“I have always been very attracted to Asia, in particular to China. Before joining the ISUGA curriculum at the EMBA, I had already been studying Chinese. I find that living on a daily basis with Chinese students and with those originating from Korea, Japan, Nepal, Vietnam and Indonesia is a real wealth !”
