After 15 years in the medico-social sector, I wanted to give a new dimension to my career and acquire new skills. The MAE allowed me to understand all the components that form a modern company and the current economic challenges. The provision of theoretical and multidisciplinary knowledge, alongside the multicultural interactions between students in initial and continuing education, have enabled me to launch my own innovative project. Within the IAE itself, I was able to present this project at an ‘IAE Nice student-entrepreneur evening’. A few months later, even before the end of my course, I received a promise of employment as a senior executive within a large group.
