  • In a few words: Well-crafted economic investments have the ability to make unparalleled impacts in our world and I want to be part of it. Born in Japan, to a French mother and a New Zealand father I completed a Bachelor of Commerce from the University of Auckland majoring in Economics and Marketing. Post-graduation, I landed a role in New Zealand’s leading media agency - OMD, which is part of the top global advertising corporation (Omnicom). I started as a ‘Graduate Intern’ and was promoted to my 4th role, as a ‘Business Manager’, in under three years. On a day-to-day basis, I analysed and solved business problems for my clients, coming up with innovations to drive revenue. My client portfolio ranged from Insurance companies to FMCG’s, so I am well adapted to moulding my thinking to different industries. Through the EDCBA Master’s program I hope to gain a technical understanding on economic evaluations on projects, to ultimately do good in this world, my vested interests are in: culture, well-being and the environment. I am excited to have the opportunity to contribute to challenging and thought provoking work for you.

  • In a few words: International trilingual economist with academic and professional experience in the USA, Finland, France, and Peru. The main focus of my career is to work towards development through the socio-economic impact assessment of public policies and private projects. The two previous experiences I got gave me the opportunity to work for cultural goods restitution at UNESCO and well-being policy evaluation for the Eurométropole of Strasbourg, accomplishing the goals of both institutions and showing my capacity of adaptation and problem-solving abilities. For the future, I plan to work in an international organization, development agency, or consulting firm where I could combine my quantitative skills, the tools of economic evaluation, and my broad international experience.

  • In a few words: I am in my final year at Ecole des Ponts ParisTech as a student in the SEGF department (Sciences, Economie, Gestion, Finances). I did two internships last year to find out about the working world and how a business is managed. Therefore I did a first six months internship as a data analyst in a startup (papernest) and another one in a big corporation (ExxonMobil) as a business analyst. Those two experiences showed me that I liked to analyze data and to learn about a business, its strenghts and weaknesses. Therefore, I chose EDCBA to reinforce my analytical skills and my understanding of Economy and Finance.

  • In a few words: I graduated from Al Akhawayn University in Ifrane with a Bachelor in Business Administration, double majoring in Finance and International Business. Throughout the 4 years of my degree, I had the opportunity to go twice on exchange programs; Bogazici university in Turkey and Bocconi in Italy. Besides academics, I have conducted 3 internships. The first one was in the field of accounting. The second internship was at an investment bank where I conducted research about the value relevance of accounting information in the Moroccan stock market.Then I served as a research intern at Captain Brownie, a Moroccan CSR consulting company. I have a keen interest in the notion of sustainable development. My objective is to work in an investment fund specialized in renewable and green energies, as I believe it is the best way for me to combine my educational background, and my strong interest for environmental preservation. It is thus only natural that I chose EDCBA master in order to enhance my analytical skills and develop economic evaluation tools in the decision making process.

  • In a few words: I’m a South Korean student holding a Bachelor of Science degree in Economics with a minor in Monetary Finance from University Paris II Panthéon-Assas. I studied for a year in a master’s programme in Econometrics and Statistics at the same university, working at the same time as an Actuarial Data Researcher apprentice for AXA France. Throughout my academic and professional career, I have built a passion for econometrics and statistics or more broadly Data Science and felt the need of integration of social factors into the Data Science field. I have chosen to come to PSE EDCBA programme to better understand the importance of the aggregation of social factors and to obtain related quantitative skills.
