                  Internal communications and supplier relations, L'Oréal

                  Following a Bachelor’s degree in Applied Foreign Languages, I chose a different path offering greater professional preparation by opting for the Paris Business School Master in International Management. Over the course of the program, I carried out an internship at Le Figaro as a web marketing and partnerships project manager. Thanks to the variety of international experiences accumulated, internship opportunities, association life, and faculty from a wide range of working

                  backgrounds, this Master enables students to graduate with skills and abilities that will help them enter the employment market successfully.

                  I currently work at L’Oréal in communications and supplier relations in work-study mode.
