As far as introductions go, my name’s Muniba (known by most as Mia), and as per my Twitter tagline (yep, straight into the social media like a true Marketer), I come from a family where gravy is considered a beverage. No word of a lie. Born and brought up in Pakistan, I moved to the UK back in 2007 for my undergraduate degree in Business Management and Marketing at Cardiff University, followed by two years of the 9-5 in Copywriting and SEO at an internet marketing company, marketing and media campaigns for a tennis club as part of the Lawn Tennis Association, and most recently, I was working on property projects at the law giant Eversheds LLP in the renewable energy and equity release sector.
Hello fellow students. My name is Ali-Abbas and I have just started the MSc Finance Programme here at the Business School. Previously, I studied Economics at Warwick University.
Having been interested in Finance from an early age I applied to the Masters programme to really fill the gaps in my technical knowledge before launching into a career in Investment Banking. After interning at Morgan Stanley over the summer I realised that a Masters degree in Finance would really help me to advance within the field as well as differentiate myself in the recruitment process.
My plan was always to come back to work in London after my undergraduate degree but Imperial’s reputation, partnership with the CFA Institute and top ranked Finance Programme in London, made it an unmissable opportunity.
