This event is for students considering a career in Investment Management – you do not need to study a finance related degree to attend. Please note that M&G will also be holding Insights Days for First Year Undergraduates in spring 2017. If you attended an M&G Insights Event in the 2015/16 academic year we would recommend that you attend an event with different speakers this year.
The lecture will be led by two of members of M&G who will share their experiences and insights of the financial world. This will be followed by a networking opportunity to give you the chance to meet with further members of staff from M&G and ask any questions you may have.
