"What I like about studying finance is that it can be quite challenging to learn all of the concepts but they can be quite flexible and can be applied to many things. You can think on your feet and you can apply theorems to completely new areas and see what happens."

Essex Business School alumni

Essex Business School is now home to the subjects of accounting, finance, entrepreneurship, management and marketing. However, many of our alumni studied with us when we were known as the School of Accounting, Finance and Management back in the early days of the University.

"My undergraduate major was in finance and I needed a Masters degree to be able to face fierce competition for jobs in China. MSc Accounting and Finance at Essex helped me to train my way of thinking and writing. This training enabled me to write high-quality academic articles and improve my knowledge of the field of accounting and finance."
