"The entire FYP experience was so authentic and rewarding because we got to work alongside big corporations and introduce solutions targeted at real-life banking problems. FYP was truly a great learning experience that allowed us to think out of the box and present our ideas to professionals eloquently. 10/10 would redo it all over again!"
