The introductions of ever more sophisticated tools for collecting and analysing data have made the process of investing increasingly reliant on data-influenced methods for decision making among wealth managers.

Meaningful work experience

Much of the time, work experience for students can mean simple tasks over short periods of time, and many students scramble to build up months of work experience with multiple employers. 

Do those students really have the best opportunity to experience the world of work fully, the best opportunity to network or the best opportunities to show prospective employers how valuable they could be? 

The emlyon business school Specialised Programme in Quantitative Finance course includes a significant work placement of six months, giving postgraduates a substantial amount of time to really experience the financial industry and perhaps put their new knowledge into practice.

It's not just French culture, food and language you'll be absorbing - Paris itself has a unique culture. 

Learning a new language may be tricky at first, but it's your window into new experiences. 

After all, the emlyon Specialised Programme in Quantitative Finance classes are taught in English, so you'll have plenty of time to focus on study where you're more comfortable before adventuring into a truly global city to practice your French.
