In your opinion, what was the best part of studying at IUM?
The global environment is the best part of studying at IUM. There are students from all over the world that you meet and work with every day. This makes it much easier to understand the differences and similarities of different cultures and countries. In addition, the combination with high requirements and demanding but available professors prepares the students for an international and competitive career. Last but not least, I really enjoyed the different sport activities, parties and trips organized by the Student Association.
What’s your best memory at IUM?
It’s hard to pick just one out, as there are so many fantastic memories from my years at IUM. But maybe it was the Ski trip to Limone in 2005 that we arranged when I was the President of the Student Association. We were around 100 students skiing and partying together in a small Italian Alp village. What a great WE!
Have your studies helped you in your current job, and if so, how?
All the oral presentations I did during my studies at IUM have made me comfortable talking in front of people. This helps me every day in my line of work: being able to make great presentations is a very important factor in sales and any type of management job. There are of course many other things as well, 9 semesters of University helps you grow as a person.
What would you say to potential students who are thinking of joining IUM?
Just do it!…IUM is a great university and I don’t regret my choice at all. I had my best years in Monaco and I met some of my best friends there.
