Here is Fabio, a graduated student from Italy. That desperately looking for a way to choose, and eventually (or especially ) be admitted in a Phd In Econ, or Finance.
A little slice of me: I was born a grew up in south of italy, my academic journey starts in Naples, and get end in Milan with master of science in Trading and Risk management. In spring/summer (May/August) 2010 i have been at Stanford University as exchange student. In September 2011 i started worked as research assistant, and in November 2011 i was hired by IntesaSanpaologroup as research analyst at Management Board Chairman office. But...i already feel really bored in doing that (despite the "cool" name "research analyst", is nothing more than build up database a make same correlation among variable..so that the boss can say : after econometric studies.....bla bla bla), so i would really like to be get in phd in econ or finance.
One HUGE PROBLEM my academic background is not outstanding at all... and my gpa in Italian terms is 26 out of 30 (with a final grade of 104 out of 110 ) in GPA terms i think thats about 3.2 or something about.
I Hope that this forum will help me. (or washing out all my dream eheheheh)
