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."

Leia Shin : "An intellectual impetus to drive yoru career to further heights" 

"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."
