"There are students from everywhere in the world...we get experiences in international group work, which is very important because there are different ways of thinking and working depending on where you come from...The MSc in Management-Engineering seems to be very relevant because many companies need engineers with additional knowledge in finance, management and marketing. Audencia was one of the first to develop this kind of double degree."
