“BNY Mellon Master's Thesis Competition is a great opportunity to confront your skills and knowledge with the business directly! For me it was a great motivation to bear in mind that my work will be presented to the top financial experts from the judging panel. My success was involved with learning a lot about application of mathematical and programming concepts in finance and helped me to start my career as a professional quantitative analyst. I strongly recommend you taking your chance this year and wish you good luck!”
