Michael’s testimonial

5th-year student – apprentice at Aéroport de Paris (Paris Airports – Real Estate Department)

MichaelKeslassy“A student at IPAG Business School since my 1st year, I interned at Bouygues Real Estate, Unibail-Rodamco and Aéroport de Paris, which allowed me to discover the way a company works and enabled me to target the real estate sector.
IPAG’s Finance Master 1 program allowed me to specialize and to acquire all skills necessary to work in the financial department of any company. The Control, Accounting and Audit Master 2 program is even more specialized and grants us access to a wide range of positions, from management control to audit. Thanks to the quality and diversity of the faculty, which includes many Professors-Researchers, we get as close as possible to the reality of the business world.
Generally speaking, IPAG Business School, and especially its Control, Accounting and Audit Master’s program, gives us all the keys to a successful career in Finance.”
