Words from Alumni

Double Master Alumna: Ms CHENMs CHEN, Yanru Tina (Double Master Programme 2019 Graduate)

'I am so grateful that I had such a precious opportunity to start my double master program. At the very beginning, I struggled on adapting myself to different cultures and learning patterns. Unlike the previous way of learning, ESSCA encourages students to learn in an exploratory way and more focuses on practical application. When I overcame all the challenges, my communication skills and learning ability were greatly improved and I also met so many amazing people during the process. After a year of traveling Europe with new friends I met, I can’t believe this journey abroad is coming to an end. This year was one of the most memorable periods in my life.'

Double Master Alumna: Ms LIMs LI, Xin Carrie (Double Master Programme 2019 Graduate)

I have to say that the whole experience in ESSCA is one of the most valuable things in my life. Most of the courses are taught in different ways including enterprise visits, outdoor activities and communicating with entrepreneurs. ESSCA has paid a lot of attention to get the students involved. I have gained professional management and financial knowledge which is super useful for my future work. The other big part of this program is experiencing different cultures. After getting along with classmates from over ten countries in Budapest campus, I am far more open-minded ever. After all, moving a place every half a year is a big challenge. I am proud that I survived and have so many precious memories with my friends.'
