“My experience at ESE Florence was unique, insightful and exceeded my expectations. Coming from a legal background, pursuing a short business course was new and challenging, but I learned more than I thought I would.

Every single subject I took was relevant, not only because of the business theory, but also for the practical applications and cultural aspects we discussed. I see things in a new light now.

Education in India is very different, there is less focus on critical thinking or classroom discussions like we had here. All my classes at ESE had a different style, from case-studies to presentations and practical business examples from the professors.

I was particularly interested in Environmental Economics, I believe topics like circular economy, environmental issues and sustainable finance will matter more and more in the future. The guest lectures from business professionals from different sectors were also very insightful. They varied from doing business in Mexico and entrepreneurship in Japan to blockchain and crypto.

We also had the opportunity to visit and learn from interesting international and local businesses in and around Florence. I also enjoyed the extra activities such as the museum and garden visits and the hike in the Tuscan hills. Florence offers a surprisingly great diversity, both at the ESE school as well as in the city. There are lots of opportunities to socialize and network, more than I imagined!

I am now looking for new job opportunities in Europe in which I can combine my professional experience as a lawyer with my newly acquired skills and knowledge in international business and management. I feel more prepared for business-related roles now.”
