'The high in-depth level of the course is definitely challenging but also stimulating. In fact, studying from recently published papers is common and it is helpful in understanding what the current relevant topics are.
The relationship between teachers and students is less formal than I thought, and it is very helpful when it comes to arranging a meeting or discussing topics after lectures. Students are usually interested and involved even though very quiet.
The theoretical level of argumentation is high but studying before every lecture helps avoiding knowledge gaps.
After graduating I would like to work in the financial industry to apply my knowledge in a more practical way.'
