London, 18th of November, 2020. Tram Anh Nguyen, CFTE’s co-founder, has joined Advisory Board of EDHEC’s prestigious Master in Finance after 3 years of partnership between CFTE and the EDHEC master to bring great education closer to the industry.
Tram Anh Nguyen, CFTE’s co-founder, has recently joined the Advisory Board of EDHEC. This comes after a 3 year’s long relationship between EDHEC and CFTE in which CFTE has been providing fintech and entrepreneurship education to the 450 finance master students at EDHEC. Previous to that, EDHEC and CFTE partnered on the Hybrid Fintech Specialisation programme in Q1 2019.
EDHEC Business School, based in France, is ranked in the Top 3 business schools for finance worldwide. Michelle Sisto, Associate Dean for Graduate Studies at EDHEC, said “We are honoured to welcome Tram Anh Nguyen, co-founder of the CFTE, as a new member of our Financial Economics Advisory Board. Tram Anh’s expertise in fintech, track record in building links between finance, tech and artificial intelligence, and commitment to both education and diversity and inclusion will bring great value to our board. Her perspective will contribute to EDHEC’s vision as we build our programmes and prepare our students for the future of finance and society.”
“Over the last three years, we have worked with CFTE to bring their expertise on technology and financial entrepreneurship to EDHEC masters in finance students. We are delighted to welcome Tram Anh Nguyen to our Advisory Board as we continue to evolve our programmes in line with industry needs”, added Laurent Deville, Director of the Financial Economics Track at EDHEC.
Tram Anh Nguyen noted, “I am delighted to join the Advisory Board of EDHEC Master in Finance. EDHEC is for me a leader in education in finance by its entrepreneurship mindset. I am honoured to support the Board in the strategy and their mission of transformation to offer the best opportunities to their students”.
Her joining to the board of EDHEC aligns perfectly with Tram Anh’s missions of bringing great finance education, which is what CFTE currently does. As an Advisory member, she will be helping curate EDHEC’s programmes and bringing EDHEC closer to the industry – which she believes is essential to help talent find opportunities.
It is her connection to the industry which might prove extremely valuable for EDHEC. As Tram Anh argues, today, graduates require industry knowledge. It is not about learning about the past, but about ensuring that students are trained to be employable in today’s world.
