Ecole Superieur de Gestion et Commerce International – PSB

Filed under: ESGCI,Studies — emimizolie @ 4:26 pm

Stop thwrowing tomatoes, I’m back ! At least until the next time!

181-2464

About 2 weeks ago, I started my new university in France after a semester spent in MCNY.

I’m still doing a BBA (Bachelor of Business Administration). My University is called PSB ( Paris School of Business) which is part of a bigger organization called ESGCI (Ecole Supérieur de Gestion et Commerce International – Superior School of Management and International Trade).

A great point of that University is the possibility to study my last semester or my full last year abroad. I already have an idea of where I’m gonna go. I won’t say more about it as the time for it is still laying far away ahead !

The subjects I am going to study for the next 4 months are Business Communication, Research Method & PowerPoint, Excel, Principles of Law, Principles of Marketing, Principles of Accounting, Statistics and Spanish.

They are really demanding but what we are studying is quite interested and so are the projects we have to carry out. Most of my teachers got a great professional background which make the classes more interesting. Funny coincidence, my marketing teacher had been in charge for many years of the marketing area of one of my mother’s business supplier : Point à la ligne. It is a well recognized brand in its business field. I will do my first presentation in her class next wednesday. A presentation on which,  my team mate and I, have been working for a few hours. We are proud of it.

As my university is run by the American model, all my classes are in english, my teacher are from everywhere in the world and so are my classmates. Canada, Republic of Moldavia, Nigeria, England, Lituania, Korea, China, are some of the countries represented just within my class. Many other nationalities are present at PSB. An international context in which I feel confortable and like to study in, as it’s been the life I’ve been living for the last 3 years.

Growing myself among all those nationalities represent for me a privilege. I have learnt so much about so many cultures and the people who constitute them that I can’t dry my thirst of knowledge and need to learn always much about the human being who populate the six continents.

This is a life experience which enriches you much more than any school. This is the best school of life. It brings you another look over the world and teach you how to open your eyes bigger. This is a real passion that I have developped through those 3 years.

Now that I found a great university that truly corresponds to me, I will fully enjoy a bit of stability and study hard with the aim of being the best !

The futur is coming up!

Filed under: Feelings,New York,Studies — emimizolie @ 7:20 pm

Today is probably one of the most beautiful day of my life ! Indeed, I’ve been accepted in MCNY for the next semester which starts on september 2nd !

I can’t believe that I’m going to be student in New York City. I will have the opportunity to live an American Halloween, Thanksgiving, Ice skating in Central Park under the snow……… and more !

However, to be honnest, I’m also terrified ! There is a huge difference between the French university system and the American one… I will probably bite the dust for few weeks before I get used to it !

Living my entourage for 6 months was more or less easy, I already did it. But now, this is for 3 years minimum… I’m not playing in the same court ! How is it going to be, when I’ll be homesick without the ones I love around me ? YOu can be as strong as anybody  but it’s never easy.

Fortunately, I’ve got some friends here who I can count on ! Don’t worry ”mon chou” I don’t replace you! How could I ?! They are from Germany and Portugal and will stay here probably as long as me !

My residence is also going to change. Goodbye Brooklyn Heights ( snif snif) Hello Manhattan Upper East Side ( East Side of Central Park).  It is on the green line, station 103 St.

MCNY is down on the red line, station Canal St.

Anyway, everything is perfect. My brain is going back to work and will use all its potential of productivity.. Mimi is happy…

I’m so excited when I think that i have applied to that college… For people who don’t know, it’s for a Bachelor of Business Administration ( 3 years) . My last dream, that is to say being fighter pilot, had blown up in the air almost a year ago. It took time for me to go over it and find for what else i was made for. Business… What else ! I felt so good when i had to hold responsibilities, to negotiate with suppliers for my mom, be creative and productive… I have no doubt about the way I choose. And the business class I have everyday just keeps to confirm it ! Moreover, everybody knows that i am only satisfied when i am overbooked and drowning myself into work ! I know i have the skills for it, I just have to developed those! Here comes MCNY… You can check on the website : http://www.metropolitan.edu

I know i will be happy here and use plentifully my assets. I “just” have to be accepted now !

Nulele glurps!

Wouinnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnowwwwwwwwwww !
