From Colombia to Piacenza - My year abroad
PIACENZA - I recently finished my "Laurea Magistrale in Gestione d'Azienda" at Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore. I lived in Piacenza for the entire year, and I have learnt a lot of valuable things, not to mention, another beautiful culture. The great food, the places, the people, the university and lessons have made this experience unique and unforgettable.
I could say Piacenza is my second home. I really enjoyed the time here and I am sure that all the knowledge I acquired, not only on an academic level but also personal and spiritual, are an important basis for my future.
In our Dual Master Degree Program in International Management we had the opportunity to do an internship in some of the most important Italian companies. I had the honor to do my internship at Ingegneria Biomedica Santa Lucia, one of the most known companies in management, biosafety and maintenance of biomedical equipment. Thanks to my internship I was able to improve and develop different types of skills in marketing, sales, teamwork and leadership.
Finally, and taking into consideration that I am about to complete my Master Degree, I would like to express my gratitude to both universities and every single person that contributed to my professional and human development.
