“My move from academia to MW brought a positive shift in responsibility and pace. Throughout my 10 years at the firm I have been provided with the tools and opportunities to forge a career in Risk Management. “

"This is an environment that fosters and encourages thought, initiative and action. I have friends who joined larger finance and tech companies after university and subsequently spent their first two years working on projects that had little or no impact, which is the complete opposite to my experience at MW."
