenged ourselves and each other to be the best.
How can students hoping to work in your profession make the most of their time at Surrey?
I found the best way is to communicate with your fellow coursemates as well as the professors. The more dialogue you have with others on the course, the more you’ll get out of life at university.
The University of Surrey is also a great place for networking, with most students going on to do great things in their professional life. I would recommend students get in touch with the Alumni Network and use the careers services that the University provides.
What is your happiest memory of your time at Surrey?
The happiest memory would be my graduation. I got to meet up with my coursemates and friends. It was a day to cherish!
