B.S. Business Administration, University of the Philippines (Diliman)
Deciding to take your MBA is a major step for your career, and figuring out what school to do it in is one of the hardest parts. Over a year ago, I was in your exact shoes – trying to figure out which program would make the most sense for me and my career goals.
I came from working mostly with startups and fast-growing SMEs in the Philippines. I started in the Marketing team for a human resource services firm and shifted to Human Resources in a public transportation company. Working in those types of companies meant I was used to very dynamic teams, I got involved in projects outside my function, and I developed a career background that was different and multi-faceted. I was able to interact with stakeholders across different walks of life and from countries like Singapore, the United States, and China.
I was looking for a business school that embraced diversity, challenged its students to be global leaders, and provided learning opportunities outside of the traditional classroom setting. That’s what led me to ESSEC.
Every day, I’m exposed to a variety of career backgrounds, nationalities, and personal experiences through my professors and my cohort. I gain insight on the different ways to analyze complex situations and solve business problems. ESSEC further supplements this learning by organizing field trips, networking sessions, guest lectures, and social events.
If you want to learn more, feel free to send me a message. I’d be more than happy to answer your questions about ESSEC, the MBA application, or the decision-making process in general. I look forward to hearing from you!
