While their (rather sound) advice to me growing up was to study a subject like medicine, law or accountancy if I wanted to go to university, owing to the career prospects, I embraced economics after discovering it at A-level. I studied economics at the University of East Anglia and stayed on to complete a master’s in finance and economics.
