Summary

As a Consultant at Accenture during over 7 years, I acquired an expertise in Information Technology by conducting many implementation projects. In addition, I developed skills in Project Management and Banking Industry mainly in Core Banking and Credit Operations Systems. I recently concluded an International MBA at Reims Management School in France. During this graduate program I realized an exchange program of one semester at Tsinghua University in China. This International MBA was for me an opportunity to broaden my skills in fields such as Finance, Strategy and Business Planning and to work in a multi-cultural environment.
