The MCF is one of the biggest steps in my life that I have taken to strive and succeed. It provides multiple opportunities for personal and knowledge development, along with the acquisition of new technical knowledge. The experience brought classmates from multi-cultural backgrounds and gave us knowledge on how to collaborate through into account different cultural norms. It is a unique program for people who are not afraid of challenges and ready to expand their limits. The program gave me knowledge and skills to start my career in the field that I had always dreamed about in one of the most prominent and exotic business centers - Hong Kong.

To me, the MCF was an incredible experience: in just one year time it gives you the broadest understanding of the complex world called Finance. I was able to completely switch career, as I came from a totally different background. I earned a Master double-degree from two world famous Institutions, experiencing Finance in a truly multicultural environment. This helped me also to pass the CFA Level I exam in a very short time.

This is a Program for those who are eager to combine theoretical and case-based study and who have a burning desire to have long-term success.

“The MCF was an incomparable experience, very helpful for the development of time management skills, teamwork mentality and constant self-questioning, but it also left time for extracurricular activities and fascinating experiences. I developed a skill set that I am pretty confident it will be a valuable asset for my personal and professional growth. Coming from a non-financial background, the MCF was my ticket to the world of Finance, and in a bulge-bracket firm too.”
