QS-EDHEC Business Scholarship: 2018 Winner

QS-EDHEC Business Scholarship: 2018 Winner main image

Included among the available QS Scholarships is the exclusive EDHEC Business School scholarship, offered in partnership between QS and EDHEC, which supports students enrolling in an MSc or MiM program at the business school, covering 50 percent of the winner’s tuition fees.  

The scholarship is awarded to any attendees of the QS World Grad School Tour who have successfully completed the admissions process at EDHEC, and can indicate a good deal of academic excellence, as well as a clear awareness of how studying at EDHEC will help them to reach their educational and professional goals.

This year, the scholarship was awarded to Italian student Ludovico Galanti, who will study EDHEC’s MSc in Financial Markets, starting in September.

Ludovico previously studied business administration for his bachelor’s degree, but has decided to pursue financial markets as he’s passionate about numbers and statistics, and hopes that EDHEC will “make me re-evaluate my conception of how things work, while also challenging me with a workload which will adequately prepare me for the financial markets industry.”

He was attracted to studying at EDHEC due to the school’s highly prestigious reputation and adaptable curriculum, as “the financial landscape is changing rapidly, and EDHEC seems to have fully embraced the technological disruption in its core teachings.”

Ludovico was attracted to Paris itself due to its status “as of one of the primary European financial centers.” Having previously visited France as a tourist, he says he “cannot wait to get there and start a new chapter of my life. I love the fact that in France, openness and international perspectives are combined with a strong national culture.”

After his degree, Ludovico hopes to apply his knowledge to start his own enterprise or work in investment banking, but would enjoy any role in financial markets.

Advice for other applicants

“Be honest, not just with the university and the organizations offering scholarships, but mainly to yourself. If you believe in the program and in the help the scholarship would provide, go for it. Scholarships are meant for motivated students of all backgrounds, they are a testament of your human capital. It is not only about yourself, but about the influence the scholarship would have in changing your path. Try to explain why it would profoundly impact your master experience and career perspective.”
