The MSc in Finance at GEM gave me a solid grounding in finance thanks to the broad scope of the curriculum, combining both theory and hands-on practice. The diversity of the students, coming from all over the world, and their common interest in Finance contributed to make the atmosphere just awesome, with a strong team spirit and mutual help amongst us.
For me the MSc Finance program was enriching on so many different levels: developing myself and building up on my education and career whilst at the same time making lifelong friends all over the world and learning so much about other cultures.
The people surrounding me throughout the program, classmates as well as professors, became like a family to me and it was an extremely positive experience which opened many doors, both professionally and socially.
When comparing my experience with peers who followed a similar Masters course elsewhere, I realize the high value of this particular program and I feel that I made a very good decision to study at Grenoble Ecole de Management.
I had a science background with limited knowledge of management or economics so the MSc Finance was a great conversion course for me. The curriculum covered all major areas of finance, providing us with a broad perspective as well as more in-depth knowledge in each field. By the end of the program I felt that I was in a strong position to apply for jobs within different areas in finance and bring added value to these companies. I strongly believe that the MSc. played a very significant role in the career path that led me to my current position and equipped me with the skills and network necessary to achieve this.
In addition to the quality of the program and its lively international dynamic, Grenoble is a fantastic place to study and I felt lucky to have the opportunity to discover this beautiful region. If I could do it all again, I would!
