Jennifer Choi is a third year student at Parisian business school EMLV. Born in South Korea, she has lived in various countries but has called Paris home in the last few years. Find out about her experience in the Master Programme.
The first three-year cycle of the Master Programme enables students to learn the fundamentals of management and to define their personal and professional goals.
Supportive teaching methods
Jennifer has had a previous academic experience in a large public university, where individual student support from the professors can rarely be provided. At EMLV, the young South Korean woman particularly appreciates the professor’s accessibility.
“I find the classes to be very interactive, creative and personal”.
Professors are used to meeting students in their offices and offer support in case a concept or an assignment should require further explanation. Jennifer has the feeling that the members of faculty are genuinely interested in the students’ progress and their career objectives.
Sports and student activities
At Pôle Léonard de Vinci’s three schools, EMLV, engineering school ESILV and digital school IIM, sport is mandatory. As part of the curriculum, students dedicate each Thursday afternoon to the practice of a sport, at beginner or advanced level. Jennifer chose karate but could have tried herself to athletics, badminton, basketball or fencing to name but a few.
Jennifer was positively impressed at how passionate students are about their schools. The student union and the fourty student associations make for a great atmosphere on campus. They organize activities every week and promote the school spirit.
Proximity to the business world
EMLV is conveniently located in the heart of Paris-La Défense Business district, next to major multinationals. The Corporate Relation Department organizes, among many missions, various events that benefit both students and businesses: forums, job fairs, speakers, etc. The faculty continuously adapts the programmes to ever-changing economic trends in order to ensure that students are taught the latest, most up-to-date information.
“I am taking a lot of classes about globalization, we’re learning about marketing strategies of Kodak, of Ikea, which is very intriguing”.
EMLV offers cutting-edge courses that cover a variety of fundamental disciplines including finance, sales, accounting, marketing, human resources, and procurement.
Studying abroad in Paris
Of course, Paris plays a major role in Jennifer’s positive experience as a Master Programme student at EMLV. Jennifer found accomodation without having to resort to the school’s housing platform which comes in handy for international students. She is lucky enough to live within walking distance from campus. She enjoys visiting Paris with friends in her free time and stopping for the occasional coffee. Paris is full of opportunities and the young woman encourages international students to make the move and come study at EMLV!
