Bonjour! السلام عليكم! Hola! 你好! Привет! 今日!

That’s just some basic vocabulary for you, to make sure you survive your stay at ESSEC. About the pronunciation, well, I’ll leave it to you to figure that out. ESSEC’s diversity and internationality is not only engendered by its unique student body, composed of more than 90 different nationalities, but also by the program itself with its footprints in Singapore, Paris and Rabat. This is one of the many reasons, why I selected ESSEC over prestigious universities in the US or UK. I was in born in Munich, but my parents’ caprices and their work brought me fairly long to New Zealand and India. I grew up with four siblings and together with my older brother went to a public high school. When it came down to finding the right university and field of study, I made sure to get some diversified experience from Pre-college programs at Cornell and Harvard, as well as internships in Hong Kong and France. My experiences lead me to ESSEC and I am currently spending my first year in Paris.
Whatever is on your mind, hit me up via e-mail, even if you just want to ask about the pronunciation of Привет, though I can’t help you out with that either…
