This Master has enabled me to develop a true understanding of business, to broaden my horizons and to rub shoulders with people from different standards and ways of life

  • Why have you chosen HEC?

HEC is the best business school in Europe! The education is of a high-standard and the cooperation and support between the graduates is really good. After my scientific education, I could not have found a better business education which allowed me to get into one of the best consulting firms.

  • What has your specialised master from HEC taught you (both personally and professionally)?

This Master in Strategic Management has enabled me to develop a true understanding of business, to broaden my horizons and to rub shoulders with people from different standards and ways of life.

  • Lessons, conferences, meetings and parties... What are your most memorable experiences from your year at HEC?

The Caribbean cruise, the atmosphere between the HEC Grande Ecole and the Masters, the Thursday parties, the BDE campaign; it was my last shot at student life before beginning my professional life.

  • Finally, what advice would you give to students who aspire to follow a career in your area of business?

I would advise them to make sure that they are motivated for this career and ready to take on the pace of work which is required. Also they should get fully acquainted with the other consultants in the job, in order to understand the world of this profession and finally, they should choose the firm, not for its name, but for its mood and its atmosphere.
