“Be ready to embrace new challenges”

Written on 12 Nov 2019.


"I decided to enroll in the Master in Management at EDHEC for many reasons.

I was concluding my Bachelor’s degree in Economics & Management at Ca’Foscari University of Venice (Italy) and had to decide what to do next. I already knew two things: firstly, I wanted to pursue a Master’s degree and secondly, I wanted to study in a top-class Business School, discover what academia beyond the Italian borders, and discover a new culture and new ways of doing business.

EDHEC perfectly fitted the bill! Its Master in Management provides high-quality academic content that covers all the business areas that future corporate leaders need, outstanding tools to improve the students’ capabilities, such as SAP and ARIS, and a strong business network, laying the foundation for a smoother path towards the job market.

At EDHEC, I was able to expand my international exposure. I had the opportunity to meet people from all over the globe, from India to the USA. It changed the way I see the world. I learnt how interconnecting complementary skills and mindsets produce fantastic results. I also organised the second edition of TEDxEDHECBusinessSchool, with the support a team of over 20 people from different nationalities across several departments. I am convinced that these experiences will help me evolve efficiently in multicultural corporate environments.

Last but not least, I am extremely grateful that EDHEC’s international network enabled me to be selected to take part in the Stanford International Honors Program during the whole summer period. I obtained an “Intensive Study” certificate in Technology & Innovation Management at the heart of the Silicon Valley. I also had the opportunity to meet the highest executives of Google, Facebook, and Tesla, increasing my network and shaping the EDHEC brand overseas.

My advice to future EDHEC students? Embrace the new challenges with all your hearts! Thanks to the opportunities EDHEC offers and with your engagement and motivation, you will be able to meet your targets and become the best version of yourself. Last but not least, never forget to “Make an Impact”!
