How I became a trader | EDHEC Alumni
EDHEC Business School, Laeticia Benaddi
Trader Assistant, BNP Paribas Singapore
EDHEC International BBA, 2018 // EDHEC MSc Finance, 2019
Je suis Laeticia, diplômée EDHEC International 2018 et MSc in Finance 2019. J'ai réalisé un bac S section européenne avec mention j'ai décidé de m'orienter vers un programme post bac sans prépa ou prépa intégrée parce que je voulais directement me diriger vers un programme plus pratique et concret.
Dès la première année j'ai réalisé un stage en banque en commençant par une agence BNP Paribas. Ensuite en deuxième année j'ai continué à me spécialiser en finance via un stage en contrôle de gestion chez Cooptalis, et puis à nouveau chez BNP Paribas en analyse risque crédit, et puis continuer en banque en ALM, asset and liabilities management chez HSBC France à Paris.
À l'issue de mon MSc j'ai pu réalisé mon stage de fin d'études à la BNP encore une fois sur le desk Equity Finance. J'ai eu l'occasion de rejoindre dès la première année l’association Junior Entreprise de l'EDHEC BBA qui est très reconnue par les entreprises.
C'est un réel atout sur le CV puisque lorsque l'on recherche le premier sage et qu'on n'a pas encore d'expérience, on peut mettre en avant sa première expérience associative qui est à la fois une expérience associative étudiante et l'expérience professionnelle. À l'issue de ma quatrième année de bachelor, on a l'opportunité de continuer et d'approfondir les connaissances qu'on a en MSc ou Master 2 dans toutes les universités.
Donc moi j'ai choisi de poursuivre à l'EDHEC au sein d'un des meilleurs masters au monde, en MSc in Finance ce qui ne m'a permis d'aller encore plus loin de ce que j'avais pu voir pendant le bachelor; le tout dans un environnement encore plus international. À l'issue de mon MSc j'ai rejoint l'équipe Equity Finance de la BNP en tant que trader. C’est un milieu très compétitif, le bachelor puis le MSc m'ont permis d'avoir tous les bagages nécessaires pour accéder à ce poste de trader. À l’issue de cette première expérience en Trading Equity j'ai eu l'opportunité de rejoindre un nouveau desk de trading au sein de la BNP Paribas qui est sur un desk de trading repo à Singapour.

I graduated from the very first EDHEC International BBA class in 1992. This program helped me a lot to build my career. I still use today what I learned 27 years ago in Finance and Marketing. Moët Hennesy is regularly looking for young graduates who are ready to go abroad and work hard. We like people with perseverance, pragmatism and who like to take risks.
François Xavier DESPLANCKE
EDHEC International BBA, 1992 PDG Moët Hennessy Diageo France
I spent all my career in the tech/digital industry, working for both big tech names (Google, LinkedIn, Rakuten) but also smaller start-ups (Deliveroo, Rocket Internet). Mostly, I worked in the APAC region: Shanghai, Tokyo, and now Singapore. EDHEC Business School helped me to have a global mindset and vision. My top 1 advice to the next generation of international marketers would be: don’t aim for big companies during the first 5 years of your work life. Go for startups, the earlier stage the better, so you’ll get to have a strategic and holistic role. This will help you a lot to get strong expertise quickly
