Bachelor of Science Maritime Studies, Nanyang Technological University
I am extremely delighted to see you on this page, as it means you are exactly where I was one year ago. I am here to make your decision making and application process easier, just like what the previous ESSEC ambassadors have done for me.
My name is Jialiang. I am from China and I have spent the past 7 years studying and working in Singapore. After my undergraduate studies, I decided to follow my passion and pursue a career in finance. Working as an investment analyst in asset management has provided me with hands-on experience, but I realized that I still need a more technical skillset, a broader network and a deeper understanding of the overall finance industry. That is when ESSEC came into the picture. I chose the MiF program at ESSEC because of its technical syllabus, its extensive global network and its emphasis on career and practices. I have not regretted my decision since, and I hope ESSEC will also be your ideal choice.
ESSEC has not failed to deliver on its promises. The teaching faculty is nothing short of amazing. The lecturers are always able to relate the theories to work scenarios to give us insights on how finance works in real life. Just one and a half months into the program, there has already been a few “O Captain My Captain” moments. The career services at ESSEC is also outstanding. Every week, we have speakers from different companies working in various sectors and divisions of the financial industry to coming to ESSEC. They share with us their personal career journey and give us clearer ideas on what we should pursue.
If you have any questions regarding the application, campus life at ESSEC or life in Singapore in general, please do not hesitate to drop me a message and I would love to share my experience with you. Can’t wait to hear from you!
