Émilie and Wanda, respectively majors of promotion 2020-2021 of their class of Head of Operational Unit and Head of Business Development had the chance to leave at the end of September in Learning Expedition in Athens.
A beautiful experience they remember and share with us 👇
Can you describe your trip in a few words?
It was a very enriching experience, an opportunity for incredible cultural discoveries that I will remember for a long time! 🤩 -she said as she looked up-
We were 3 Eucleians among about twenty other Collège de Paris students and two supervisors, the ideal opportunity to exchange and enjoy the moment with other people in the network.
I agree with Clara, it was a great and rewarding experience. I feel very lucky to have had the opportunity to fully enjoy this trip! ☺️
What did this Learning Expedition bring you?
It is a real added value to my professional year but also school, as enriching professionally as personally, a very strong discovery humanly ✨
It is an incredible experience that played a key role in my personal development, it allowed me to work my adaptability towards people and gave me the opportunity to socialize 💯
I was also able to work a lot on my concentration, the interventions being all in English.
your best memory?
The one that comes to mind right away is the typical Greek evening we had the chance to attend 🔵 ⚪
On the program, traditional dancers, musicians and singers performed on stage and we were all gathered around several typical dishes. It is a memory full of flavor and rich culturally! I really loved it!
The visit to the Parthenon marked me a lot, it is an exceptional site! Both impressive by its size and history. The day ended in style with a restaurant overlooking a beautiful sunset. I have rarely seen such a beautiful one, the images will remain in my memory for a long time 🥰
Vous avez une histoire à nous raconter ?
On the second day, we had the opportunity to all enjoy several shots of local anise alcohol, ouzo, it was a great time shared with the whole team before a class. Can you see it coming? 😂 -the smile in the corner of your mouth-
It is a strong enough alcohol, I can tell you that to follow the course then it was complicated! (Laughs) No it was an excellent convivial moment that allowed us to toast all together to this trip! 🥂
I could not have found better as anecdote! Obviously I remember that alcohol is to be consumed in moderation, it is a pleasure above all! 😉
As a major of promotion, what can you advise to the alternates and future alternates to motivate them and perhaps get the chance that you had to make this trip?
I can only advise them to do the best they can and not hesitate to solicit stakeholders, to draw on their experiences and advice. Daring to ask, to be interested, to be informed, not to be satisfied with the minimum and to go further and to appropriate things, it is perhaps that which made the difference 🤜 🤛
I had throughout my year this positive stress that pushed me to work, I absolutely wanted to graduate, give everything, give me the means and especially be proud of me! 💪
What did you think of the interventions?
Les interventions ont été toutes aussi intéressantes les unes que les autres. The topics discussed are related to those in progress and related to the path followed at Eucléa.
They were provided by professionals in the sector, the case studies and shared «tips» are as close as possible to the field and reality.
Absolutely, the courses took the form of a clear and playful conference which made the intervention dynamic. We were all the more attentive as the course was in English, the speakers took great care to make themselves understood 😌
Do you have a final word to share with our users?
I sincerely thank Collège de Paris and all the supervisors for giving us the opportunity to discover Greek culture in this way. Thanks to Eucléa Business School for its quality courses and support that allowed me to get there today! 😊
Many thanks to Collège de Paris for rewarding deserving students. I am all the more motivated to continue in this way! 👌
Thank you Emilie and Wanda for sharing your experience. The whole Eucléa Business School team wishes you an equally beautiful year for your Ms1 by our side!
