«The Master has given me a unique opportunity to focus on my entrepreneurial skills and it has not only opened up a new horizon of career options, but it has also strengthened my critical thinking and analytic skills, and it has given me a great foundation in business operations and entrepreneurial strategy. I am now ready to tackle challenges that I would never have imagined. 
Furthermore, I was given an outstanding opportunity to do an internship in an important Italian company that organizes B2B events and conferences in the ICT sector. I have proven to be hardworking and useful to the company, and my internship has ended up in a job offer. I am very happy with my job, and I have all the reasons to be optimistic about my future career perspectives.»
