The reasons why I came here, is first of all, for the international opportunity. The second one is because I wanted to develop my skills and knowledge in management after doing a BTS CGO and the DCG back in France. And the last reason was to live something completely different.

What I enjoyed here was the discovery of a new method of work, how we were supposed to write our assessments, the exchange in the class with the teachers, the fact that they push us to find new information and develop our group work skills. Actually, the University prepares us for the professional world but also if we want to continue to a master. I liked the fact the University is here at every step and is very glad to help you.
