Tell us about your professional career.
Before the Master in Finance, Control and Auditing, I obtained a diploma in accounting and, later, a Bachelor’s degree in Economics and Business from the University of Bologna. During the three-year university course, I had the opportunity of accessing the labor market providing ordinary accounting services to a small local company.
Why did you decide to continue your education and how did you choose BBS?
After receiving my university degree, I felt I still hadn’t acquired real professionalizing skills, that that would allow me to stand out from the other undergraduates: I was looking for a more dynamic, practical educational path, closer to the world of work, a school that would be more focused and less chaotic than university. The Full-time Master in Finance, Control and Auditing perfectly matched all these features.
According to you, what are the program’s strengths?
The strengths of the BBS educational approach are the interaction within the classroom, as well as between the class and the faculty or professionals you come in contact with. Other features that characterize the BBS method are, undoubtedly, the transmission of theoretical bases, necessary to the training of a professional, but never superfluous; the discussion and resolution of practical real case-studies; the speeches by and meetings with company leaders; the team-works necessary to develop the awareness of your role and of how this may be intertwined with other roles and, finally, the setting of tight and motivating deadlines, very close to those that you then encounter in your job.
What are the added values of belonging to the BBS Community?
Belonging to the BBS community means living in a network of professionals coming from diverse and enriching environments, but also carrying out a university career that will prove useful throughout your entire career path.
