Christopher Woon is a Singapore national who joined the MFin Programme in 2017. Prior to starting his journey in Cambridge, he has been working in business banking for nine years altogether working for companies like Citi and United Overseas Bank (UOB).
Christopher felt that the Programme not only reinforced the knowledge he had, but that it also helped create the platform he needed to push his understanding of finance, its concepts and the instruments needed for development. The academic precision and practicality of the programme alongside the university structure also provided him with a platform to explore and learn new aspects of finance such as climate finance and blockchain technology.
Christopher now works for a London-based financial technology firm in project management. He recommends the MFin Programme for those who are seeking a well-rounded, academically challenging programme that gives you different experiences through the diversity of the programme structure and its class.
