Is Msc in accounts and finance from university of surrey worth it?
Why would you take it - what would be your objectives for taking the course?

In general I'm very suspicious about A+F masters degree - but they can be valid options.

Hi there,

To introduce myself I'm Joao. In my final year studying BSc Economics at Surrey University, I am working as a Campus Ambassador for JP Morgan. I recently finished my one-year industrial placement as an Economist for the British Government's Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra). I also had the opportunity to work as a Private Secretary to the Minister of Environment and Biosecurity.
