Student’s Experience

Faculty of Environment and Information Studies (4th year)
From: South Korea

Faculty of Environment and Information Studies student, Hanna Kim, took advantage of Keio Universities Exchange Program and spent a year in France at HEC Paris Business School. Here she talks about her experience.

Going on an exchange program was one of my best decisions since I enrolled university. It was the opportunity to discover a new studying environment in another part of the world, with new friends and new professors. Significant preparation for applications had been needed, but you could end up learning so much in return.
As for me, I had the chance to study one year at HEC Paris Business School, in France. Most importantly, I could develop strong academic knowledge in a new field of study by being part of the Master in Management program, with classes like Supply Chain Management, Financial Accounting or International Marketing.
Moreover, studying at HEC Paris gave me the opportunity to meet people from various backgrounds, from exchange students to MBA and Alumni, through numerous conferences, stimulating professional networking events and student associations.
Last but not least, going around the beautiful city of Paris and traveling in Europe also made my stay very valuable. I believe studying abroad will open up your mind with no doubt!
