What motivated you to study Energy, Trade and Finance at Bayes Business School?
Bayes Business School is a well-known University with a high reputation in the Energy and Shipping industry, being recognised by the top employers across the world. Bayes Business School is one of the few schools across the country that provides an MSc specialising in the Energy sector.
My decision to pursue the specific MSc was taken based on my interest in the sector and how it evolves given the recent shift in the market to convert to environmentally friendly and low carbon products aiming to achieve zero emissions in the near future.
Can you tell us a bit about your experience of studying at Bayes and how it has impacted your career goals?
My time at Bayes Business School was fulfilling. I have obtained significant knowledge from the best academics in the industry, and I was given the opportunity to participate to various networking events which was a stepping stone to the next chapter of my career.
The course was structured to a great extent, the coursework we had to complete across the different modules and especially the Business plan was a great blend of the theories applied to practise.
What I appreciated the most is that I had a great group of colleagues with whom I am now very close friends and share our career progress.

My master’s has played a significant role for this career step, during my time at Bayes Business School I was involved in a business plan related to renewable energy and more specifically batteries. Therefore, I was ready to apply the knowledge I acquired to my job.
