Antonin, stagiaire chez CIC, Bachelor's degree - sciences politiques 

"En tant que stagiaire au sein des pôles de Structured Finance et de Corporate Finance chez CIC, mes missions consistaient à répondre à trois attentes principales au sein du groupe. Tout d’abord, je devais contribuer à l’évaluation des risques et des bénéfices de transactions potentielles dans les différents secteurs faisant partie du portfolio du CIC Singapour. Ensuite, ma présence au CIC Singapour m’a permis d’observer la mise en place de demandes de crédit dans le cadre de financements de projets de diverses natures. Enfin, il m’est arrivé de devoir effectuer des recherches pour les activités de Corporate et Structured Finance. La tendance actuelle des grandes banques et groupes financiers s’oriente exponentiellement vers les comportements éco-responsables."

Jihye Kang, analyst in the political section, as part of the Korea-EU bilateral relations, 

"In addition to deepening my understanding of the EU, the Master in European Affairs was in every aspect excellent training experience as it offered numerous discussions, presentations and analytical reports. I have to admit that it was highly intense and I sometimes felt overwhelmed with the volume of readings and assignments during the programme. However, all of this truly helped me to develop my analytical skills, critical thinking, and public speaking. I believe this became the foundation of my professional memos and academic reports. Furthermore, as a PhD journey requires self-discipline and independent research, Sciences Po courses provided me with hardcore training to meet such challenges."

Xiaotong YANG, Project Assistant at the Beijing Organizing Committee for the 2022 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.

"It was challenging in the beginning stage, since I was supposed to think and act like an insider when working with the government officials, and local communities during the risk mitigation and issue tracking. However, it is the fascinating part that I could use the project management skills which gained from Sciences Po, included manage multiple projects and complex tasks on a deadline, liaise with relevant parties and stakeholders, identify and track follow-up actions to plan the work flows, etc. "

Akshaya Jose Devasia, Research, Assessment, and Monitoring Officer at the UN World Food Programme in Cambodia.

"PSIA's pedagogical focus on learning to synthesize and present complex topics in short briefs and presentations is an important career skill that I use frequently at my job. Studying at Sciences Po helped develop my intercultural communication skills which are very beneficial in an international working environment and the degree is helping me to understand and map the strategic interests of different parties (countries, donors, I/LNGOs, and other stakeholders) operating in the same geographical context."

Leia, Assistant Director of the General Counsel’s Office - Ernst & Young in Seoul, graduated Law School

"After the TADS, I joined the global professional services firm of Ernst & Young in Seoul as Assistant Director of the General Counsel’s Office. The day-to-day works at EY combine the two disciplines from my earlier career – issues of international economic law and the management of disputes. As a leader (one of the Big Four) in accounting, consulting and financial advisory services, much of EY’s works engage in the different operational aspects of the capital market which provide a peculiar set-up for legal risk management that ranges from legal issues related to corporate activities such as international IPO and multi-party cross-border contract negotiations to regulatory compliance and accounting fraud litigations. The job gives me both a detailed understanding of cross-border corporate and financial activities and a bird’s-eye view over the multinational regulatory framework that governs it."
