Finance and accounting complement one another when accounting looks at organizations past performance finance looks into the future through long term planning and forecasting. Organizations that execute unbiased financial analysis demolish risks and secure upcoming profits. I believe that sufficient learning from a postgraduate degree along with the experience I gained from banking sector will qualify me to become a unique risk analyst in the competitive department of risk.
I found my mind and soul drawn to finance after working in the banking sector. Finance was an extension of all the experiences I have gained at the university and the time spent during my working years. From the time I have graduated till now, I choose to accentuate myself by taking finance related courses one after another like: operational risk management, business planning, corporate finance, portfolio management, financial reporting and analysis, money laundering, as well as self-development courses in leadership. Eventually I decided it was time for me to take my interest to the next level and study finance and accounting in a detailed approach.
My job involved a lot of aspects from advising customers how to make substantial profits based on income and financial obligations to granting loans. Continuous development and reading on financial measures like discounted cash flow, discount rates, and inflation rate gave me the propensity to evaluate the present value of money. Subsequently perform long and short-term money allocation plans for affluent customers. In addition to this, I granted loans and saw how customers are assessed based on their credit score. How the value of loans is put down in amortization schedule. This work environment has definitely provoked me in different ways starting from my personal and managerial skills hiking my financial skills, however; I feel that I am insatiable to learn more and enhance these skills.

The creation a well-informed risk analyst in the beginning would be plunged by studying a Master's in Accounting and Finance.

It's important to mention my grades at the undergraduate level. I stumbled in my undergraduate university studies at xxx University; however, this doesn't mean I was incapable of understanding or applying the material taught. I wasn't like that as high school student or at my university in xxxx where achieved the second highest grades amongst all students in my course. The main reason for these low grades was that both of my parents went through several operations throughout my study period. I had no option but to care for them. As years went, I became a rigid person who is much stronger, capable of regulating problems, and determined to reach the goals set more than ever.
In conclusion, studying in the UK my undergraduate degree in xxxx provoked me to commence further studies in accounting and finance.
