It has been really helpful for me as a Fashion Marketing & Management student as I now know the different roles and tasks of people in the various job fields in such a brand. We got a chance to interact and learn from them, as well as the chance to submit our CVs to them which is a big opportunity for all of us”. While Maria Cuadrado, Lecturer, Fashion Marketing commented, ““Under my personal view, these kind of international activities make our students more conscious in how the world of fashion works. Having the opportunity to access to the information of how the best retailing company in the world works from the horse’s mouth is something really valuable. Also being interviewed by professional recruiters is a great experience that only can offer an international school. Now is the moment to cross our fingers and wait for the call!”.

I can’t wait for the launch of their Lingerie and Home store in India!”
