  • 6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
  • I feel I have learned a lot, more than in the whole year at university thanks to the people I worked with. I am definitely more mature and aware of the business and generally of the industry right now. I developed new skills which will help me succeed not only in my last year of study but also in my future career.

    The Company

  • 7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?
  • MUSI is unique in this respect, the culture of the bank (which stands out in the daily working atmosphere) is far better than that of other banks. People are nice, open, friendly, very talented and smart. They are always ready to share their views, experiences, give advice and teach you. It is definitely the best place to start your career if you really want to understand the job and generally speaking the industry.
