I joined investment banking about 10 years ago, i joined as a mid career executive and so i didn't go through the typical graduate entry training, so what i know about my business is what i basically picked it up on my own , so i believe this is the right time to pick up a formal education in finance. There were a couple of different programmes that were offered in Singapore, but what I wanted was short duration course that is very specialized in specifically what I needed to know. I get a chance to meet people who don't come from the same background, in my cohort, i have course mates from marine trading, insurance business, a couple of university lecturers, it's a chance to actually see the world from quite a different point of view.
