MSc Financial Data Science 2022, Assistant Vice President – Custody Ops Readiness Team, Citibank Europe

"As a proud alumnus of the MSc Financial Data Science, I can confidently say that this degree has equipped me with the necessary skills and knowledge to thrive in the world of finance. The curriculum is well-structured and designed to provide a solid foundation in finance, data analysis, and machine learning. As a result of the classes' overall value and the knowledge they imparted, I graduated with my career off to a flying start. Since completing my degree, I believe I apply the knowledge I learned to my career every day. UCD prepared me for the challenges I would encounter once I entered the job market, which enabled me to start working right away and be successful in my position thus far. All of the knowledge that was provided to me during my Master’s program laid the groundwork for my career, which has flourished since. I am truly very proud to be a graduate of such a prestigious institution."
