QTEM Masters Network
After a Bachelor’s degree in Economics and Management, I enrolled in the Master’s program in Finance and participated in QTEM, an amazing experience both at an academic level and at a personal level, which helped me develop useful skills for the future market.
I now live in Frankfurt, where I work as an analyst in the Finance Directorate of the European Central Bank, dealing with budgeting, strategic planning, project governance and management reporting. In the future I’d like to continue this career in large-scale international institutions.
