IÉSEG is the perfect option if you are interested in receiving a very complete management education and interacting in a multicultural environment. During my time at the School, I have met lot of great people, including many international students, with whom I share similar interests. The staff has a lot of experience with international students and is bilingual so you can easily communicate with them. I find the program in itself to be very well rounded and contemporary, the courses are interactive and the professors are experts in the fields they teach. At the end of every academic year students undertake internships, which helps put into practice the theory we’ve learned in our classes. Maria, Venezuela, 2019
