Why did you choose this program? I chose this program because of its unique and innovative features. I believe that studying at three of the world’s most prestigious universities, while living an immersive social and residential experience, is the most attractive characteristic. I personally wanted to get out of my comfort zone and live in different continents, improving my international experience. Finally, I chose this program because I believe that developing a global mindset will be more and more important for anyone who’s interested in management and strategy.

What do you enjoy about the program so far? I was immediately surprised by the cohort of the program. Everybody is extremely talented and has an impressive background. I’d also say that the mixed cultures provide incredible opportunities to learn something new every day. Moreover, I love the UVA campus (Grounds) and its facilities. The program also has an extraordinary faculty, very high academic standards, and a strong focus on career opportunities.
