BSc Banking and Finance, AAST-Cairo


‘After studying for a Diploma in Economics I became more interested in studying the repercussions of the recent financial crisis on the banking sector, and a BSc in Banking and Finance has fulfilled this interest. Besides adding a lot to my knowledge, the University of London courses have increasingly challenged my analytical skills and argumentative abilities.’


Mai Mahmoud first took the Diploma in Economics, which she passed with Distinction. She then took the BSc Banking and Finance degree, which she gained with First Class Honours. She was awarded a Chevening Scholarship and successfully finished a MSc in Economics at LSE.
