I have especially enjoyed studying alongside people from very diverse backgrounds.

Why did you choose to study at City, University of London?

I was looking for a programme that would complement my financial services experience in business process re-engineering with a deep understanding of systems thinking and quantitative decision support methodologies. The Decision Sciences MSc matched my requirements perfectly.

What do you enjoy most about your course?

The balance between studying rational decision making, covered within the quantitative modules such as Game Theory, Evolutionary Game Theory and Optimisation, contrasted against the emotional non-rational decision making covered in the Agent Based Modelling and Network Science module. This is a unique feature of this course; similar programmes I looked at generally cover only one of the two aspects.

What has been your favourite module and why?

Evolutionary Game Theory has been the most fascinating module for me. It has completely changed the way I analyse situations and assess the impact of strategies. I believe this enhanced perspective will be invaluable.

What has been a highlight of your course so far?

I especially enjoyed studying alongside people from very diverse backgrounds such as physics, banking, engineering, economics, etc. This helped me obtain a deeper, more rounded understanding of the subject.

What do you plan to do after you graduate?

I intend to go back into Financial Services.
