JESÚS OF SPAIN, EIBM (2009)
Marketing Director, Giorgio Armani and Designer Brands, Asia Pacific Region, L’Oréal (Hong Kong, China)
"My relationship with L’Oréal began at a company event held by Audencia Business School, where I applied to a marketing position with them… I finished my studies in June and had a job with L’Oréal in July. When you go abroad, people will recognise Audencia’s name and tell you it is a great school."
Aline Hoffmann of Brazil (EIBM 2013)
Project manager at Revevol
"Something I love about working for a growing company is that I have the opportunity to be on different types of projects at the same time. I really like being in contact with different types of people and businesses. There’s no routine, so each day is a new challenge. This year, I went to Brazil, Italy, Switzerland, Belgium, India, Dubai and Spain."
"After my engineering degree, my professional development was slowed by my insufficient knowledge of management. The engineering profession often involves management concepts... I wanted to acquire additional quality training and international exposure to advance my career.
The EIBM programme helped me to gain advanced skills in finance, marketing and management in an international context. The quality of teaching is outstanding, and the degree has the advantage of being well-known in three countries, an attractive quality for those who want to work abroad."
