I decided to come to Burgundy School of Business  because I thought I could combine my Master studies in English and at the same time learn French. It has been very exciting for me to live in such a beautiful city like Dijon, is a city that represents the real France, full of typical French bakeries, unbelievable views, museums, etc. that really makes it special for a student. It is as well so easy to go from one place to another because of its size that allows students go everywhere. The geographical location let students travel during the weekends, we can go to so many places within two or three hours, like skiing, Paris, the beach, other countries, etc.
My studies have been incredible. We received different teachers from all over the world, sometimes we even received some seminars from people who travel so far and who come to teach and transmit their working experiences. Everything in our studies is practical, we like learning by the professors experience, rather by a book.
It was really enriching to study with many nationalities, I got not only to learn about my Master but as well a lot from other countries. In my class we were 12 nationalities, and it was really incredible to know that every student comes from a totally different background, and we then beca me a very special mix and get to share our experiences and a little bit of our lives in our home countries.
In short words, living and studying at  BSB  was a very extraordinary experience, meeting people, creating networks, travelling, trying different foods, ga ve the special touch to studies.

I came here 8 months ago as a student of MSc International Business Development program at BSB. Before coming here I did lot of research for my masters and I saw MSc IBD program in one year with one of the best school of Europe. This course was exactly what I was looking for. I had no idea that I would find it so interesting. In one class room there are lot of different countries and cultures, it is really the best international program. There are highly qualified experienced professors; they will give you the best education. Lectures exercises were very good and easy to understand and I really like group works with international students. The course material is comprehensive and interesting. I have enjoyed this course and content. I feel much more confident now. I will also say something about Dijon: it is a very beautiful, small and very peaceful city. You can study here with enjoyment.
Overall, a great program with great professors. Thank you for offering this course. I have learned a lot and enjoyed a lot!
