Guilia La Placa, Italian, EDHEC-2019
MSc in Marketing Management
Marketing Research Manager, Consumer Market Intelligence Department at L’Oréal, Paris

"EDHEC’s MSc in Marketing Management allowed me to gain in-depth knowledge of every aspect of marketing, from brand management to digital marketing and communication, in addition to specific programmes such as Tableau and SPSS. Through this MSc, I discovered and worked in numerous, diverse industries, such as luxury, IT, appliances and chemistry, which inspired and helped me to choose the right one for me.

EDHEC has helped me to enhance my networking and teamworking skills, as well as to create a cross-continental network of contacts.

Thanks to the excellent Career Centre, I have gained in-depth insights into myself and the business world. I had the opportunity to participate in workshops with top companies, such as L’Oréal, Cartier and LVMH Group, as well as small start-ups, thanks to the EDHEC’s incubator at Station F in Paris. All of these activities enabled me to learn from experts and taught me to manage and present real projects for real companies.

As an active member of EDHEC Alumni, EDHEC has become an important landmark for me. I feel part of a warm community, with which I will always be in contact."
