THE IMPACT ON MY ACADEMIC JOURNEY

Mariya NONCHEVA, Bulgarian, EDHEC - 2016
Business Management

When choosing my Master in Management Programme, I had four key requirements – top rank university, career prospects, international dimension and quality of teaching and students’ life. EDHEC was my first choice, offering all these and even more. So far, my five months here have been a transformational journey towards identifying my personal and professional goals and mastering the critical technical and soft skills to achieve those. Thanks to the great support of our teachers, programme director and career centre, I am on my way to secure a placement for my professional immersion and have the confidence to pursue my ambitions and to face every challenge on the way.

The 30% Excellence scholarship played a tremendous role in making my studies at EDHEC possible. It is a great recognition of past academic achievements and an exceptional opportunity that the school gives to everyone who wants to be part of the EDHEC experience. The 30% Excellence scholarship is not only a kick-start of your studies - it also helps you to stand out and differentiate yourself when applying for an internship or a job placement. More and more companies are looking for candidates with a demonstrated academic excellence. In this sense, the scholarship gives a competitive edge to your CV and boosts your career prospects. Of course, this comes with the responsibility to maintain this excellence throughout your studies at EDHEC and to continuously justify your scholarship eligibility, but I believe that the effort really pays off and is 100% worth it.
