Hi, I'm Saina Kalra from New Delhi, India. I'm currently pursuing my Bachelor's Degree at ESSEC Asia-Pacific in Singapore. Academically, I come from a commerce background and I have majored in subjects like Economics, Accountancy, Business Studies and Mathematics. Apart from this, I hold about 7-8 years of experience in professional anchoring, public speaking and oration. I have been an international award winning debater and have been the youngest winner in the most prestigious MUN conference in the world-New York Model United Nations. Since I have been involved with a lot of international competitions and conferences, I learned the importance of international exposure, which eventually led me to enrol in ESSEC business school .

ESSEC provides unparalleled opportunities for its students to get international exposure; starting from ESSEC’s wide range of 165 partner universities for exchanges, the dual degree track, IBEA track, inter-campus mobility etc.

ESSEC not only lets you design your Degree in your own unique way, it also provides students with hands-on industry experience through internships, which gives the students an edge over others in the competitive business world. Furthermore, the school's credibility as a brand can be known from its vast alumni network ranging from the founder of Accenture to the MD of Twitter in France.

Personally, I chose ESSEC not only because it’s the best business school in France but also because it really helps its students prepare for an international career by providing the right kind of networking opportunities, academic learning and global exposure. Also, the strong focus on learning 2 new languages apart from English definitely gives ESSEC students a competitive advantage over others. Most importantly, I chose the Singapore track because of the booming economy of the country (the fastest growing economy in the world), multi-cultural environment and also its popularity as a study destination. The Global BBA program at ESSEC is a perfect blend of academic learning, international exposure and hands-on industry experience.
