Can you tell us a bit about yourself.

Hello everyone, I am Andrea Bordignon, a sport enthusiast and MSc in Sports Industry Management student from Italy. Over the last 4 years I have lived in five different cities all over the world: Milan, London, Paris, Shanghai and Amsterdam, where I am moving to. Passionate about CrossFit and fascinated by marketing, after graduating with a bachelor degree in Marketing in Milan, I had to make a choice about my future Master.

Why did you choose this program?

Sport has always been part of my daily life. I decided to join this program in order to have the possibility to work in the sporting goods industry, following my dream of joining one of the two leaders of the market. Combining sport and marketing, I can definitely put all my effort in everything I do. Passion is key, especially in this industry.

What are you doing now? How did the emlyon business school career services help you during your studies?

Since the very beginning of the program, I have been helped by emlyon business school's career services to achieve my career goals, preparing week after week my resumes, cover letters and interview speeches. And today, after several interviews and thanks to the relevant help of my career coach, I have got the position of European Merchandising Intern at Adidas Europe in Amsterdam. It is just amazing; I am really excited to start this great experience very soon.

What advice would you give to the future students of this program?

As student-athlete, my humble advice is to keep in mind how much sport can help you in your everyday life. Team building, motivation and setting smart goals are keys that are going to help you achieve your dreams during and after the program.
