Aglaé PELTIER, currently a manager at Square Management, a strategy, management and organization consulting firm, chose, 5 years ago, to join the MSc & MBA Lyon for her last two years of studies.
” I chose INSEEC after 3 years of work-study as an account manager in banking, for the quality of its teaching and especially for the pragmatism of its teachers.
I chose the MSc2 International Financial Analysis as my specialization because I have always been attracted by the monitoring and support of companies and by the international dimension.
My two years of training within the MSc & MBA programs have allowed me to complete two internships in financial environments (investment funds, private equity) for foreign clients.
In MSc 1, I chose to do my internship as a Risk Manager at Nomura Bank, the largest Japanese custodian bank. In MSc 2, I did my end-of-studies internship in a start-up that put European private equity funds in touch with African SMEs.
Upon graduation in 2017 I realized my goal of blending the dimensions: international, finance, and business coaching by finding my first job at a merger and acquisition firm in New York.
During my 18 months in Manhattan, I blossomed within a team with nationalities, cultures and work methods that were the antithesis of what I had known until then. This experience made me realize that I particularly liked business development and team management.
When I returned to France, I decided to apply for business manager positions in the financial sector in Paris.
Today, I joined SQUARE MANAGEMENT, a consulting firm in strategy, management and organization as a Manager. My missions are multiple : I am in charge of the commercial development of my firm with CAC40 companies, in the banking, finance, insurance, industry sectors…
I also take care of the recruitment of our new consultants and their management on assignment.
My life is at 100 km/h, every day I take on new challenges, I learn new things and meet new people. I joined a growing, dynamic group that offers great opportunities for development. That’s exactly what I was looking for and that’s what I managed to achieve by having, at every step of my professional life, anticipated the next step.
One of the reasons I joined this program at INSEEC was for its entrepreneurial spirit. My next step in a few years will be to start my own business. And I intend to continue to enrich myself with all the professional experiences necessary to achieve this goal.
Choosing a major may seem complicated : my advice to students is to think further, according to your goals, your dreams and especially : go for it ! “”Updated 24 February 2022
