I have recently completed my postgraduate studies in Business Economics at City University of London where I obtained an overall mark of 70,1 out of 100 at the exams modules and currently searching for a job that would fulfill my expectations for professional success. I have always dreamt about working in a multicultural environment that offers career opportunities with breadth and potential for development.
As far as my working experience is concerned, my most recent occupation was as a Banking Trainee at A.T.E. bank at the department of loans from October 2008 until March 2009. Working for A.T.E. bank as a Banking Trainee at the department of loans gave me the experience to be part of a team serving rotation in various departments including administration, loans approval, filling customer profile forms and collecting supporting documents, discussing and resolving field related issues with branch employees, ensuring cash deposit procedures on a daily basis, ensuring on time and accurate maintenance and submission of all relevant records of clients, keeping a high-level view for the main business issues and a special focus for details. Furthermore, it helped me to appreciate and embrace crucial values, such as meritocracy, integrity, entepreneurial spirit and excellence.
Regarding my studies, I have successfully completed 7 modules (corporate finance, quantitative methods and econometrics, financial markets, microfinance, research methods) as a postgraduate student and my dissertation. The Maters dissertation was on stock prices and earning surprises using evidence from UK listed companies. Moreover, on the MSc I was made to use relevant software such as Excel, Eviews and Stata as well as Bloomberg. I also did very well on the Financial Markets module with 72% and the Corporate Finance module with 77.5%.
Obtaining an MSc at City University of London is allowing me to substantially improve my financial and economic knowledge and to strengthen my leadership skills working. I am able to work effectively both independently and in a group. Finally, studying in London gave me the opportunity to be taught by distinguished and charismatic proffesors in the financial field.
Overall I consider my background essential for seeking a position within the banking and the financial sector.
