Stories from students

PhD Students at 2015 Auckland Finance Meeting

"My PhD studies offer me opportunities to broaden my understanding of applied finance on a daily basis.  AUT provides me with every resource I need to conduct my research and I have very knowledgeable and supportive supervisors.  Auckland is a beautiful city that makes it easy to spend amazing weekends close to nature after a week of hard work."
- Ilnara Gafiatullina, PhD student

“During my studies, I got to learn some beautiful econometrics and apply them on real data. The PhD programme was demanding but manageable thanks to experienced and encouraging supervisors. The friendly and international atmosphere of the Finance Department also made the journey enjoyable. Winter is cold in Auckland, but there are worse places out there.”
- Dr Ivan Indriawan
