BA in Economics, University of Chicago
My name is Raphael and I’m currently in the 1-year ESSEC Master of Finance (MiF) program based in Singapore. Prior to joining ESSEC, I studied at the University of Chicago where I majored in Economics. In 2018 completed a private equity internship in Singapore at Tikehau Capital, and in 2019, a Sales and Trading summer internship at Credit Agricole CIB in Hong Kong. The ESSEC program has been a fantastic opportunity for me to meet like-minded students deeply committed to creating an uplifting environment in which we can collectively pursue our career dreams. The school’s extensive network and career-related training provides superb assistance for students looking to land an internship or full-time opportunity in finance that aligns with their personal motivation. Additionally, the academic faculty provides students with a balanced curriculum that is rigorous but also very much applicable to the real-world. Lastly, the MiF program presents an opportunity to develop impactful and long-lasting relationships with fellow students that travel from all parts of the world to come to be part of the ESSEC community. Please do not hesitate to message me if you have any queries or concerns about ESSEC and the MiF program- I am always willing to talk and share my ESSEC experience with others.
