Sarara, a third-year student in the Department of English at the Faculty of International Studies, flew to France in December 2021. She is currently participating in an exchange program at the Burgundy School of Business in France. We interviewed her about her experience so far.
I am currently living in a city called "Dijon" in central France, where I am blessed with a kind-hearted and hospitable host family and roommates.
At the university, I am mainly studying the basics of management and business, and I spend a lot of time preparing and reviewing for my classes because they are very challenging. Classes are basically conducted in an active learning format, and there is a lot of interaction with classmates through group work and group presentations.
Since I was familiar with active learning through case methodology at NUCBe, I was able to naturally participate in the classes from the beginning. There are many local French students in my classes, and I am able to learn more about French culture by interacting with them not only in class but also after class. I would like to continue to work hard and connect this to my own personal growth.
One of the benefits of studying at NUCB is the abundance of global partners we have built up over the past 20 years. With over 100 partner schools across more than 45 countries, students are strongly encouraged to make the best out of the school's global network as part of self-development and international exposure.
