BSc in International Business and Finance, University of Reading (UK)
Hello, Bonjour, Hola, Здравейте!
I’m Maria from Bulgaria and I’m currently enrolled in the 1-year program (M2) Master in Finance. Prior to joining ESSEC, I did a BSc in International Business and Finance at University of Reading in the UK.
My interest in Finance first ignited thanks to my academic experience. Indeed, I undertook various courses through which I gained valuable knowledge. However, in order to successfully pursue a career in finance, I had to broaden my knowledge further and enhance my skills. Therefore, I chose ESSEC’s Master in Finance program because of its rigorous curriculum, exclusive opportunities, and prestigious reputation. Additionally, I chose the Cergy campus, because there is no place like Paris.
The program itself is very dynamic and gives students the chance to learn from great professionals as well as meet people from all around the world. The classes are engaging, and the material is explained very well. In addition, the Career Services and the study trips to different financial centers are very valuable when searching for a job as they give us strong preparation for the real-life experience.
What I also love about ESSEC is that students can engage in their favorite activities or find a new passion by joining various associations that align with their interests. People here are very friendly and make you feel included all the time. In fact, there is no room for negative competition – everyone is so supportive, always ready to help you and wants to see you succeed. Overall, ESSEC gives you limitless opportunities to grow both personally and professionally.
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to me. I would be more than happy to answer them all and help you as much as I can!
