My enrolment at the Strategic Marketing Summer School offered me a great opportunity to choose between a wide range of interesting modules in one of the most dynamic, cosmopolitan, and multi-cultural cities on the globe: London.

Since my early years, I have always been interested to know how big businesses and enterprises are run, how prices vary, and how international politics affect the economy. Having the opportunity to learn at one of the most prominent universities in the Middle East, I started studying Business and Finance at the American University of Beirut. The programme gave me the possibility to spend a summer abroad and transfer back my credits. Choosing Imperial to do so was not by chance. In fact, I had a wide variety of universities around the world to apply to, but Imperial was my first choice! Indeed, nobody would think twice about having the chance to study at one of the most prestigious universities in the world!

The Strategic Marketing Summer School at Imperial College Business School was an opportunity to discover new teaching and thinking methodologies, with new enriching perspectives of highly professional and experienced professors. I found the teaching was different from usual lectures where professors explain through the slides. In fact, the interaction between the students and the very enthusiastic instructors was the core material of the course.

Furthermore, group work was one of the most enriching parts of this experience. Teams were formed of people from different nationalities, fields of studies and cultural backgrounds. We all contributed positively to succeed in our project, every person having a strength in every share of it. Class discussions and team work were the best occasion to network and build connections with new friends coming from all over the world. Having some free time, we visited tourist attractions in London, Cambridge and Edinburgh.

With no doubt, my experience at Imperial College Summer School enhanced my CV very positively. I do consider this experience as a comparative advantage when coming to job and internship applications and a lifetime experience!
