Hi. My name is Tareq Issa. Uh, I'm from Jordan, living in Dubai. I was always looking to dio masters, and mostly I was thinking about an MBA. But then, after working in finance and accounting, I decided I needed more specialized program in, uh, finance. And that's when I started researching programs on Came Into NCR's Executive Masters in Finance. How the program is structured, it's modular format and the way that it allows me to still continue working and do, uh, my Masters. That was something that I really was looking for, Of course, in Sierra, being one of the top universities in the world, that was also very important to me. So I was very happy when I found that program. Uh, I connected at that time with Market Marketing team, and they advised me, uh, Maura about the program and how can I apply for it? One of the most interesting things for me off the program that was it was in person. Uh, I was a bit skeptical about doing an online masters, but with what happened in 2020 with over 19, uh, module one being in Singapore and I was a new a. I couldn't travel. I started the program online for Model one. I found the experience actually much better than I expected because the program administers. They really worked hard to make it the best experience for us. I think the professors were also very supportive. Sometimes you have issues with the videos or not hearing things clearly, but you can just jump in and ask your questions and get them answered. But now I'm very excited to be in module to in person. I made it to Singapore. Getting the visa and approves was a bit difficult, but thankfully, with the help off the program administers, I made it here easily. It's actually very exciting to be here in person. Um, classmates were very also excited and supportive to me, even like inviting me for lunch and asking me, Have a say in Singapore before and offering me any help. Although I cannot go out, I only have special approving now to be on campus, but it's still an amazing thing to be here. One of the really important things I found being here with my classmates is it helps me build a better relationship. So still we we have case studies and we have group discussions. It speaks between the people that are based in Singapore and the people that are online, and that was really good in the online part. But being here in person, it helps me more build a stronger relationship personally with the people being here. Uh, my classmates are so supportive, they're very excited to have me with them, and they're very helpful. The Executive Masters in finance is a great opportunity for anyone who's looking to specialize in masters in finance and accounting. The program is actually exceeding my expectations because it's, uh like it teaches you things you've never would get to do if you've done an MBA or you went just for a masters in accounting or finance. It's really wholesome program that helps you get really specialized and focused on what I really liked. Also speaking with previous patches in infant, they're also very reachable people, and they were helpful in providing me insightful information on how to prepare even for the application, and even now I'm keeping in contact with them and they helped me even to give me some insights on how to prepare for the next model. Like, for example, I reach Thio one off the previous batches, Uh, and he gave me some of the the useful insights, such as reading some books and watching some videos online to help me better understand what's coming up
