Now I manage market research studies in a European consulting firm
Miriam / German Market Research Manager

"As a Masters student at Rennes School of Business I experienced a truly multinational environment due to the great variety of nationalities present, both in terms of the students and the faculty. Although the courses were taught in English, which was a must for me, I had the opportunity to enjoy French culture and the language. Now I manage market research studies in a European consulting firm... it’s greatly satisfying to see the link between what I learned and what I now do for a living."
