Jan Habětínek currently works as a Senior Analyst at IQVIA, where he initially started as an intern. He also worked as an intern at L'Oreal and PwC. During his studies, Jan actively participated in competitions organized by consulting companies, with the following awards: EY Management Consulting Challenge 2018 - TOP 5, KPMG International Case Competition 2018 - national finals. He was also a scholarship holder for young researchers.
"Studying in Prague and Strasbourg simultaneously gave me the opportunity to explore two very different approaches to the content and organization of the study - thanks to this I got very good theoretical and technical knowledge in the first year of study, then I could practice it in my second year."

"The program is much more challenging for someone who did not graduate from Bachelor’s programs at Charles University, but I never regret my choice. Besides the chance to live in two amazing European cities and two diplomas, it gave me the opportunity to learn from some of the most prestigious practitioners in my field and the best academics in respective cities."

Thibault Parreau currently works as a Business Development Manager at Auto1 Group in Berlin Germany. He started here in October 2019. Before that he managed to pass a traineeship at Comtravo as a Business Development Intern also in Berlin. Before CSF, he finished his Bachelor in French Anger. During his studies at the IES Thibault worked also as a Market Analyst Intern at SAP Concur or Project Financial Analyst at Accenture.

"This program's been very demanding and challenging from time to time but the reward at the end of the road was priceless. I've learnt so much from experienced professors in classes such as Econometrics, Macroeconomics or Strategic Management and it led me to strengthen my financial modelling skills and to think outside of the box. Studying at the IES will give you a strong and polyvalent background and will prepare you for careers in Finance, Consulting, Tech, Research, Economics and so on."
