What students think about ESCP Business School

    Michelle Vandamme, Belgium

    Testimonial from Michelle Vandamme, Belgium, student at ESCP Business School

    MSc in International Food&Beverage Management
    Class of 2017

    “After finishing my studies in bio-science engineering I chose to start this programme to broaden my knowledge of the food industry. I already knew how food products were made, but I was missing the link to the consumer and how to offer innovative & profitable products. What makes this master unique is that it provides a good balance between theoretical lessons, testimonials and company visits along with a hands-on company project. You get the opportunity to establish your network and set the direction to steer your future career. Over and above that, the diversity among students gives you the experience to work with different cultures and points of view, a real added value if you’re looking for an international career.”

    "IFBM was a life-changing experience that helped me pursue my dream of working in Marketing for a multinational F&B company. Through the program I developed both my hard and my soft skills and the right mindset to approach the job market. What enriched me most was the level of diversity in the class. It was amazing to have classmates with different backgrounds and from all over the world who shared my own passion for food. Over and above that the school’s vast network gave me the opportunity to interact with top Managers of leading companies and achieve a unique perspective on the F&B industry.”
