“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.”
