¡Hola!
My name is María Alejandra Ávila, I was born and raised in Bogota, Colombia and I am an M2 (Master 2) student of the Master SMIB at ESSEC Business School.
Studying at ESSEC for me is more than doing a Master; it is striving to take chances that I was not even considering possible before. I am aware of how hard and competitive the future might be, in fact, a while ago I was there, probably as you are now, facing the decision of what’s next and hoping to take the correct actions that will lead me to fulfill my dreams.
When I decided to study the Master SMIB, I did it because I wanted to make a change in my career and develop my abilities within one of the leading Consulting Companies. I was and still am very curious to experience the dynamic and challenging world of consultancy because I truly believe it is the professional path that will help me the most to become the businesswoman I envision in the following years.
Finally, I would like to share with you how proud I am to have enrolled in this Master not only because it is one of the most recognized in the world but also because it provides what today’s business world needs, allowing us, students, to boost our careers and develop ourselves in extraordinary ways.
Please do not hesitate to get in touch, I would be more than happy to answer your questions!
