Ma carrière :Throughout my undergraduate and postgraduate studies, and my work experience, I have acquired a broad range of skills and capabilities, all of which are directly relevant to a career in investment banking and corporate finance. My recent MSc dissertation focused on the current financial crisis in relation to European M&As and my first internship in Milan also provided me with exposure to M&As, an area I am particularly interested in pursuing in my future career. I am inspired most when given the opportunity to work in a challenging environment that encourages collaboration with colleagues and clients to facilitate the achievement of common goals. Utilising my exceptional bilingual communication skills, I am able to formulate strong working relationships and to gain the trust and confidence of all stakeholders. I have also proven that I can work well on my own initiative to ensure that all tasks are completed to a high quality standard and within set timeframes. If your organisation recruits high calibre graduates with the potential to add immediate value, please email me on giagheddumichele at and I will call you back to discuss our possible future relationship.
