Hello, Namaste!

I worked in an IT firm for about 4 years and these years made me realize that technology and business go hand in hand. Technology itself is meaningless if it cannot cater to business needs and vice versa. I believe knowledge without skillsets that would help in the application of the acquired knowledge in the real world is incomplete.

It is this belief that motivated me to apply for the Strategy & Management major of the Global MBA at ESSEC. I saw the program as a perfect platform which would help me in satiating my curiosity and acquiring the necessary skillset in the business domain. I saw this as a great opportunity to learn how to implement strategies and solutions through leadership roles. Also, coming from a diverse country (India), diversity of the cohort was also one of my key factors at zeroing down on this school.

My journey at ESSEC has been a wonderful experience so far. It started with a 4-day long trip to the French countryside in Chablis with vineyard visiting, bike rides, hiking and loads of food. Like they say, “When in France, do like the French”. This gave us time as a cohort to bond and know each other in person. I have been able to meet some amazing Industry leaders and ESSEC alumni all thanks to the networking events hosted by the school. The course is very structured with a lot of external certifications like ‘Google Analytics’ and ‘Tableau’. These have all been integrated into the program after consulting the industry leaders and their demands. This purely shows how much the school is
willing to invest in its students.

I believe the program would be a good fit for anyone who aims to build general management and functional skills which would help them in a career ahead. It is a complete package of highly intense courses, networking, and great fun (which I think Is the most important!). I’d be more than happy to help anyone who has any doubts regarding the Global MBA program so feel free to drop me a message and I shall get back to you as soon as possible.

Good Luck!
