After one year of study and 6 months of successful internship at Société Générale, I signed a two-year VIE contract to work in one of the bank’s fixed income desks in New York.

I believe it is because of this programme I was able to secure an internship as a Financial Analyst at the European headquarters of Nike in the Netherlands. During my Internship I applied aspects of what I learned quickly and effectively and ultimately add value to my team. As a result, I was offered a full-time position.
