My name is Alexis MAISSANT, I am 23 and I come from France. I currently study at ESSEC Asia-Pacific campus, in the SMIB master.
During five years I had the opportunity to study both mathematics and computing sciences in a French engineering school now called CY-Tech, leading me to a data science and fintech oriented path from which I graduated.
Those years enabled me to master technical skills and to apply them during internships and apprenticeship, be it in France or abroad.

For instance, I had the opportunity to do some research in machine learning and emotion recognition while doing an internship in Serbia, later I also used my data analytics skills during a one-year experience at ARVAL (BNP Paribas) as a risk data analyst. This last experience led me to a realisation, just doing analysis was frustrating. I needed to go further and taking decisions according to analysis seemed to be the challenge I needed to take.

I thus joined SMIB program in Singapore for its strategy and management oriented courses as well as for its orientation towards Asia's promising markets. Moreover, SMIB program, other than teaching you strategy and management related skills, allows you to directly apply what you have learned through a consulting mission over 7 months or over an internship at the end of the program. This master international aspect grants you the opportunity to share and interact with students from all over the world, thus widening your future prospects.

I would be more than happy to answer any of your concern regarding Singapore, the master in SMIB, ESSEC or even my personal experience, so feel free to contact me!
