Meet one of our students from Pakistan

"During one of our assignments, a team of us worked as a business consultant for an incubator and travelled to Toulouse, France at Toulouse Business School. I learned a lot from these experiences."

Faisal is currently studying MSc Innovation Management and Entrepreneurship. Read his student story.
