Batin Özkurt

Education: BA Economics and Political Science

Finance sector: Asset management

Previous or current role: Investment Analyst, Nikko Asset Management

About me: Batin received a BA in Economics with a double major in Political Science from the University of Melbourne, which included an exchange year at Columbia University in New York. He has passed CFA Level II.

He thinks the part-time format is a better choice as it allows him to combine job experience and networking with professionals from various industries. Also, intellectual curiosity is crucial in asset management; selection of both technical and soft MiF electives combined with class discussions support the idea generation efforts in his investment role. He also wants to expand his professional network in London.

In his spare time, Batin enjoys travelling around the world and practising sport activities such as skiing, swimming and tennis.
