Ciao a tutti! Hi everyone!

My name is Valentina, I was born in Rome, Italy where I grew up and lived until I was 24 years old. After I graduated in law, I wanted to explore the international business world and I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to move to the US to work for a big international corporation. I was supposed to remain in Houston, Texas for only 18 months, but I made myself comfortable and I stayed for five years; I came back to Europe a few months ago to start my Global MBA in Luxury Brand Management at ESSEC.

I’ve always had an inclination for the luxury world: as an Italian and Roman, my whole life has been filled with beauty and elegance, but the five years of distance from my home country and a deeper knowledge of the business world, made me understand that I want to make the luxury world my job and my daily life. Hence I applied and was accepted into the Luxury Brand Management major of the ESSEC Global MBA. As far as I am concerned, I am very happy with the program and no place has ever felt more right than this.

I am part of those MBA candidates aiming to the so called “triple jump”: change of industry, function, and location, which clearly makes me an incurable optimistic. Therefore, if what you are looking for is more info on the school and program, tips on how to make an informed decision for such an important step in your life, but also if you need a good injection of optimism, I am the right person to have a chat with!

Looking forward to getting to know you!
