Nabil BOURENANE - Student of the AM International Financial Analysis

Student – Class of 2018

After earning a master’s degree in financial management from the University of East London in 2008, I had the chance to work in several roles in the financial sector (financial analyst, insolvency administrator, consultant) and gain a lot of professional experience in international settings. However, I got to a stage in my career where it seemed necessary for me to develop my skills and update my knowledge in a constantly changing sector.
In other terms, to move onto the next level of my professional life, I needed to accrue greater technical specialisation through theoretical knowledge, practical skills and tools, earn certification for these skills and also update my knowledge on legal matters and the new technologies that are upending the world of finance. So I chose the Advanced Masters for all these reasons as well as for its reputation, pedagogy, professors and certifications.
The AM IFA provided me with a great deal of knowledge and know-how in “classic” finance. Also, the programme led me to discover new aspects such as behavioural finance and financial technology. Lastly, It helped me identify more precisely my professional objectives and the steps I needed to take to achieve them.

Student – Class of 2018

As a student in the Masters in Management programme at NEOMA BS, in my last year I chose the specialisation offered by the school and entered the AM programme for International Financial Analysis. At the end of the programme I will have a Master in Management and Advanced Masters dual degree. I chose this curriculum to enhance my interim year working at KPMG in Luxembourg with different professional experiences in finance and also to earn the certifications that the AM offers: CFA, AMF, Bloomberg. Also, the AM gave me solid skills in corporate finance, market finance and obviously financial analysis. The courses helped me to prepare myself for the career I wanted to enter and provided me with the means to get there. Lastly, the ethical aspect of the programme really interested me because I wanted to aim at responsible finance, which is an essential part for me.

I have a passion for finance, so I decided to focus on it after beginning my career in the field of supply chain. I entered the Advanced Masters in International Financial Analysis to earn the certifications it offered, the CFA in particular. Also, the AM is connected to a great alumni network that you can tap into. My internship as a buy-side analyst allowed me to enrich my skills base and comfortably begin my career.
