"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 the 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 programme 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."
