The Baruch program at AGS gave me an edge by cultivating my knowledge in finance and crafting my way of thinking. The environment of the program mirrors my work environment: my co-workers come from all over the world, but the language of work is English. The key reasons, however, for my decision to study at this school were that I had access to some of the most brilliant professors in the world and the flexibility to work while studying.
