Stories

Anqi YANG

2013-14

The first year of my MSc in Global Management was a year of building the fundamentals skills necessary for almost every aspect of my professional life. Courses like Quantitative Methods gave me skills related to a several fields of study, like economics and finance, helping me to read and analyze data in a more objective way. Geopolitics provided me with a comprehensive vision of world trade. Also, a full day’s work in an English-speaking environment strengthened my preparation for work in an international context. The courses were extremely useful and gave me confidence in my competences. What I also liked a lot is the diversity of teachers; they are from different countries, which really gives me a feeling of studying in an international school.

Romain PENNEL

2013-14

After an unusual study track, with a two-year high school diploma in Marketing and Trade, I chose to go abroad and complete a Bachelor in English. Graduated with a 3-year Bachelor degree, I followed the two-year MSc programme at NEOMA Business School. That was the perfect solution for me, to be able to get an MSc degree. The first year at NEOMA BS prepared me to follow the courses in the MSc in Marketing French Excellence, and face professional challenges in the international business arena.
