Before joining IÉSEG, I did a Bachelor’s Degree in International Management in Geneva, Switzerland.
I chose IÉSEG for its reputation and because the school offered a Master of Science in Investment Banking and Capital Markets, which was more specialized than some of the finance programs I was looking at.
In our class, we had more than 10 nationalities, which gave me the chance to work with people from different cultures on different projects.
I have really appreciated that professors approach the courses in both a theoretical and practical way and look to push us outside of our comfort zone.
I have really enjoyed the portfolio management (equity and fixed income) courses, which were extremely interesting. They are directly linked with the content of the CFA certificate, which gives us excellent knowledge if we want to pass the CFA later. During the portfolio management equity course, we built an active portfolio, an ETF (Exchange Traded Fund), etc.
After the end of my Master’s degree, I will carry out my internship at JP Morgan in London.
