I am doing the "Contemporary Topics on Business Strategy" module which covers new knowledge about (i) innovation, (ii) marketing and (iii) strategic thinking.
For the Sustainability part, my Master's thesis was on that subject, so I hope to gain more knowledge on the subject, since I am studying this subject.

That is a incredible experience and a possibility to understand how companies work. The main think that I like was the different subjects that we covered.
10. How do you think this programme will help you in the future?
This programme will be very useful to me. I think it will help me to find another job opportunity because, now I am a more trained and competent individual, and maybe, I could apply for a job in another country.
