Hello everyone, ciao a tutti !

My name is Anca Ghinea and I am a M1 student in the specialized master of Strategy & Management of International Business, I joined the Cergy Campus in August 2023.

I have always been driven to search for the unknown and curiosity has got me to all the places I have been so far. At 18 years old, I left my home country and moved to Milan, Italy, to do my bachelor degree in Bocconi University. I always knew I wanted to deepen my studies in Finance and my bachelor university gave me the perfect launch into the business environment. With a strong background in economics and finance, I wanted to further enrich my academic path. In my 3rd year of bachelor, I did an exchange semester in France, more specifically Lille, where I understood my next destination had to be France. ESSEC Business School is the perfect setting to immerse myself in the business environment of the 21st century: with the campus only 35 mins away from La Defense, one of the key locations for the headquarters of top companies (Deloitte, Societe Generale, etc.). On top of that, Paris is the capital of beauty and culture: it is a city full of history, heritage and spirit.

For 3 years, I lived the "dolce vita", where I learned Italian, made lots of international friends and traveled along the Mediterranean Coast. During this time, I discovered new passions, such as yoga, and enhanced older hobbies, such as sailing. Even though I started not so long ago, I already found people that share the same interests as I do and ESSEC makes sure daily we are able to realise everything we would like: the campus is full of study rooms, video studios, library, and the sports center is open all day. All students are here to network, sharing their stories and experiences.

Overall, ESSEC is a campus that values the input of its students and stimulates us to reach our best. 2 years ago, one student ambassador cleared my doubts regarding life on campus, application process and differences between programs. Now, it is my turn to give back and accompany prospective students in their decision-making process. So, I look forward to talking to many of you!
