“After graduating from the MSc, I was able to join a major French ship brokerage firm as a trainee. This was an ideal gateway for me and I have now been working for this company for over two years. The KEDGE BS experience offered by this Master programme undoubtedly helped me to enter the labour market and be operational much faster.”
Anne-Sophie has always gone all-out to achieve her ambitions and has successfully taken up international opportunities to reach the position she holds today.

Léo joined the course to pursue his interest in cultures of all kinds and the manner in which these complement each other. He loves different places and multidisciplinary events, with the theme of his dissertation being music festivals in Vietnam. It was therefore quite natural that he should join Ulule to help make musical projects a reality, including providing support for artists and organising crowd funding strategies, etc. The skills required include open-mindedness, natural curiosity, a sense of initiative and perseverance.
"After graduating as an agricultural engineer in 2017, I decided to specialize in sustainable finance, aware of the excesses of the financial world and convinced of the crucial role it could play in addressing social and environmental issues. The MSc Corporate & Sustainable Finance was the best specialisation in this field. In addition to acquiring a solid foundation in finance, the interventions of numerous professionals in sustainable finance gave me a concrete and pragmatic vision of the stakes and problems of the sector, and greatly facilitated my professional integration".
"When I came to France, I was not really sure what to expect and how post-grad will be like abroad. But it was the right decision to choose KEDGE Business School, especially Toulon campus as it was located in a nice city in the south of France with lots of beaches nearby, perfect weather (not too cold during winter), and rich in culture and naval history. During free time, it is always a good idea to explore the city. Toulon is packed with lots of activities and events happening in every corner that will suit everyone’s taste, and what makes it better is that most of these are free!
At Kedge BS, the learning experience is different. It's a combination of theoretical and hands-on learning based on actual working experiences and presented in different teaching styles using high-tech facilities. They even have a program that focuses on the wellness of the students’ well-being. Everything went smoothly, and adapting to a new environment was not that difficult thanks to the people who helped me go through it. I am very fortunate for having Kedge BS professors and staff, including the French students who were always approachable and helpful through every step of the way. They would try to speak English whenever they can which made communication a lot easier. Overall, this study-abroad experience has been great and I am looking forward to learning the French language and not having to use translation apps in the future."
“As an engineering undergraduate from India, I always wanted to pursue a graduate degree in management in a way that would support my engineering background. When I got to Toulon, I was not very fluent in French. But the International Relations team here helped me out right from the start in everything from welcome services to making sure my stay here in Toulon was comfortable. The professors here are simply the best I’ve ever had. We had frequent get-togethers with fellow French students in and around the campus – which was the best part of our intercultural integration for students from a variety of countries and cultures. Apart from the curriculum and the ultra-perfect facilities, the city itself is beautiful and unique. I am proud to be a student at KEDGE Business School Toulon.”

Although his first love was music, Sebastien used the links within the creative industries and a declining culture industry to move into the video games sector: the leading cultural product sold in France. He developed his marketing expertise in this environment with the Assassin's Creed brand, and now has the new challenge of managing the Just Dance brand within Ubisoft Europe.
Eric set up his company during the second part of his placement, in an environment that is unique to him: urban culture. Les Initiés is a creative agency specialized in the production of photo and video content, based in Paris. If he got to where he is today, he says it's thanks to the network! His first clients are former business school classmates. In three years, Eric Meng managed to develop his business and worked with renowned groups such as Nike and Citadium.
“The Specialized course "Management of Arts and Creative Industries" was a massive plus: (…) on a professional level, recruiters were impressed; I always made sure I showed it off.” He owes his career to his conscientious work ethic, coupled with his good looks. Far removed from both the typical model and the average business school student at the start of his career, Morys steered away from the beaten track to claim his own unique style. On a university exchange to Berlin in 2015, Morys drew inspiration from those he met and quickly built himself a network in the microcosm of fashion.
