EMLV school and Campus
The school and campus experience were amazing, we had all the facilities we needed in our disposal. The campus has a huge digital library where we can access thousands of books and articles, it has a good restaurant and café, a cozy place to take a break and chill and a gym. The administration was making sure that our journey is enjoyable at EMLV.
They arranged several events for us including job fairs which helped us in terms of preparation for the Internships.
The curriculum covered the important and much-needed courses for the International Business program with the digital aspect which was wonderful. I enjoyed learning new tools and techniques from them.
The evaluation process was also interesting, we had group presentations, reports, and exams.
The group projects were one of my favorite one where I got the chance of working with other students with a different culture and learned so many new kinds of stuff.
A career in the International Trade and Business Development
Looking to my previous work experience and the knowledge I gained from this programme, I will be probably pursuing my career in the field of International Trade and Business Development.
I would be happy to use the knowledge and skills I have gained from this programme and to contribute for the development and betterment of International Trade, Foreign Direct Investment and Import Export of Afghanistan.
I also wish to start teaching in the near future, because I have a sense of giving back to the community and empowering the youths with the knowledge I have in the field of International Business.
Finding a proper and ideal Internship is not an easy task in Europe especially when you are not speaking their native language. But it’s not impossible! And EMLV helped me.
I started searching for my Internship last December, and I had applied continuously since then. Fortunately, I found the one which matched my knowledge, skills, and experience in Germany in the Field of Marketing and PR at My Cruise Excursion.
French people, baguettes and wines!
French people are really rich in terms of Culture and Heritage.
In fact I had the prejudices that they love baguettes and wines, which both are true, but it’s funny though!
Afghan and French People share a long and strong relationship throughout history. One of the differences I found while interacting with French people was that it takes time for them to make a friendship with foreigners and once they are your friend it will be a lifetime friendship.
