3X3: let’s hear what Nicolas Martelin, SHU Professor of Behavioral Finance has to say!

3 reasons why education is important?

– First, there is a common misunderstanding about education. Education is not knowledge. Finding out information is easy but being able to draw a line between what we know and what we don’t know is much more difficult. Learning how to draw this line is what education is all about.

– Then, once we are aware of the limits of our knowledge, we can start to discover and invent ways to get past them. Education is the driving force of creation.

Education is eventually like a trail of breadcrumbs. In and out of the classroom, “anything that comes to our hand is as good as a book” as Montaigne coined it. Each and every one of our experiences is part of the curriculum.

3 words to your Alumni and Students?

Curiosity: How can we go from being a child constantly asking questions about everything to an adult who is happy with no longer having to question the world around us? Be curious, keep asking questions, try to see how different topics can be related.

Grades: Do not focus on grades and other metrics because that will prevent you from enjoying the learning process.

Demand: Be demanding with yourself so that you can be proud of your work.

3 favorite places in Lux?

– The forest of Dudelange for a run;

– The Mosel Region and its rolling hills for a hike;

Vianden for all things history: Victor Hugo lived there for a few months.

A few words from our MBA Alumni Cristina Von Mayer

Doing an MBA is much more than just learning hard skills. My MBA journey with Sacred Heart University (SHU) has shown me that nimble learning only occurs when we go beyond ourselves, set aside our own preconceived ideas and think more about how we interact with the others.  

I have learned soft skills are crucial, how you communicate, ideate, analyse and think with other people, is key to adapt for such an era of unimaginable change. I stopped taking from granted my truth and really understood how important is to continuously challenge ourselves to learn about things we were not aware about us and the others.  

This can only be done if you expose yourself to intense learning experiences with people that have different backgrounds, cultures and ages. SHU has a structured program that forces us to work in diverse teams, different per module, so that you get highly trained to be able to generate ideas and innovate with others, really taking the most of teamwork. Developing HARD & SOFT skills will prepare you for anything

Summer Voices: Meet our MBA Student Ashish Bansal: “An internship into a full-time job halfway through my MBA”

Having worked with an Investment bank, starting a partnership firm and managing a contracts business back in India, I felt the need to go back to classroom learning to enhance my skills and build a global network. To gain exposure at an international level, I decided to do my MBA from another country (preferably one in Europe). That is when I came across the SHU MBA with Internship program in Luxembourg.

The MBA provided me a base to further build up on my undergraduate degree and 6 years of work experience. For me, the best part about the MBA was the fact that I was able to apply my classroom learnings directly onto my internship the next day. Thanks to continued guidance from my professors and the SHU staff, I was able to convert my internship into a full-time job halfway through my MBA.

Networking with individuals from various backgrounds, team building activities, working together on case studies, classroom discussions and offline project discussions further helped me gain new business insights and boosted my self-confidence. With the support of best in class professors and an amazingly learned and diverse cohort, I was able to gain immensely from this program.

Summer Voices: Meet our MBA Alumni, Annika Grosser: “My SHU Journey helped me grow into a better version of myself”

Doing my MBA at SHU really was a transitional experience for me. It taught me so much about myself, about people in general and of course the subjects treated in and outside of class. Being in a culturally diverse and rich classroom with people from a lot of different professional and cultural backgrounds allowed discussions and exchanges that exceeded my expectations by far. The viewpoints were at times so conflicting but the discussions were constructive and ideas formed and evolved quickly. It was inspiring listening to lecturers experiences and hearing about peers achievements, while being intellectually stimulating at the same time.

When I started my journey, I was working in the healthcare sector and felt like I had no career opportunities; by now I am working as a head of HR in a mid-size company, a job, I could not even aspire to before my SHU journey. There are so many options these days and I get to partake in great and meaningful projects. I am very thankful for having all these options now and can only recommend taking the next step on your career path and see where you end up.

Throughout the course, I felt that there was an excellent support system. At times, when I needed advice, the staff was always available for guidance and extremely helpful. Even now, over a year later, I can still strongly rely on the SHU community. There is a great Alumni Support Network, that spreads in so many different sectors. This is another a great takeaway that you should never underestimate.

Doing an MBA at SHU is a process that helped me grow into a better version of myself.

“As anything you do in life, you will get out of it what  you put into it” and in this case I received much more…

SHU has given me confirmation in my capabilities, strengthened my knowledge and has been the base layer for a wide range of inspirations, an alumni network and friends.

My peers, my professors, the MBA program have helped me to become a better version of myself and it is just the beginning!
