I cannot believe but a year has gone by just like that. The day of graduation came and I was still not able to imagine that this was the end, that everything was done. That day I had so many mixed feelings.
The company project gives MBA students the opportunity to put their business lessons into practice
I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to attend the recent Luxury Interactive conference in London both as an observer and as a speaker.
In May, Geneva once again played host to an exclusive event. It was the eleventh European Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition, which I had the opportunity to attend.
Although the finals are over and the grades are in, exploration of the luxury sector continues
Studying for an MBA in luxury means that one has the opportunity to attend sector fairs as well as a trip to one of the luxury markets
A field trip to New York gave students the opportunity to visit various companies from the different luxury sectors and get a glimpse of what happens behind the scenes
We are already in the second half of January, wow, time flies so quickly. We’re well into our classes and new projects. I can honestly say that I managed to forget that I had a Christmas break.
Some of you may wonder why and how an MBA student can have breakfast at a famous jeweller? Well a few of my last projects were dealing with specific companies. I chose one of the famous jewellery companies as my project topic so that’s how I got to experience this acclaimed jeweller at first hand.
I feel I’ll be repeating myself if I say that a lot has been going on in the past 10 days, but then again this is probably something that is very common when one is studying for an MBA degree.
Much has been happening over the last two weeks. We have a few projects currently ongoing. A financial accounting project which is due first, a cultural foundations of luxury brand management project, projects due for class presentation for the managing the global corporation class. I guess you get the picture, we have a lot of work to do.
The courses at Essec are organised in two ways. Some of them stretch throughout the whole term and the others are condensed into two weeks, after which we typically have one individual or group assignment. The assignment usually needs to be handed in before the end of the term.
The school has begun…I’ve met my class and they are all amazing people from all over the world. We are a group of 45…just enough for the diversity and yet not to big. After the first two days, which were mainly based on getting to know each other and the school well, our classes started.
I arrived to Cergy, home of Essec, two days ago. It was pretty hectic before the trip…..checking the lists of things to take, doing the last errands etc.
This Friday was my last day on the job.
