Students Testimonials


BBA 2019, Spanish

I joined the AEBS BBA program of EMLYON x ECNU in September of 2019. If I say I was always a 100% sure about my decision I would be lying, before moving to China I was very nervous because it would be a huge change in my life.

However when the classes started and I got to meet all my classmates and teachers, I saw there was nothing to be worried about. From the very first moment I felt very welcome here, I felt that I was in the right place and that I had made the right decision.

Since I moved to Shanghai my Chinese has improved a lot, to a level I would have never imagined I would reach, thanks to the course provided by the university. We also have a variety of different courses in which we learn theory as well as how to apply this theory in real life scenarios.

It is also worth mentioning that in some courses we are mixed with Chinese students. I am very glad about this because now I also have local friends that show me places I have never heard about!

Finally I can only state, that it has been a very big opportunity for me and that I feel very lucky to be here.
