Testimonial: Marie, Student, MBA in Hospitality Management

Before joining MBA ESG, Marie had a Bachelor in Hospitality. Following several professional experiences in various hotel services, she decided to join the MBA ESG to continue to deepen her knowledge in this area. She also talks about her passion: Underwater Hockey!

“I had several professional experiences in different hotel services. I was fortunate to work in catering, reception, housekeeping and I was a commercial intern for the company CMT (C’est mon tour – Accommodation Specialist from the artistic world). Then, I wanted to go further than my Bachelor, by joining the MBA ESG. I wanted to benefit from a work-study program (1 week of course, 3 weeks in business), to allow me to work, in England, in Amsterdam, where I live and to study in Paris.  I would like to work in the “Sales & Marketing” department of a hotel or a company related to the hotel and tourism industry.”

“I also have a passion: Underwater Hockey! It is a sport played by snorkelling in a pool. Two teams of 6 players are opposed during matches of 2 hours 15 minutes. We use fins, caps (like at Water Polo), masks, snorkels, silicone gloves (against friction on the pool floor), a stick, a puck that weighs about 1.3 kg, and goals at the bottom of the pool which measures 3 meters deep.”

“I have been playing hockey for 13 years. My French club is that of Pontoise and my Dutch club GOV. I am part of the Pontoise women’s team which participates in the French women’s championships in division 1. I was part of the French women’s under-19 team, which, in 2015, won a bronze medal. Subsequently, I joined the under-24 team. In 2019, we obtained the silver medal. In the Netherlands, I play in the women’s and men’s divisions 1 (because women are allowed in men’s teams).”

“I manage to reconcile this passion with my studies, in particular, thanks to the work-study program available. I have the possibility of training in my two clubs. The school is very attentive to my professional career but also sports and allows me to adapt my planning accordingly. With a little organization, I can manage everything!”
