Dont ever mention French Ivy League.... That doesnt exist. Also there is no need to mentioning that its the top engineering college... interviewers and HR knows which universities are top and which ones are not, if they dont agree with your statement it may sound misleading (and you dont want to)

Also, if you mention ranked 1st and its not HEC Paris this may be seem as a joke (even if there are very good programs at ESCP, ESSEC, EDHEC....)

Dont put c.GPA, just GPA

Dont include such a long list of relevante coursework, stick to 1 sentence max

Include who you worked with for research papers or where they were published

Barclays is not a MM Bank, also saying that it was the largest FinTech program in the finance sector...... again misleading 

The rest seems pretty solid

 

Thank you for the great advices.

Yeah, I thought the HR in UK might not be very knowledgeable about the schools in France. But you are right it’s their job so they should know these things however, I really doubt that that they would know my UG college or its level since it is not very well known outside of the region. French Ivy sound kind of not good, yeah deleting it but I should keep the Grande Ecole mention right?

For shorter relevant courses, do you think I should stick with all Finance related classes or should I throw in a couple of econ,management or digital classes in there as well?

Papers haven’t published anywhere and done alone(exept econ growth one), but they are right there in terms of academic quality etc. they even helped me to get research oriented offer before.

Ha ok, got it with the Barclays. However, it actually was the largest FinTech program in the finance sector during that year. How come it’s misleading? How should I rewrite it? 

The rest of the places in the work experience are fine then?
