Live about the Master in Management Program

My decision to pursue my Master degrees in ESC Clermont was highly influenced by my strongly curious nature - what was it like to live in a "medieval", yet progressive, city and to go to a school that stood the test of time? An institution that has continuously taught students for over a century must be doing something right after all.
