Hope you are having a great week!
Studying at Hanken is a great opportunity for international students. In fact, you have the chance to attend different events and network with different well-known companies. Yesterday I had the pleasure to attend the PWC Case Study. The event started at 17:30. During the first hour, there was a presentation of the EDGE program that PWC offers to students soon to graduate or have been recently graduated. After that we had a short break and were divided into 4 groups of 5 people each, to solve a case study. We had only one hour to solve the case. They gave us some material to analyze in order to answer three questions. After the time was up, we had ten minutes presentation of the solutions. As an Economics student, I was not able to know the finance terminology that was present in one question. However, my great team managed to solve it. In the end, our solutions were the best solution among all the teams. After all the teams presented their solutions, we all went to a restaurant. The food was delicious. It was also a great way to get to know PWC people in an informal way and ask them questions.
This case was a great opportunity for me to learn how to be able to think and give solutions to subjects that I am not familiar. My advice is to be as much as possible active in different events that Hanken offers, even if they are not related to your major. In this way, you get to know students from other majors and meet companies.
I will leave in a few days for Christmas holidays in Italy.
To all of you, happy holidays and best wishes.
