Estelle Kamhoua

Previous Degree: Master’s in Financial Engineering from the University of Montplaisir in Tunisia
What languages do you speak? French, English
What did you choose to study from ASE? ASE allows me to gain useful technical skills in economics, statistics and mathematics as well as a series of software, which allows me to be effective and efficient in applied research and professional writing. Most importantly, my skill in English has improved enormously such that I feel confident of pursuing my dream of obtaining a PhD at a top university in the US or the UK.
What do you enjoy most about studying at ASE? The long, tireless and sleepless nights throughout a three months’ semester are an unforgettable experience (smile). Though ASE seems challenging at first, it seems fun and motivating throughout my time here.
Previous research experience: Before ASE I worked as a Finance and Accounting Consultant in the small and medium sized enterprise at LeaderSide Partner (LSP) in Yaounde, Cameroun.
What are your plans after you finish your degree at ASE? My personal aspiration is to obtain a Ph.D. in Development Economics as a tool that I intend to use in helping to solve the many economic situations in Africa through my work with multi-lateral cooperation while also creating vibrant economic institutions to support or aid in the problem of poverty reduction.
What would your advice be to future students of ASE? Student experience is one of the biggest assets at ASE in addition to the wonderful student-professors’ relationship.
