Finance and Investment BSc (Hons)

At KBS you are not just a number.

What attracted you to your programme of study and why?

The School is affiliated with the CFA Institute with many modules congruent to those found in the CFA syllabus and I plan to complete my CFA [Chartered Financial Analyst] exams after I graduate.

Why did you choose to study at Kent Business School (KBS)?

KBS offered a course tailor-made for the CFA charter. I was also drawn to the Bloomberg room feature of the University.

Which modules have you enjoyed the most and why?

I took an introductory module on data analytics and statistics for business and enjoyed the way the module was taught. Lectures were very engaging, and the foreign concepts were explained particularly well.

What are the facilities like at KBS and on campus generally?

The facilities in the School are good, up-to-date, user friendly and easy to get around. There is ample support for students from the School and also from the University such as the Student Learning Advisory Service and the mentor scheme. The campus is well kept. It is unique in the sense that it comprises of three universities (something I initially found fascinating).

How would you describe your lectures?

Some lectures are interesting, well thought-out, and exciting. There is sufficient support from lecturers if needed.

What do you want to do after graduation?

I want to start my career while simultaneously studying for Level 1 of the CFA.

Any advice to somebody thinking of coming to Kent Business School?

If you are interested in attending a University where to most you are not just a number and you have the option of forming a conducive educational relationship with your lecturer and seminar leaders, KBS is a great option.
