Study abroad: Maïté’s life at Emory University

Home » All our news » Study abroad: Maïté’s life at Emory University

Maïté, a3rd year student, decided to do a Study abroad, that is to say a semester of exchange in complete immersion in one of our partner universities. Just back from Emory University near Atlanta, she shares her experience.

Looking for an international CV

If Maïté enrolled at INSEEC, it was above all for the international dimension offered by the program (courses in English, Anglo-Saxon professors, university exchanges abroad…). The exchange program Study Abroad was therefore a culmination for the student who is destined for an international career. For her, “study abroad opportunities are essential to building an international resume that will make a difference.”

The American campus, a city within a university

“Emory’s college campus is amazing! I couldn’t have asked for anything better! Students have access to a variety of resources: buses, restaurants, library, workrooms, cafes, parks, and even stores. I have noticed that this allows American students to maximize their leisure and work time.”

A supervised integration

In the same way that foreign students are welcomed at INSEEC by the French students of the program, Maïté was welcomed by a team of Emory students who accompanied her during her semester. But it is also important to take the first step and have the will to integrate: “I mostly mixed with Emory students during classes, group projects, and events throughout the semester. It’s the best way to create lasting memories and expand your international network!”
