Class of 2015
From London School of Economics
Internship experience as an Analyst at Odysseus Capital

After being schooled in the UK I went on to study the BSc in Philosophy & Economics at the London School of Economics. During my time there, I also completed a summer internship at Odysseus Capital, a Hong Kong based merchant boutique bank.

Ideal location

I chose to attend HEC Paris for numerous reasons. Firstly, prior to entering the industry, I wanted a firm grounding in all areas of finance. Subsequently, attending HEC Paris, one of Europe’s most reputable academic institutions provided an excellent opportunity to do so. Furthermore, having been born and brought up in London, the prospect of living in a neighbouring yet culturally differing city certainly appealed to me. Lastly, knowing that I wanted to work in London made the choice all the more pertinent due to HEC Paris’s proximity as well as its strong placement track record.

Career support from Faculty and Staff

Within the course there is a strong focus on acquiring pragmatic knowledge. For this reason, there is a wide variety of group-based case studies which stand as excellent preparation for interviews and real-life work. Further to this, there is plenty of careers support available on the course too; this is true both from careers advisors provided through the school as well as students from within the program itself. This year saw plenty of MIF students already boasting internship experience and full-time offers from top firms prior to finishing the program. Both sources of career advice proved invaluable in my job search and the exceptional placement record achieved this year is truly testament to the added value of the program.

Building a global network

Personally, it was the genuinely eclectic mix of people that has really impressed me. With a close social circle representing in excess of ten countries, not only is this an excellent global network but also a remarkable opportunity to meet new people and understand different cultures. Some of my personal highlights of the year include the MIF London study trip, playing in and winning the MBAT Rugby 7s tournament, a group trip to Serbia, another to the French Alps and a more recent one to Interlaken- a town for outdoor activities in Switzerland.
Going forward, I’m looking forward to starting as a full-time analyst at Greenhill and advancing my career there.
