While completing courses to fulfill a master's degree at Reims Management School in France, Lucas Boudaud spent a semester abroad in Berkeley, registering for UC Berkeley Extension's 4-Month IDP in Finance. Boudaud cites the program’s student diversity—both geographically and professionally—in contributing to his overall experience.

"With pretty high academic expectations, the investment turned out to be an unquestionable success," Boudaud says. "Instructors are accessible, resources are available and the program provides further insights and practical mastering in a broad range of technical skills."

Boudaud is employing those skills while working as a trader assistant at Societe Generale Corporate and Investment Banking (SGCIB) in New York City.
