Before coming to IÉSEG, I acquired my previous academic qualifications in Financial Accounting and Auditing and worked at PwC India in Audit and Assurance.

The thing that initially attracted me to IÉSEG was its multicultural and international environment and the fact that it is situated in the La Defense business district of Paris.

When I came across the program in Business Analysis and Consulting, I decided that this would be the perfect bridge from my career in auditing to consulting.

Although all of the courses were brilliantly structured and we all could understand their relevance to our future consulting career, a few courses stood out to me: Supply Chain Management, Project Management, Generating Business Value with IT, CSR and Communication Skills. The program courses exposed us to a number of real-life case studies on which we were asked to brainstorm. A lot of this was done through extensive use of decision-making frameworks, which I am sure will be useful to us in our careers.

Overall, I have developed an improved skill set, with more knowledge, and gained valuable international experience, which I believe shall definitely help shape my career. I am glad to be a part of the IÉSEG family.

I am currently doing an internship with GlaxoSmithKline in the Supply Chain Management Department in Belgium.
