    The choice of verbs

    Could you please tell me which of these sentences is better.
    Can I use all three verbs in this context?
    Are there other ways to express the same thought? Thank you

    1. I obtained my Diploma in Management

    I achieved my Diploma in Management.
    2. I finished my studies in 2002.
