They complement my previous education very well. Living on the campus, I love spending time with French students as well as many CIAM students coming from just everywhere in the world to spend 2 years at HEC: a very exciting inter cultural experience indeed.

Studying at HEC also implies team working and interacting with students wishing to improve their English, while I make every possible effort to bring my business French to a proper level.

3. What are your plans for the future?

I might take advantage of the possibility offered by HEC to spend one year out for the next year: I’d love to study in a German-speaking city like Cologne, Vienna or St Gall. This would make it possible for me to develop my understanding of European cultures and languages further.

But above all, I feel very attracted to finance: teaching at HEC is excellent in this field, and makes me feel confident enough to envision applying to major investment banks upon graduation…

1. How did you hear of HEC in the first place?

After completing High School in Greenwich, Connecticut in 1998, I spent a whole year in France, studying at Montpellier University. This experience made me eager to come back to France at some point, but my command of French was insufficient… So I took a BA in French and Linguistics from Hertford College, Oxford University.
It was at Oxford that I heard of HEC as the best French Business School and of CIAM selection process for candidates holding non-French higher education degrees obtained outside France, like me.

2. What do you think of HEC?

I am very happy to have a chance to learn a wide range of business-related subjects with a French and European touch.
