Delphine | Consultant, INDEFI
- Actualité Sciences Po
CAN YOU INTRODUCE YOURSELF IN A FEW WORDS AND DESCRIBE YOUR CURRENT POSITION?
After obtaining the baccalauréat, I did a Bachelor’s degree in Economics and Finance at the Université Catholique de Lille. I was in the « top class » so I was able to do my entire second year in Canada at MacEwan University (Edmonton). During the exchange year, I got involved with two amazing organizations: one doing drama of improvisation, the other working for sustainable development. With this team, we came with a solution to reduce food waste on the campus by renting tupperware: the GreenBox. I did an internship every year of my degree: at the Ministry of the Environment (France), at a manufacturing facility and at a startup company in Lille.
I wanted to learn more about consulting and sustainable development, so I looked at the Master Finance & Strategy at Sciences Po. During my gap year, between the first and the second year of my master’s degree, I did an internship at EY in financial auditing and at an investment fund as an ESG Analyst.
I was also the committee president of WeStart, an entrepreneurship association at Sciences Po.
In second year, I chose to specialize in Strategy. I then did an internship at McKinsey as a Business Analyst. I was a very interesting experience; I got the chance to work on three missions in the “Sustainable Practice”.
TELL US ABOUT THE COMPANY YOU WORK FOR AND WHAT ARE YOUR MAIN DUTIES?
INDEFI is a consulting firm specialized in Private Equity and ESG. Its missions are mainly Due Diligences and Vendor Due Diligence, usually for investment funds. The firm is divided into three functions (Private Equity, ESG et Asset Management) which allows us to work on varied assignments. Each day can be different as a consultant: we often have expert calls, market research, benchmark, team meetings or meeting with a client, report, presentation, and detailed record. In addition to our “business” tasks, we can also get involved in some projects or pro bono to boost the firm’s offerings and support initiatives or charitable projects.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE MOST ABOUT YOUR JOB?
What I enjoy the most is the range of subjects and the integration of ESG in our missions. The later, I believe, should be more integrated in corporation’s global strategies. Especially considering recent extreme climatic events. Of our recent projects, I have a special fondness for the “Red Cross Insertion”. With my team, we created an environmental impact action plan and then accompanied them over one year, implementing it in all their affiliates. I was an environmental audit of their entire network.
WHAT DID YOU LEARN FROM YOUR MASTER’S DEGREE?
My experience at Sciences Po had a profound impact on me and was very instructive overall. I was very stimulating, I had interesting professors, speakers, and courses. I had the opportunity to discover other subjects et some additional curses (outside the core curriculum of the Master): geopolitics, entrepreneurship and drawing classes. Sciences Po taught me to be curious, to work for the common good, to be open-minded and to go be outgoing.
WHAT WAS THE COURSE YOU ENJOYED THE MOST?
All my courses were fascinating, either the first or the second year, but I would say that the one that impressed me the most was Responsible Advantage course led by Michel Fredeau and Fabien Hassan because it combined strategy and sustainable development: two subjects I was very interested in. We had speakers who were experts on their subjects, and the fact that we were in small group allowed us to speak freely.
Student spotlight: Pierre from the Master Finance and Strategy
- © Pierre Letellier
COULD YOU TALK US THROUGH YOUR BACKGROUND AND YOUR PASSION FOR AEROSPACE?
My name is Pierre Letellier, I come from the city of Tours. I am a first-year student in the Master Finance and Strategy at the School of Management and Impact. In high school, I found a passion for aerospace, in all its political, historical, and technical dimensions. I obtained a Baccalauréat in Science, specialized in mathematics, and was accepted in a classe préparatoire at The Institut National des Sciences Appliquées de Lyon (INSA Lyon).
As I wanted to go to the ISAE-SUPAERO, I had initially decided to do a classe préparatoire, but I was pleasantly surprised to be accepted at Sciences Po!
I then discovered that I could do a double degree with ISAE-SUPAERO. From then on, I set myself the goal of proving my passion for aerospace through experience rather than through academic training.
HOW DO YOU CONNECT YOUR PASSION WITH YOUR STUDIES?
I started to work at the Centre Spatial Universitaire Grenoblois (CSUG) along with my Bachelor's degree. Having only theoretical knowledge in economics, I undertook to study and to model the question of space debris with the multidisciplinary glance of a Sciencespiste. The internship report was kept by the CSUG as it is confidential.
Mrs. Stéphanie Lizy-Destrez, professor-researcher at ISAE-SUPAERO, found me by chance on Twitter where I was talking about my work. Shortly after taking the good news, I did my second research internship at DCAS, the engineering school's laboratory. This “hybrid” internship’s goal was to study the viability of a satellite project, the "Recycler". The satellite should provide a second life to space debris in geostationary orbit (GEO). It can also generate a profit, by offering services in orbit. My research on the subject, deliberately techno-economic, was peer reviewed before being published in the scientific journal Acta Astronautica.
WHY DID YOU CHOSE THE MASTER FINANCE & STRATEGY OVER DOING REASERCH?
Since my academic exchange at UC Berkeley in 3rd year of my Bachelor's degree, I spent most of my time working with American startups from New Space. Among them was Skyloom, which designs a laser communication technology between satellites.
During the presentation of my research at the International Aeronautics Congress (IAC), I got the business cards of French New Space companies. All these experiences and projects reflect the reality that I have never felt comfortable being only a student in Human Sciences.
To build bridges between disciplines, between sectors, you often have to step out of the classroom. Aerospace is precisely one of these cross-disciplinary fields that calls for the connection of "Human" and "Hard" sciences.
It is especially by entering the Finance and Strategy Master's program that I was able to begin my transition to the business world. Today, I am preparing my application for the double degree with ISAE-SUPAERO. It is time to reconnect with my main disciplines: economics, strategy, engineering.
WHAT LESSONS HAVE YOU LEARNED FROM YOUR EXPERIENCES?
I will conclude with a lesson learned from my internship. I was supposed to identify the economic constraints that the satellite had to overcome to generate a profit, but the analysis itself could not be done without a prior engineering documentation. I learned that the Industrial innovation works by going back and forth between economic and technical analysis: one needs the other to progress intelligently.

A social media influencer as a master’s student at Sciences Po
Omar Farooq, a 28-year-old social media influencer and filmmaker from Bahrain, more commonly known as #OmarTries, has become a household name in his home country and the wider Gulf region. This year, accompanied by Campus France, Farooq lived and shared his experience as an international student in several French higher education institutions.
For a day, he lived and shared his experience as a master’s student at Sciences Po in Paris, France within the School of Management and Impact and the Master Marketing: New Luxury & Art de Vivre. Omar attends a course that combines both fashion and sustainability. Taught by Anna Stervinou, this course helps students understand the challenges facing the fashion industry and guides them toward a positive impact. Indeed, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and sustainability are crucial topics for this sector, which is also facing societal and digital transitions.
The Master Marketing: New Luxury & Art de Vivre provides students with the knowledge, new skills, and necessary tools to contribute to the future of the luxury industry in every aspect, including the sociological ones. Eva Bellinghausen, the program director, explains “luxury is not just an economic sector, it is deeply rooted in a culture and a society”, which requires an excellent knowledge of the sociological and cultural aspects of this sector.
Students also learn to develop their critical and analytical skills regarding the issues facing the luxury industry in a complex economical, and constantly evolving environment.
This program is accompanied and supported by Chanel, Christian Louboutin, LVMH and Richemont.
Thomas | Consultant, Oliver Wyman
- © Thomas Gonda
Can you introduce yourself in a few words and describe your current position and main duties?
Hello, my name is Thomas, and I am half Belgian half Czech although I have been living in France for quite a while now. I joined the International Business and Sustainability master in 2020, right after finishing my MEng. (Master of Engineering) in Design Engineering at Imperial College London.
I am currently working as a strategy consultant within Oliver Wyman’s Paris office. As a junior, I am focused on learning core consulting skills such as problem structuring, analysis and producing deliverables efficiently. For now, I work across industries and capabilities, but I hope to specialise in energy and climate/sustainability in the next year or two. On the side, I am also involved in internal initiatives such as developing a travel carbon footprint calculator that will be launched globally.
What master's degree from the School of Management and Impact did you take and what did it do for your current job?
I decided to join the Master in International Business and Sustainability not only out of sheer curiosity and passion for sustainability but also because I thought it complemented well my engineering profile. This way I now sit at the intersection between technology, business and sustainability is right where I want to be. I hope this will allow me to deliver real-world impact.
Did you have the opportunity to take a sabbatical year? What internship did you complete during your time in the program?
I did not take a sabbatical year because I was quite eager to start my professional life. However, I still managed to do two internships. One over the summer at Schneider Electric within their Access to Energy division. I did both strategy and business development work for rapidly deployable solar solutions, working closely with large organisations like the United Nation. And my final year internship as a sustainability consultant at Deloitte where I worked on many projects like Net Zero strategies, climate risk analysis or a farm data management platform.
On top of that, during my first year, I had a part-time job as a project manager for the European Syndicate of Yeast Producers (Sciences Po will open doors you would not even know existed!). I was also participating in an accelerator programme with my AgTech startup at the time.
What was your favourite course?
One of my favourite courses probably was Doing Business in Emerging Markets. It was taught by three senior staff from the OECD and was essentially a crash course on how to launch a business in an emerging country. It had the perfect balance between learning about international policy frameworks and developing our business sense by asking ourselves very practical business questions. I thought it brought the best of Sciences Po into a business class.
If you had to give one piece of advice to future graduates, what would it be?
Go for it, try and experiment. It is easy to get caught up in tunnel vision where you are focused on getting top grades and the optimum experiences to land your first dream job. Yet I think university is a great place for you to get curious, try new things and fail without much consequences.
