Olena Tybinka, 2013 graduate
MSc inspired me to start my own company together with another student
from my class, just a year after graduating. We first started Altalane
to offer consulting services but then evolved our business into Startup
Xpress, where we create and sell online courses for entrepreneurs up
until today. It's been a very enriching two and a half years so far!"
Nicolas Vaccari, 2014 graduate
"After graduating from the MSc, I decided to start my career in the consulting business. Since then, I have been working mostly on strategic and organisational subjects, including change management to make the connection between strategy and people. Working in this business, close to highly experienced people, helped me a lot to gain in maturity and personal organisation while extending my comprehension on how companies work and how to tackle their challenges."
Verena Maria Mai, 2014 graduate
"Founding the StartUp UNIspotter has been the biggest adventure in my life so far. After the MSc, I met my two co-founders and now, three years later we have set up an office in Estonia and Austria, convinced five international investors and manage a team of a dozen people with four different nationalities. I love the freedom (and the responsibility) that comes with it – and I am grateful to SKEMA as the foundation for my entrepreneurial journey was laid there."
