Hi there,

If you are on this page, you must be interested by the SMIB program and might have some questions you couldn't find the answers to on the program's web page. Hopefully, I will be able to help you decide on your future at ESSEC!

Let me first tell you a bit about myself: I was still not set on a specific job when I got my Msc in computer sciences and engineering from INSA Lyon in 2016, at the time, the only thing I was sure of was that I wanted to go international in a challenging environment.

That is why I did a 2-year French International Internship (V.I.E) in Australia and then worked for a year in New Zealand as a senior IT consultant. As I felt that I was lacking some skills to complement my engineering background and I wanted to continue seeing the world, I looked at various MS programs.

In the end I only applied for the SMIB as the program perfectly matched my expectations: a master with a broad range of business skills in an international dimension with a stimulating learning environment.

Among the wide range of locations to study, I chose the Asia-Pacific Campus as I truly believe Singapore to be the Gateway to Asia, with its rich multicultural environment and more importantly, a great starting point for whoever wants to become a young expatriate.

If you can see yourself, even just a little, in my career path, let's discuss it together! I will be more than happy to share and answer any of your questions!
