Meet with Briana Longe, Bachelor 2019 Alumna.
She is currently working as an investment banking analyst, specifically in syndicated and leveraged finance.
Which skill(s) in particular did you develop during your degree?
I was able to develop a foundation in finance and learn about business from an international perspective.
Why did you choose Monaco for your Bachelor’s degree?
I wanted to go to university abroad to experience another culture. IUM was so international and was the perfect melting pot to learn about a variety of cultures. I also wanted to enrich my soft skills and learn about business, and the diversity at IUM afforded me this opportunity.
What is your favorite place in Monaco?
I love the port, the lights at night are beautiful.
What’s next on your bucket list?
Currently opening a restaurant in the Greater London area, so fingers crossed successful business owner is next.
What is the best business advice you’ve received?
I think in finance specifically, it’s easy to get lost in the numbers or the deal, but every assignment, case study, or article always focuses on what the business does and how they make money. This big-picture thinking is invaluable.
Favorite memories about IUM?
I made lifelong friends there. I have fond memories, but I can’t pick just one.
