Professional experience which has had much influence on my master decision. Very useful to understand how a big company such as Bloomberg works, what is behind "customer service" and how to efficiently manage on one side IT technologies / developments and on the other side finacial knoledge and customer relationships. Finally, it has been a beautiful personal experience: 10 weeks at Bloomberg helps also students to understand their career objectives.
