Before ESSEC, I was an assistant project manager in a construction company and was thinking about changes. Now at ESSEC, I have benefited a lot from my new business perspective, thanks to the gorgeous people I met here. I am very glad that I came here and I am totally optimistic about my future. I hope I can work in a combined field where both engineering and business knowledge are required, and I am sure ESSEC will help me with its high-quality education resources.
