Bachelor in Business Administration (Professional Accountancy), The Chinese University of Hong Kong
Mandarin, Cantonese, English
My name is Qianwen. I am from China and currently in my first year at ESSEC Singapore. Before joining in ESSEC, I was a accounting major student from The Chinese University of Hong Kong. After my graduation, I faced a tough choice: either working in a financial institution in Hong Kong or pursuing a master degree abroad.
After careful considerations, I decided to apply for ESSEC. At first, the multinational and multicultural identity of ESSEC is very appealing. As an adventurous person, I always want to explore different possibilities and experience more. ESSEC has campuses in three continents, and its strong bilateral ties with other prestigious business schools can provide a lot of exchange opportunities. Since I started my courses, I have found that ESSEC surprises me every and each day. My classmates are from various countries, such as France, India, Indonesia, Italy, Morocco and so on. Interacting with them makes me learn more about different cultures and become more open-minded. Furthermore, I will go to Cergy campus in France next year, which will enable me to explore the Europe and learn a new language.
The reason why I choose Grande Ecole is that the program provides a lot of choices with students, who can select different specialized tracks based on their interests and career goals. As I am determined to work in finance sector in the future, I choose Corporate Finance Track. The course structure is very integrated. It not only teaches us the textbook knowledge, but also develop our business sense and thinking pattern, as well as the professional attitudes and qualities such as cooperative and creative, which are vital to success in one’s career. In addition to the coursework, ESSEC also provides good career services. We have experienced consultants helping with the career choices and interview preparations. School also organizes networking events to enable us to get interacted with firms in industries. I believe that in ESSEC, I will be trained into a real business profession who has leadership, competences and global perspectives.
