Tell us about your International Experience trip. Where did you go? What was your favorite experience?

As part of Yale SOM's International Experience course offering, I had the opportunity to visit London and Paris - two of the most important financial centers in Europe (and the most beautiful cities I have visited) - with 20 other classmates from the MBA program. The focus of the trip was sustainable finance & investment decisions that take environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors into account. Our schedule was designed in a manner that we spent equal amounts of time both in Paris and London, meeting with regulators, asset managers, and securities issuers, to gain an understanding of the rise of sustainable finance and critical contemporary issues relevant to it. The weeks were full of company visits, breathtaking views (view from the top of the Sacre Couer and the Eiffel tower), delicious food, and cultural appreciation. My favorite activities were: 1) Discussions with Ms. Sylvie Goulard, Second Deputy Governor of Banque de France to discuss the role of central banking and the financial sector in addressing ESG risks. The discussions provided us with insights from the policymaker's perspective. 2) Company visits to Schneider Electric in Paris: I really enjoyed visiting their headquarters in Rueil-Malmaison, France, learning how a Fortune 500 company engaging in energy management and automation thinks about ESG adoption and enforcement. 3) The panoramic tour of the Left Bank, Notre-Dame, Montmartre, the place that nurtured most of the great artists and writers living in France this past century (Monet, Picasso, van Gogh) and the breath-taking view from the Sacré-Cœur Basilica.
