I graduated from the MBA program at ESA business school in June 2016, a program that had a significant impact on my personal and professional life.

After finishing my studies in electromechanical engineering, my work experience consisted of six years at a multinational engineering consultancy firm. Conducting mostly technical activities, any position beyond the technical field was out of reach.

Therefore, I decided to grow my career by aiming for commercial and managerial roles outside the technical world and saw this MBA program as a great opportunity that will allow me to change either functions or sectors.

The ESA MBA program helped me understand all aspects of any organization. It built my teamwork skills by working with different profiles of people throughout the program. This MBA’s various teaching styles as well as the program being focused on personalized leadership courses were all of great added value to me. It was for me a gateway to move to a career that fits more my personality and my business objectives. Prior to the program completion, the MBA helped me land a great position.

Today, my responsibility as a project manager consists of the successful initiation, planning, design, execution, monitoring, controlling and closure of the project. This challenging transition required an important coupling between my technical experience and the knowledge developed during my MBA. I am applying what I have acquired throughout my MBA in all stages of my project.

My ESA MBA was a life-changing experience. However, there are plenty of challenges to face after the MBA in order to practically apply all the skills learned. It is a big responsibility that one needs to consistently assume
