The Study Trip enables to discover the strategic challenges of another region thanks to the contribution of several speakers and specialists
The strongest point of the program is most certainly -for those who are aiming to embrace consulting careers- the exposition to leading firms of this area, which are helping to have the best preparation to get and to perform interviews. The overall quality of the teachers is also highly appreciable, and enables to develop or reinforce skills in topics which will be useful in the future career path(s) chosen.
The Business Strategy and Corporate Finance courses were my favorite courses because they were key topics in the program and they were taught in a very practical and applied way. The Analysis of Negotiation Game and Creativity & Innovation courses are also extremely interesting because of their unconventional and less scholar approach which facilitate the transmission of messages and teachings.
Dubai Study Trip
The Study Trip in Dubai/ Qatar which occurred this year was one of the strongest events of the program. It enables to discover the strategic challenges of another region thanks to the contribution of several speakers and specialists and is a good opportunity to spend time with the other students and teachers in another context.
Advice to students interested in joining the program
The advice I would give to students interested in joining the program would be to take time to analyze their career project. If they are aiming to work in consulting, this program is obviously the best; but if they are interested in careers in the Industry (in strategic department) or in Finance (Funds), the program is also a perfect career facilitator. If they are aware and convinced of that, they will have an enriching year in the Strategic Management program.
