BSc Financial Economics


Tanweer Khan

"I was forced to leave school after A-levels, and get a job due to family circumstances.

However, aged 19, and determined to land a job in the City, I enrolled in the part-time BSc Financial Economics degree during its first intake in 1989.

Now aged 35 and Head of Repo Trading at Credit Agricole Asset Management I can safely say the course at Birkbeck is an excellent grounding for anyone interested in Financial Theory.

I caught the learning bug at Birkbeck and went on to complete a postgraduate degree course in Finance.

I think of my  time at Birkbeck as a truly liberating experience which I will always cherish..I would say however that it can be a bit tricky to balance your work, study and social commitments. I used my lunch hours and commuting time to do all the reading and therefore managed to successfully complete the course without any major problems."
