Mariya NONCHEVA, Bulgarian, EDHEC - 2016, Master in Management (M1) student, Excellence Scholarship holder

"When choosing my Master in Management Programme, I had four key requirements – top rank university, career prospects, international dimension and quality of teaching and students’ life. EDHEC was my first choice, offering all these and even more. So far, my five months here have been a transformational journey towards identifying my personal and professional goals and mastering the critical technical and soft skills to achieve those. Thanks to the great support of our teachers, programme director and career centre, I am on my way to secure a placement for my professional immersion and have the confidence to pursue my ambitions and to face every challenge on the way.

The 40% Excellence scholarship played a tremendous role in making my studies at EDHEC possible. It is a great recognition of past academic achievements and an exceptional opportunity that the school gives to everyone who wants to be part of the EDHEC experience. The 40% Excellence scholarship is not only a kick-start of your studies - it also helps you to stand out and differentiate yourself when applying for an internship or a job placement. More and more companies are looking for candidates with a demonstrated academic excellence. In this sense, the scholarship gives a competitive edge to your CV and boosts your career prospects. Of course, this comes with the responsibility to maintain this excellence throughout your studies at EDHEC and to continuously justify your scholarship eligibility, but I believe that the effort really pays off and is 100% worth it."

Liliana Maria URIBE LEON, Colombian, EDHEC -2016, MSc Corporate Finance & Banking student

"I selected EDHEC because it has a reputation of a world class Business School, and because of the high international ratio among its students and faculty. As for the programme I chose it because of the high level of specialization it offers through both the core subjects and the Majors, also because of the integrated learning framework with its seminars, lectures, case studies and the master project. With this programme, I have learnt to work as part of a team, specifically an international team; it has also challenged me to go out my comfort zone to think critically and creatively. Finally, I have been able to get a wider knowledge and better understanding of the current Corporate Finance world.

My experience with EDHEC goes above and beyond what I expected I have learnt like I never did before, not only academic knowledge but I have grown as a human being.

First of all the Excellence scholarship was an essential financial support that allowed me to come to EDHEC, thanks to it I did not have to get an additional student loan. Moreover, being able to mention this academic achievement in my CV is a very valuable asset that makes me stand out among other candidates to recruiting companies
This scholarship encouraged me to give my best and make an effort to obtain it, applying is quite straightforward and EDHEC was always there to support me in the process."
