I chose finance studies because this study program develops analytical thinking, the ability to constantly respond to changes and see future trends. During the bachelor's studies, students have acquired the ability to analyse the ongoing processes and changes and make related decisions, to perform budget planning. Knowledge of financial markets has allowed me to work for a promising companies. I can name the year of study as one of the most memorable of my life. The positive impression was left by the teachers, whose competence was never in doubt and with whom they can always communicate without any barriers. Additionally, during the entire study process, an effort is made to teach understanding and the ability to make appropriate decisions that will be necessary and reasoned in the future, rather than memorization. Although there are no limits to perfection, I would definitely recommend this degree program to anyone who has at least some connection to their future with finance, economics, or business.
