I gained professional knowledge and confidence


Luna Nguyen
International Business Student

I am the last-year student at Karelia University of Applied Sciences with International Business as my major. I made an amazing Erasmus exchange to Italy in 2018. In January, I went to Turin for my Erasmus study exchange and enjoyed memorable moments. I had chance to meet and make friends with fantastic classmates from all over the world. After that, I was in love with Italy and decided to extend my stay for internship. I was lucky, after building connections and participating in different business events, to meet Andrea Pauri who is the president of TEDxBologna. He got interested in my passion for Social Media Marketing and Event Management and decided to choose me as his personal assistant to support his projects. I gained new skills and experiences. The unique achievement in this internship was the connection with famous professionals in different fields who are speakers or sponsors for TEDxBologna.


Karelia UAS has helped me to gain professional knowledge and especially confidence in business-related activities. I think that is the reason why my supervisor noticed and chose me as his assistant. Furthermore, I was given challenging but interesting tasks. Now my internship has already ended, but the memorable experiences both in working and social environment are always in my mind. Thanks to Karelia UAS and its Erasmus exchange programme, my international perspective has been much broadened. I started to think and consider the activities around me with more objective point of view, and I feel myself much more mature and independent now. I think I’m ready for my future career path after graduation. Thank you for giving me such amazing moments in my university life.
