Bachelor Marketing & Communication, Promotion 2022
After my baccalaureate, I chose to go to a business school because I was passionate about marketing. I chose Paris School of Business because it was strongly recommended to me by those around me. Today, I am a 3rd year Bachelor student in Marketing & Communication and I am convinced that I made the best choice. I study with very good teachers and classes are highly interesting.
Several arguments made me go to Paris School of Business: the first is that the school delivers a diploma recognized by the State, which was a real criterion for me. The second is that the program is oriented towards professionalization, which is very important to students today.
