Prospecting and selling, two qualities that have stuck with Mathias for several years.
” I started my studies in the Lyon region with a BTS MUC in a work-study program at Auchan. After six months, I quickly realized that BtoC was not for me.
I therefore reoriented myself in BTS NRC in order to work in BtoB. This degree was more interesting for me. I enjoyed prospecting and customer negotiation. After these two years of BTS, I followed up with a Bachelor’s degree in Sales Development, which I obtained as valedictorian, presents the student.
