Our students, staff and alumni about Finance

Student Pablo Galan from Spain

Master's student Finance Pablo Galan

My name is Pablo, student ambassador for the Master in Finance.  Having done my studies Business and Law, I was looking for something more concise. This Master’s with the specialization in Asset Management instantaneously drew my attention.

Apart from interesting lectures, Tilburg offers many activities, associations and students Clubs. I particularly enjoy A&F Investments Club, which let us gain practical knowledge of investing to supplement the theory we are taught during our studies at the University.

Student Nikolaos Michopoulos from Greece

Mail student Nikolaos

During my internship in an Investments company focusing on the Greek Real Estate sector, I had the opportunity to realize that finance is the field that inspires me. Making the next step towards the fulfillment of my goal for a career in the financial sector, I decided to choose Tilburg University as the stepping stone to global career opportunities.

The MSc in Finance program delivers broad business knowledge and specialized expertise in both financial management and investment analysis. Moreover, it enables students to enhance their cross-cultural understanding. The most memorable moment so far, was the guest lecture from Morgan Stanley London. This lecture gave us the opportunity to dive deep into the methods of one of the biggest financial institutions, through an IPO case study.

Do not hesitate to contact me if you have questions about the program or the life in the Netherlands.
