This is my Credit Motivation

Dear Investors,

My name is Gaetan Rieben, a 26 years old a part-time student in International Business Management in Geneva, and an insurance broker in Lausanne. I will be proudly graduated this summer with my Bachelor of Science and will be working for a few months to keep investing in my future postgraduate studies.

Throughout my career, I have earned a recognized certificate as an insurance assistant by the formal association for insurance training and gained secure industry experience before enrolling for my bachelor's degree. During this curriculum at Haute Ecole de Gestion de Genève, I have been highly interested in analytics and applied economics and found a rising passion.

Furthermore, considering industry experts, big data is more valuable than goods trade across the world, and most companies require understanding data. I am willing to pursue a career in this industry.
Therefore, I have been accepted by Macquarie University to enroll for a master in Business Analytics in Sydney, starting in February 2021. I will be learning many applications of data analysis and would be able to work as a data analyst, business analyst, financial analyst, and so forth. I would like to study in Australia to gain international experience and point-of-view. 

I have already saved money to cover my daily expenses for the first year, such as accommodation, transportation, insurance, and will be authorized to work 20 hours a week and 40 hours a week during school breaks. I do not doubt to enjoy this condition to gain experience in the data field. In any case, I have a consequent CV to work in the industry field part-time. Given this fact, I am looking for financial support to pay my tuition fee of AUD 79'000, in other terms, around 50'000 CHF.

Unfortunately, Swiss banks can not lend me money. Indeed, they are looking for full repayment before my 30. As I will be finishing this program at almost 29, I can not confirm this specific condition.

Please take note that my parents, who are owner of a house in Saillon, agree to enter as a guarantor of the loan. Even in that case, I don't find any suitable option provided by Swiss Banks.

Your support will enable me to finance my master program while studying and working to fund my daily expenses. I do no doubt my capacity to repay this loan, as a postgraduate student is paid in average annual salary AUD 98600 and full budget based on this insight has been established.

Plans after study

Upon graduation, I am interested in staying in Australia to gain industry experience before coming back to Switzerland. I want to work as a business analyst for a private company, or a consultancy group of the fabulous BIG 4. I would be kindly interested in working in forensic as well for financial companies, in the Insurance industry, for instance. Besides, after a few years of full-time work, I would eventually be interested in completing my education with an MBA. Finally, I would love to set up my own company specialized in data analytics.
