My colleagues and I, who coordinate the Admission and Evaluation face-to-face interviews, receive thousands of motivational letters each year, from all over Europe and the rest of the world, from people aged 23 to 55. Each letter is peculiar and uniquely motivated as a result of an unbelievable mix of personal story, motivation, aspirations and experiences.
Finding a balance between one’s dreams & concreteness, high aspirations and getting your hands dirty on the field as opposed to the difficulty faced in reality to achieve them. A stirring desire to turn their lives around by imparting the lives of others through their career that will subsequently give a meaning to their existence.
The appeal to travel, explore, is reconciled with the desire to manage projects, create financial and social business. Reading these letters is a fundamental, rewarding and amazing aspect of our job. Each story reveals the veracity and urgency of individuals determined to make a difference. Having a fine combination of the courage to dream and the search for competences to fulfil it. This for us is a fantastic and great responsibility to realize your dreams with you.
Here are testimonials of expectations from our incoming students, who took the interview, we are pleased to share it with you- is it a reflection of what you seek?
