English, Hindi, learning Chinese and French
My name is Avantika Dube and I am a year 2 student pursuing my Global Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration. I am from India and I’ve spent most of my life in the metropolitan city of Mumbai and Delhi, and for the last one year I have called Singapore my home and I am absolutely loving it! I speak English and Hindi and I am currently learning French and Chinese at ESSEC.
When I was in my 12th grade, closer to deciding my college, I realized that what I actually wanted was “exposure” in all aspects. I wanted to go to a college that will push me to explore my strengths and weaknesses as well as meet people from different cultural backgrounds and learn from them. That’s when I got to know about ESSEC.
The ESSEC Global BBA program has an excellent curriculum which has a perfect balance between academics and exposure. It has three campuses in three different continents. It also has 170 partner universities all over the world. So far, I am enjoying the opportunity given to study at the wonderful campus in Singapore and to explore the Singaporean culture. Next year, I will be flying halfway across the world to experience the ESSEC campus in France and also complete my exchange program in one of the partner universities of my choice. Just one year in ESSEC has left a very positive impact in my life and has definitely accelerated my growth.
In terms of campus life, ESSEC masters it all. It has more than 100 student associations covering all possible hobbies and talents. I am personally part of two clubs, The Clique (a fashion magazine) and Notorious (a music association). Various festivals are celebrated at ESSEC, where students get to experience the different cultures of their fellow classmates. My personal favourites are the Chinese New Year and Diwali celebrations!
In short, I am personally very proud of my decision to join ESSEC Business School to pursue my Global BBA degree, and I want to help you in making a decision that you will cherish! Send me your questions and let's make it possible!
