I am thinking of weather to go for a MSc Finance in Singapore/UK in the coming Sept or not. I would like to work in Fintech/virtual banking field (it can be project management/ accelerators/ venture capital) as I am a business graduate. 


Thank you very much !


For my background, I interned overseas in Singapore and Malayisa and of course HK as well. For my internship experience in banks, I interned in a marketing dept in a private bank (SG based) and in the Fintech team in another SG based bank. For these 2 roles, they are both in HK. 


I am a graduate of 2019, majoring in Marketing. I did work as a graduate trainee for few months , but I didn't like it and it was irrelevant to the banking Industry.  Therefore, I quitted and am now interning in a Fintech dept for a bank.
