Hello, Bonjour, Hola, Ola!
My name is Thiago Tostes and I’m a proud 3rd-year student of ESSEC Global BBA. Having lived my whole life in Rio de Janeiro, deciding to move to France wasn’t the easiest decision I have taken. I studied my whole life in the same school with the same people, and when I graduated, we were only 8! It was very comfortable to stay in Rio and follow the path of least resistance like all of my friends, but I knew I wanted more! Now, looking back, I’m so glad I got out of my comfort zone and decided to take the first step. Being an ESSEC Global BBA student means that you’ll be able to interact with people from more than 90 countries and be exposed to so many cultures and ideas. This diversity in profiles is not only in culture but also in taste and life goals. I, for example, want to become a documentary filmmaker, but I have friends that want to become politicians, musicians, managers, financial advisors, etc. This enables you to broaden your perspective and have a wider notion of the possibilities that are out there.
If that isn’t enough for you, the ability to always be moving with the different intercampus and exchange programs that ESSEC provides means that you’ll never stop exploring. I had the opportunity to go to Singapore last year and I’m very excited to go to The University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia.
So if you have anything that you would like to know or if you just want to chat, hit me up with an email and I’ll do my best to answer it.
