Nico SCHEINER, Germany, MSc BiF
"I chose TBS as it is one of the top ranked universities in France and Europe. Offering several, different master programs and combining the theoretical content with a practical semester in the end was exactly what i was looking for. Classes were taught not only by TBS professors, but also by professionals. This blend of experiences and teaching methods made the program interesting and exciting and there was the opportunity to ask questions and get an insight into their daily activities and some advice on how to succeed after the program. The program was helpful for my professional future as I have not only learnt theoretical content also for my professional career. Thanks to this, I have started my career at Bloomberg in London, having a direct exposure to the financial world. The degree itself is a plus on everyone's CV and enabled me to get several interviews for different positions, so that I had a choice."
Haofeng (Kevin) LU, Luxembourg, MSc BiF 2017
"I chose TBS mainly due to its high “return on investment” – one can attend a prestigious education institution in France with reasonable duration & financial investments. The quality of the program and the faculty exceeded my expectations. As the program combined theory and practice, the lectures were given by professors from the faculty, as well as visiting professionals who work full time in corporations, which helped bridge theoretical knowledge with the real world. This close tie with the Finance industry gave me direct insights as well as an enormous network prior to graduation, which proved to be helpful in my internship search, expansion of professional network and exploring business opportunities later on. The support teams provided me with timely and helpful assistance relevant for international students. I would absolutely recommend this program to the future students. As a triple accredited business school, earning a degree from the program qualified me for multiple interviews and opened doors to different opportunities."
