I am from Shanghai (China). I studied my bachelor degree at Shanghai Jiaotong University during my work off time from 2012 to 2014 and I chose to study in BSB since it has very good rankings (top 1 wine management programme and top 1 Management of cultural organisations programme).
During my 6-month school application, BSB offered me the warmest help when I met difficulties on visa applications and other issues, even if I wasn’t yet an official student of BSB. They already helped me to find multiple solutions for me to successfully apply my visa and wipe the difficult out of the way to France. 

Though I've just started my study in BSB, I already like a lot! The professors are very professional, the courses are very interesting. The professor intended to find interactive ways to teach. You never feel boring because you are always activated.
School life is so wonderful. Not just study all the time, almost every week the committee organized plenty of events in all aspect of interesting things. We had breakfast day, melting food night, and other parties. In BSB, you will never feel boring.

At BSB, I have learned to work as a team but more importantly to work with students from other cultures and countries. Today thanks to internet, you can get a lot of knowledge but think differently is another thing, this is the biggest treasure I learned from BSB.

My advice to future student: learn to enjoy the life in campus, don’t be shy, talk with different student from different countries, have fun and enjoy your time in BSB, Dijon!
