Comments:

  • We took course related to business and culture. For the general business courses, the most interesting topic is the leadership training. I seldom have a chance to have such kind of classes that has strong interaction. I really acquired much useful and practical knowledge. As for the luxury business courses, it allows me to have deeper understanding of luxury marketing and management, which I found very interesting.
  • We also had some educational visits. The most impressive one for me was the visit to the commission of the European Union. During the stay in Europe, I notice how convenient the EU could bring to the residents of Europe countries. Through the presentation given by the EU employees, we understood a lot related to business and economics development in EU. Another impressive educational visit is Thomas Music. I was really surprised by the culture of the company and the relationship between the company and employees.
  • The courses are too short and the schedule is tight. The activities and the exam are put too closed.

Other comments:

  • The application of visa with a mainland passport is complicated. It is advised to start the application earlier.
  • The programme  took us to different campus of ICN. We went tocampuses in Nancy, Metz and Nuremberg respectively. We gained insights and learned a lot about business in Europe. We spent most of the time in the campus in Nancy. When I just stepped into the main building of ICN, I was attracted by its color and the design. I really spent a very pleasure time in Nancy, which is a peaceful and beautiful town with nice people.
  • It’s strongly suggested to stay in groups all the time!
