The Monaco MBA made the world smaller.
On the one hand, the university is an amazingly international place with people from virtually everywhere. On the other hand, the great number of business contacts I made during the MBA year – including the ones mediated by the Mentorship program – opened doors to new opportunities. When I add to these factors the solid and objective orientation from the faculty (absolutely essential), the challenging Corporate Consulting Projects developed during the program, and the specificity of the Luxury Management path that I chose, I was able to turn my ideas into a plan, and the plan gave birth to my own company, 377 Luxury Lifestyle.
And now is the time when I can really see how rich the experience at IUM had been: I am not only putting into practice what I learned, but mostly I am using it to actually change the context in which I do business. It has been an intense, priceless and life changing experience – and I will always take it with me.
