My interest in finance was spurred during my undergraduate program in Prague where I targeted mainly finance courses. As I became more interested in this area I began to further complement my academic financial background with finance-related extracurricular activities. During my undergraduate studies, I have advanced in my professional career working as an Analyst at Erste Corporate Finance.

After finishing my undergraduate studies, I made a very important decision to pursue a Master’s programme at the University of St. Gallen. Master’s degree in Banking and Finance is a natural extension of my interest and experience in finance.

In Fall 2017, I will be spending a semester in the MBA program at University McGill in Montreal – leading Canadian university. I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the Fondation Zdenek et Michaela Bakala for making my stay possible. Their support will help me to fully realize my potential and to develop both personally and professionally.
