After my bachelor in Italy, I knew I wanted to pursue a career in Marketing, but I wanted to be exposed to a more international environment. Therefore, I chose MSc Marketing at GEM where I had the chance to interact and work with 13 different nationalities in a small class size.
The program is professionally oriented. Students also receive help with their CVs, cover letter and with interview tips in order to facilitate their step into the working environment.
Passionate about sports since young age, during the GEM career fair I was lucky enough to meet the Nike internship recruitment team. 3 months after the end of my classes I found myself in the Netherlands starting my marketing internship at the European Headquarters of one of the global leaders within the Sports Industry.
Currently I am working within the Nike Sports Marketing department, where I can leverage every day the communication and interpersonal skills I developed at GEM thanks to its international approach. - Pietro Cantanna, MSc Marketing 2017 Graduate, Sports Marketing Specialist at NIKE
As a graduate in International Relations with 5 years’ work experience promoting International Education in Mexico, I recognized that to enhance my business acumen and career opportunities, I would my need to follow a Masters degree.
The MSc Marketing at Grenoble Ecole de Management offered an ideal academic and cultural opportunity to study in English at a top business European School.
Over the first year I gained vast and invaluable knowledge from an excellent international faculty and enjoyed studying in such a multicultural group.
During the second part of the program I felt privileged to be able to access the European job market and find an internship at Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise, a French technology company operating in over 100 countries around the world.
An international career had now become open to me as my internship turned into a job offer and I joined the Marketing and Communications division at the headquarters in Paris.
Soon after, I was offered a promotion to the position of Network Partner Programs Director and moved with Alcatel-Lucent to Milan, Italy. Thanks to my experience at GEM I now felt equipped with the international qualification and network to drive my career forward and reach unimaginable places.
One of the key reasons why I chose this program was my desire to have a marketing-centric master program which was strongly theoretical in nature and included practical application of learned concepts.
The key strength of the program is a comprehensive coverage of Marketing – it is strong enough to expand your learning horizons while adding to the value of your resume.
My year within the MSc Marketing program has enriched my academic path significantly giving me the international career opportunities I’ve always dreamed of. The program offers high-quality and interactive teaching, where lecturers are fully dedicated to their students. The very complete program of the MSc Marketing degree gave me useful knowledge and helped me develop personal skills which are now enabling me to handle a management position in a fast-growing Internet company in Spain.
