“The management faculty is the equivalent of a good business school, except that it doesn’t cost €15,000! We are really lucky in France in that we can get access to university for free. Economics, accounting, management...we get to explore lots of things and discover all the various functions found in companies, which allows us to build our career path.” She thinks that it is very useful training for successful careers. “It’s true that there is a lot of theory in the early years, which is not my favourite,” she says. What motivates her is the internship she will have to do this year. “I would like to find a position in sustainable tourism,” she adds.
