      Testimony

      Cédric PAOURI
      Management Controller, Devoteam

      From the very outset at Paris School of Business, I had a distinctly international outlook. The school has secured a number of partnerships with renowned universities, including Boston University where I spent the third year of the program. The American-style culture of innovation and leadership left such an impression on me that I went back for a second time during a gap year. My aim was to obtain a helicopter view on finance by coupling my specialization in Accounting, Consulting & Audit with a double degree in Financial Management.

      The study path at Paris School of Business has created a host of professional openings. I was able to carry out an internship as a reporting analyst at ClubFunding and a work-study period as a financial auditor at KPMG Luxembourg.
