Takeaways from the MAGS, how the Master in Advanced Global Studies has helped to boost her career and some suggestions to best approach the Master.
I am currently working as Executive Assistant in McKinsey & Company. As an Executive Assistant, I support my three Partners agendas sustaining the relations between the Firm and the clients.
During my jouney within the master's I had the opportunity to attend several studies that helped me have a wider underestanding and wisdom on European Istitutions without realizing that this enourmous baggage of knowledge would have been so resourceful for my current job.
The year spent at ASERI has been a highly enriching experience from every point of view. The plus of the Master, for me, is given by the diversity I had to face every single day in the class, where everything was an opportunity to discuss and confront with other students and professors of different backgrounds, nationalities and cultures. Almost six months after the end of the Master I can say that all my expectations have been completely satisfied: I feel I have gained a better understanding of myself and of the world and the people around me.
I enrolled in MAGS hoping to gain valuable knowledge and skills that would prepare me for my professional career: the program taught me the fundamentals of international diplomatic exchange, which has been helpful at my current position in consulting international clients from different backgrounds. The variety of courses has provided me with the vital expertise necessary for any field related to international relations. As project consultant at APCO Worldwide, I work with clients from all over the world. Digital transformation, humanitarian aid or social networks are all part of my day-to-day work.
