About you

You are in the final year of the EDHEC Master in Management-Business Management and chose the MSc in Data Analytics & Artificial Intelligence for your Master 2. What are your job aspirations?

After graduation, I plan to work in digital marketing. According to Statista, global retail e-commerce sales grew by more than 25 percent since this pandemic crisis. Digital marketing still has huge potential to develop and discover. That is why I chose Data Analytics & Artificial Intelligence for my Master 2. As we know, data and analytics are the keys to digital marketing.

The gap year. Because during my professional immersion year, I did two internships in Paris. This experience helps me to crave my career path and make me clarify what I need to improve in my M2 study.


What has been the greatest opportunity you have had at EDHEC?

The Alumni network. During my internship research, I tried to send some cold messages to EDHEC alumni. They were so welcome and professional. I did learn some interview tips and got some interview opportunities from them. I hope I could help other alumni in the future.
