What they say about us

2020, what a year! Nobody can deny that it was a challenging one. Actually an unprecedented one. But for me, this year was a deeply transformational one. Not only for my working habits and personal life, but it also marked a new learning journey for me. A powerful experience which led me to valuable educational insights and instilled me with many years of professional experience. But most importantly this journey led me to adopt a new mindset. Taught me how to remain resilient, stay relevant and adopt a value-creation attitude. If one this pandemic has taught us one thing, it’s that at the end of the day it is not the aptitude that matters most, but rather the attitude of people. Well SDA Bocconi and Esade, helped me strengthen both. This is what it means to be in the thrusted hands of outstanding business schools. I thank them deeply for that. Once an EMMS, always an EMMS.

I chose EMMS because of its excellent reputation as a leading and challenging program for people who wish to improve their management skills in an international environment. Most importantly, it offered me the opportunity to continue my career and embark on my higher education at the same time. EMMS gave me a good foundation for the transition from a traditional B2B sales background to 360 digital business world, and it contributed significantly to my professional advancement by making me feel more confident and competent in raising my professional profile.
