I have always liked Liberal Arts Education, but I did not want to be away from my family. Richmond was the best option for me as it offered the education I wanted to receive, and yet be close to home.
I started my degree with the focus on economics, but as I tried a few finance classes, I realized I wanted to combine finance with economics. Richmond is unique in that it offers Financial Economics, which is exactly what I wanted to major at. Moreover, I cannot think of a better city in the world than London to study finance.
Small size classes allows me to participate and ask questions in classes. I find one to one interaction with professors an essential part of effective learning, and Richmond provides this to all students.
Some classes can be challenging, but I learn the most from these classes and actually enjoy them. I have to admit I like being challenged, and Richmond sure does challenge me in many ways!
