From Professional to Student-Intern and Back Again!

Full Circle: How One Student’s Journey to Luxembourg for Love, Brought Him to SHU

Edward Henry took a leap of faith when he moved to Luxembourg for his [now] fiancée in 2014—leaving behind his well-established career in the U.S.A.—to start fresh in the European Capital of Luxembourg.

Starting from scratch in a multilingual and multicultural country like Luxembourg is not a cakewalk.

Edward’s only hope for making a professional transition, he says, was to go back to being a student and pursue an MBA at the Sacred Heart University Jack Welch College of Business in Luxembourg. The MBA with internship program at SHU Lux was the perfect fit. Known for being an ‘opportunity provider’ for its students, SHU opened its doors to Edward, and brought to light his opportunities in the Luxembourg job market.

And the rest is history…

After graduating in 2015, Edward Henry, MBA, is now an Internal Auditor at Grohe Group.

SHU caught up with Edward for an exclusive interview about his unique journey to Luxembourg:

How did you first hear about the MBA with internship program in SHU?
How did you find life as a student in Luxembourg?
What was your journey like, from being a student/intern to a full-time employee?
Any changes in your personal/professional life while you were pursuing the MBA?
How did the MBA help to build your career in Luxembourg?

Here’s what Edward had to say…

Calling all Non-EU Students; Good News in the Pipeline

 

All non-EU students in Luxembourg, there is a good news coming to you! Deputy Prime Minister, Etienne Schneider, Luxembourg, has announced that the government is working on a law which will help foreign students to remain in Luxembourg even after their studies.

We will pass a law to open immigration to let foreign students from outside the EU stay here after their studies and work. It will make it much easier for foreign investors to bring people here to do business.
