The quest for wisdom, from France to China, of an HEC MBA & Tsinghua MBA dual degree student (class of 2011)
Archive for July, 2010
Tonight is my last night at Expansiel.
So I’m packing all my belongings and getting ready to move back to Paris where I’ll stay for a month before going to China.
I spent my last evening at the Piano Bar watching the football game between Uruguay and the Netherlands (Netherlands won 3 vs. 2). It was a great match but now I’m back in my room, packing my remaining belongings. My window is open and I can hear the youngsters from the Grande Ecole partying and laughing out loud, as usual.
It feels a bit strange to say goodbye to a year I spent here, with all the good memories I accumulated.
Bye bye HEC ~
Summer has arrived. After a little struggle (15°C on June 21st) heat has settled on campus, as well as the football world cup :)
Now, PP1 is almost done for me. I still have a couple of classes next week but I’ll be on vacation right after.
During PP1, we had the options of doing a long internship (5 months) of study electives. I was more interested by classes (and vacations) and I made a scrupulous selection based on my own interests and feedback from previous intakes.
In addition, as I was not accepted to the Luxury track (very selective) I tried to pick classes that would be most useful after my MBA, while being unique and hard to get at Tsinghua, as I will still have the chance to study electives there in September.
As a result, I took the following classes:
The quality of each class was variable, but I was generally very satisfied by my electives.
