Intern, Finance
Masters in Finance & Risk Management, ESSCA, France

“Following my studies, I joined MMV’s Finance department for five months. My main project was to conduct a review of MMV’s Internal Control System, which gave me the opportunity to interact with various departments and to learn a lot about MMV’s activities in a short period of time. I could always rely on the Finance team’s availability and patience to explain things further, when needed.

Working for a not-for-profit Swiss foundation was a new experience for me. Coming from France, I wasn’t used to speaking English in a professional setting and working at MMV gave me the chance to speak English on a daily basis. I really enjoyed the international and friendly setting and I am convinced that this experience helped me to stand out among many candidates for my next position. I highly recommend that students studying Finance (or other areas of study) keep their eye out for an internship opportunity with MMV.”
