I’m Qiyao and I’m student ambassador for the MSc in Data Sciences & Business Analytics program jointly at ESSEC Business School and CentraleSupélec. Prior to joining this program, I graduated from Sino-French Institute, Renmin University of China and my major before was Finance. During my previous internship in Asset Management and Risk Management, I felt the need to learn more about Data Mining and Business Analytics, and ESSEC provided me with the best opportunity to do so.
I chose our MSc in Data Sciences & Business Analytics program mainly because of its solid curriculum, top faculty and strong career support. This program is designed to train students to be experts in Data Sciences and in Business Analytics. And as a student here, I gain a lot of advanced analytical skills, and learn how to deal with complex business problems in a more systematic way.
During my study here, I found that ESSEC is really a student-oriented school. All professors here are very friendly and passionate. And our school is very welcoming towards international students. Here I have a real community feel and I can develop strong friendships with people from diverse backgrounds. In addition, ESSEC often organizes campus events such as career fairs, finance forum, etc. allowing us to strengthen our career goals and improve our professional competences.
Please feel free to contact me in case you have any questions. I would be more than happy to assist you!
