I wish I had known that we should be patient for anything that we want to do ( buy a train ticket, go to the post office ...) japanese people in general are really slow in everything that they do.

Sophia University is a really good one. Teachers are really good and there are about 200 foreigner students each year so it is easier to meet people from different countries.

Japan is a very good place to travel. I have already been twice to China and I will go in Thailande and Korea in the next few months. Then Japan is a really good experience because the japanese culture is very different from western countries, so it is very interesting to learn how does it work. Finally japan is beautiful, there are a lot to do if you want to travel...

Overall
I wish I had known...
Wish I'd known that accommodation was so randomly assigned. Also wish I'd taken a railpass with me so that I could travel a little cheaper (I was over 25 so the transport situation for me was very expensive). Considered buying a vehicle but not worth it for only 6 months. And wish I'd not worried so much about French consular formalities; turned out that the French dept of immigration were very lax and not terribly worried about my immigrant status (my visa expired while they fluffed around processing my Carte de Sejour!). In fact not one French authority ever examined the inside of my passport when entering/leaving France. Just a cursory glance at the cover to check my nationality! All that after going through hell with the embassy in my own country. Residency status enabled me to get cheaper prices here and there; in hindsight I don't know if it justified the expense though (since I didn't stay longer than 6 months as it turned out).

Go to ESSCA if you are a business, commerce or economics student interested in European politics, and in furthering your interest in the French language (maybe even to begin learning it from scratch).

The international office staff at ESSCA will be forever in your debt. They work quite hard so expect them to maybe take a little while to get back to you in some cases!

Enjoy yourself and don't worry too much about the studying, it's not that difficult to pass exams and you'll never get an opportunity like this again!

don't be shocked by the activities organised by the students themselves, they are not very mature.

By a reduction card for the train (carte 12-25), it helps a lot and makes travelling in general 50% cheaper. Don't worry about reactions you don't understand, learn to accept different cultural behaviour.

Very important thing is to find out all the advantages of beeing a student in that country, i mean discounts for traveling, transport and etc. Also to find out all the social programs which are gonna be organized in nearest future and if possible to take part in all organized social events, because they are always very interesting. Abroad you have to accept many strange things for you, you must integrate into the life of local people. It is a very good experience. Also meeting of so many international student is a big fun, and you are living very interesting life. After such experience you have many friend all over the world.

Financial Management
ESSCA
5.0/5
Overall
Courses at ESSCA school of management were very interesting and helped me upgrade and update my existent knowledge. They were all connected with finance and/or accounting, the same fields that i'm interested at studying. The professors were extremely good and every single one of them knew how to transfer their knowledge to us, to the students. I enjoyed the classes from Ms. Chan Joy, Mr. Mielcarz Pawel, Mr. Agafonow and many others. Campus at ESSCA is beautiful and I liked it very much. International and domestic students were very kind and helped me from the beginning when i was unfamiliar with the campus and the school.
