What are some important stages of your development (education and training, first job, evolution of your career, etc.)?

I did my undergraduate studies at Harvard where I majored in an interdisciplinary degree focusing on economics and politics. After briefly working in the political world, I decided I wanted to get business training so I could develop business-based solutions to the issues I cared about. I am currently a student at HEC Paris. Next year I will work in finance, consulting, or technology.

Why did you choose HEC Paris?

HEC to me was a standard of excellence for business schools in Europe. The nice campus setting, the caliber of the students, the robust extracurricular life, and an academic offering I found fascinating compelled me to come to HEC. My experience at HEC offers me the chance to pursue an international career. While before I felt limited geographically to the U.S., a degree abroad validates your desire and ability to work internationally.

Looking back today, what have you gained from the HEC Master of Science (from a personal or professional perspective)?

In addition to the classroom experience which served as a powerful platform for discussions and debates, the study trip to Madagascar organised by the class was an experience of a lifetime. A group of 30 students, passionate about sustainability travelled through the length of the country to understand the environmental, social and economic needs of the country. The opportunity to meet with the local population and development organisations working on issues related to the environment, communities, energy, biodiversity and health provided a learning of a very different kind.

Courses, conferences, meetings, outings… What are the most significant memories of your year at HEC Paris?
The best parts of HEC for me were organizing our class study trip to Madagascar, the extraordinary people I met, playing on the rugby team, getting professional experience through our consulting missions, and fully immersing myself in student and academic life at HEC.
