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.
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.

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.
Choosing to continue your studies in an older age with many is an important decision to make and it should be made based on strong personal criteria, goals and aspirations.
