"This will be the first time I am studying abroad and IÉSEG was the best choice for me to expand my knowledge in finance both for the location of the campus and from the point of view of my career. It offers me the chance to attend classes that have real practical value because of the access to the Bloomberg financial markets lab. It will also help me prepare for professional certifications, which are my next steps in my career. Apart from that, at IÉSEG I am confident I will have a multi-cultural experience because we will be a mixed group from all the continents of the globe."

"I chose IÉSEG for many reasons. I know that IÉSEG provides an excellent education for its students, as evidenced by its EQUIS and AACSB accreditations. I was also confident in the quality of education at IÉSEG, as it is a partner school of the Ateneo de Manila University, my alma mater in the Philippines. Moreover, I was very much attracted to IÉSEG’s MSc in Finance course, which includes Bloomberg and Thomson Reuters training — these modules, along with the other MSc in Finance classes, are perfect for the kind of career I am interested in pursuing (research or portfolio management). What’s more, the IÉSEG community is full of international students and faculty, and for me, studying in an international setting is key to being a world-class individual. Finally, what makes IÉSEG the perfect choice is that it has a campus right in Paris, so studying here means that you will live at the heart of one of the most beautiful cities — and countries! — in the world."

"The reason why I choose the MSc in Finance at IESEG School of Management is because I wanted a school that would give me significant exposure to the international business. With the opening of its Paris campus in La Defense IÉSEG is directly connected with the world’s leading enterprises. Success in a global economic environment requires the combination of academic competence and an active professional network; by studying in an international business hub we will have the invaluable opportunity to make those professional connections on a daily basis. I am excited to join IÉSEG and look forward to benefiting from its future growth while also giving back in whatever possible way I can."
