“The double degree Master programme “International Management in Asian Context” gave me the opportunity to develop a deeper knowledge of what it means to live, study and work abroad, on a professional level, and also in my personal life. I had the opportunity to travel around the region and discover a culture completely different from the European one, and meet interesting people along these two semesters.
Due to this experience and the international exposure it gave me, I found an internship as an international trade consultant in India. I then got a V.I.E in South Africa for Tata Consultancy Services as an operational consultant. It was a great experience to study at Mahidol, one of the top universities in Thailand, and I highly recommend it!”
