At ISM each MBA seminar provides many different topics, taught by very competitive professors from all around the world. Each seminar varies from one to another, complementing each one with relevant and applicable information. All students have their favorite seminar, which normally expresses their preferences. For example, in my case, I really liked the finance seminars since my minor was Finance and Accounting, so I already had knowledge in that area. However, I also realized I had other preferences, like when I took the Advertising and Communications seminar I understood how much I liked marketing and that I was actually good at it. This is why I started to apply to jobs that had marketing areas where I could learn and improve my skills.

The more seminars you take, the easier it is to write your final assignments and the more you recognize how every seminar has helped you write the next one.

In my case I just finished my seminars in Paris. My last one was International Business, and the two previous ones were E-commerce and Global Economics. They all complemented each other. The best part for me was that after I finished writing the final assignments I realized how interested I am in these topics. After doing some research on emerging countries and how globalization has interconnected economies, I finally came up with the topic for my thesis, which was just approved by Dr. Mark Esposito.

At the end, this is why we study an MBA: to increase our knowledge and understand what we prefer, what we are good at, and which areas we need to improve. We just need to get the most out of every course by learning from the professors and from our classmates, getting a multinational experience and an international approach.
