Hi everyone!

My name is Adithya and I'm from Kerala, India. I'm currently pursuing a Master in Management at ESSEC Business School's Asia-Pacific campus. Before joining ESSEC, I worked in product management at Collins Aerospace (RTX). Over time, I realized that I needed to broaden my horizons and upskill myself to make better decisions and have a greater impact. I chose ESSEC because of its unparalleled flexibility and tailor-made program structure, which would give me the traction I need to achieve my personal and professional goals.

In my free time, I enjoy Formula 1, badminton, cricket, football, kayaking and trekking. I'm also a huge dog lover and have a Labrador Retriever back home.

I'm here as a student ambassador to tell you why you should join ESSEC:

  • ESSEC is a diverse and multicultural community where you can learn something new every day about different industries, insights from people's work experiences, and cultural cues from your peers.
  • At ESSEC APAC, you'll be immersed in the working environment from the very first month through the Junior Consultant Experience (JCE), 3Rs wherein where you'll work with real clients on real challenges and deliver projects with real business impact.
  • The Singapore campus is a close-knit community that's efficient in all aspects. As an engineering student with no prior experience in management studies, I appreciate the individual attention that professors give to students in the smaller cohorts.
  • ESSEC offers a multitude of clubs, chairs, and tracks to choose from so you can tailor the education to your needs and aspirations.
  • One of the key features that attracted me to ESSEC is its apprenticeship program, which allows you to study and work simultaneously.
  • ESSEC has one of the biggest alumni network with more than 62,000 alumni all across the world. Being in the ESSEC journey, you will realize the worth of this and it will help you kickstart your career at your dream company.

If you have any questions about ESSEC or student life in Singapore such as food, housing, or transportation, please feel free to reach out to me. I'm excited to start this journey with you and answer any questions or concerns you may have.
