Introduction

Welcome to the Europe Study Blog. Studying in Europe is an exciting prospect for any age. The chance to face other cultures and learn in different ways can be fun, interesting, frustrating, and nerve racking. Some of us have no choice as the family is being located to a European country for work and the children must go to school. Some of are seeking university programs such as a BBA or MBA offered in English and giving the student the opportunity to gain cultural knowledge and international experience along with their academic credentials.

I hope that this site will allow people to share what they know and what they learned (the hard way) so readers can hopefully skip over some of the pitfalls found by those before them and make the best decisions for their education and their lifetsyle.

Hi, I was recently taken for a ride by these deviants- Im currently working with a lawyer to try and recuperate 8000 Euro in tuition I sent (before they told me that there was a no refund policy- not written in any communications EVER sent to me or on their website- and before they told me that their Evening program for working students actually has classes taught during the day.) Do you have any idea what alias theyre working under now?? Im trying to find out who exactly Im taking to court.
Thanks
Lydia

You should be honest with yourself and with the readers and explain that you have never started attending this program although it was and is being offered in the evenings!
Next time before applying to any program, make sure that you are committed enough ....to start it!
No college around the world will refund you the money if you withdraw from the selected course of studies for personal reasons.

My name is Chiara, and I completed a BA (Hons) International Business with Specialisation in International Finance in 2002 at the European School of Economics. I always blush at talking about myself, but this time I’d happily make an exception to share with you some thoughts on how my experience at ESE has contributed to my personal career development.I started my BA at the Vicenza campus in 1998 with the intention to specialize in International Finance. Funnily, my very first internship was in the Marketing department of an apparel company, Stefanel, which proved to be a fantastic experience. Nevertheless, following someone else’s dream (i.e. my father’s), I steadily kept on financial stud-ies and had the opportunity to intern at Fininvest (on my second year), Borsa Italiana and Morgan Stanley DW(on my sandwich year), while continuing my elective courses in investment banking and corporate finance at the London campus. Over the fourth year, I moved back to Italy and graduated in July 2002 with a BA Hons in International Business (spec. in International Finance).As the ESE payoff claims, visibilia ex invisibilibus, all my efforts to become a financial specialist proved to be nothing without a truthful enthusiasm underneath. Indeed, two months after graduation, I was permanently employed at Geox as an Advertis-ing executive, revealing a genuine passion and some talent for Marketing. I worked there for more than three years and I still benefit from the teachings of my boss. She used to say: “There is no goal that is impossible to achieve.” “All challenges should be taken confidently.” And above all, she always repeated: “Remember well: you always get what you give.” I found her teachings very likely to those of the Dreamer, which helped me boosting my confidence and professionalism and took me to bright future developments. After more than three years of long hours in advertising and media planning, I resigned from Geox to undertake a significant career improvement. I accepted the offer for a position as a Marketing manager for a specialised CRM consultancy firm with a strong international client network. As Professor D’Anna used to point out during our Sociology lessons at ESE, nothing happens by chance since the Unex-pected is Passion made visible. In July 2007, I received a phone call from my former tutor at Stefanel. Time rolls on and in ten years he had become Ad-vertising and Corporate Image Director. His boss, the Marketing Director, was seeking an alter ego to manage strategic marketing issues including research activities, promotions, CRM, fidelity and retention projects, budget allocation, brand equity assessment. They proposed my name to the HR department and I accepted. Since October 2007, I have been working for Stefanel as a Marketing manager, coordinating a team of fantastic people, dealing with key strategic projects and enthusiastically spending my time in a job that I love.I reckon my story is nothing exceptional and to someone may even sound boring. If that is the case, please accept my apologies, but if you find it somehow interesting, I’d be glad to thank you and confirm you that being proactive, earnest, passionate and assertive always pays back.

I read your blog about the "European School of Economics - Fraud Warning" piece. My question is if this school is a fraud, how come it is VA approved (meaning those who are using GI benefits will be able to do so at this school). I am thinking of attending this school and I am concerned after reading your blog.

Like Lydia, I would like to know if you can also suggest a body. They lied to me as as a result I applied at great expense. Now they're refuding to give me the money back.

Many thanks
