Nearing the end of my degree allows for a time of reflection, and to pass on anything I think would be useful to know when coming to Lancaster! I ended up at Lancaster through clearing, which seemed like the scariest thing in the world at the time, but it meant that I ended up at […]Read More About my degree: BSc Business Economics – Laura Trigg

Perhaps even better is that it is exclusive to LUMS students, meaning that your flatmates studying English or Politics cannot diminish the chunk of mash available to us Management School students. Now, those of you […]Read More Free MASH for all!

Obviously, the problem here wasn’t that the economics faculty in my school didn’t accept girls onto their course (I mean, they let me in) but the problem was that girls weren’t applying to study this […]Read More Women in Economics
Before the Easter, the taught modules in LUMS were almost finished. Therefore, I would like to share some experience and thoughts about the Money, Banking and Finance programme. The first time I saw MBF, I was quite confused since I had no idea about what I would study in this programme. Besides, in other business schools, […]Read More What is MSc Money, Banking and Finance?
Hi everyone, my name is Xuanyin, Hu and I am studying MSc Money, Banking and Finance at LUMS now. I am from China.
