As a foreigner, choosing amongst other institutions/cities in France, I found in the academic plan the perfect balance between theoretical knowledge and professional experience, which is something that not all schools are able to offer. Besides this balance, the fact that the courses are developed in English provides me with wider international knowledge, but also opens the door to more possibilities of international work experience. After having some professional experience, I look forward to applying the hands-on knowledge into my courses and to complement each side with the other. I expect my career not to be developed in only one country; I look forward to the international experience and knowledge.
