Adrienne Fraser, American
Leisure & Lifestyle
University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Kenan-Flagler Business School MBA graduate, class of 2018

"I was familiar with EDHEC's excellent reputation through the "Doing Business In (DBI)" exchange partnership with my school, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Kenan-Flagler Business School where I earned my MBA. When I chose Leisure & Lifestyle summer programme, I knew that I was getting quality instruction and experiences because of EDHEC's supportive business partners and professors. As an already working professional, I was already used to working and attending graduate school year round; attending a summer program was par for the course. Summer is a great time to continue education because the pace of daily campus life is generally more relaxed, which encourages better student-teacher communication, new perspectives, and information retention. I really enjoyed learning about different industries and the unique needs of businesses in a new geographical area, France. I gained exposure to France-based companies and international perspectives that I can contribute to any of my future endeavors. Additionally, having the opportunity to meet other business students from around the world was priceless. I made great connections with my fellow classmates, which really enriched my academic/professional network. I would absolutely recommend it! The EDHEC Summer Programme was a very positive experience and I look back on both my personal and educational memories fondly."
