Obtaining an undergraduate degree  is a milestone for a successful  career path, however, the acquisition of a master’s degree gives the opportunity to deepen  the subject of study and lead in the labor market. Attending Epsilon College’s MSc in Accounting & Finance graduate program provided me with all the necessary resources and a more thorough specialization in the financial industry. The master’s program not only satisfied my desire for further education but also served as a springboard to a new successful career.

Foteini Gavrilidou

I was lucky enough to be one of the first Master HRM student of Epsilon College and UoN. 

My initial thought was to use my time during the pandemic to acquire more skills and knowledge about the subject of HR, so that I could be more effective in my collaborations.

I chose the full time mode of the programme  and without a doubt I could say that it is one of the best decisions I made for choosing a program, in terms of my training and my professional development, but also my personal development.

Northampton is an amazing University, which created an impressive program and the teaching of the courses is undertaken by professors with professional experience and tangible knowledge of the market in the HR subject.

The program is structured with a scientific background, best practices and new trends in the field of HR, supported by the impressive Northampton library with access to it as students. I would also like to gratefully mention the support of the Epsilon College executives and secretariat which has been invaluable, especially during the difficult period of the pandemic.

I unreservedly recommend the specific study program to any new, as well as experienced professional who wishes to delve into the various tools, new trends and methodologies of the magical HR world and at the same time broaden their horizons.

Peter Saant

Group Treasurer | Finance & Operations

Following my long years of experience in group treasury of a multinational corporation reporting to the C level executives, I decided to pursue a master’s degree in Finance & Accounting to enhance and update my knowledge and obtain a complete view of the said field in search for my next step in my career.

Most of the modules helped me in improving my knowledge in finance however, to my surprise, through my master’s studies at Epsilon College, I was introduced to a relatively new subject of ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) which I had no previous experience in and that was closely related to my field of expertise and is very crucial for the viability and performance of corporations today. I strongly believe such learning experience will assist me elevate my career path in the foreseeable future.

I am satisfied that the course of 18 months was up to date, delivered by professional tutors who presently work in the industry (bankers and finance specialists of multinationals) who shared their work experience with their students throughout, making the theoretical part applicable and comparable to actual industry events.

I was also impressed with the organisation of the college in setting up the study sessions and programs that allowed me to manage my time working, studying, and spending quality time with my family. The whole experience was very enjoyable and extremely useful.
