Trainee DG GROW

"During my studies at the European College of Parma I had the opportunity to acquire a deep knowledge of the EU structure, policies and decision-making process following lectures and taking exams with top EU officials and experts. At the college my international business background has been integrated with a premium legal and political formation. The relaxed and friendly atmosphere in Parma allow the students to get in direct contact with some of the finest professionals in European affairs. The relationships built during the year at the College, both with professors and with fellow students, have been a crucial resource for my personal and professional growth. The multi-sectoral knowledge provided by the College has been extremely useful in the job market. Few months after completing the studies in Parma I started an internship in a lobbying and consultancy firm in Brussels where the knowledge acquired at the College allowed me to provide high quality inputs in several business areas including lobbying strategy development and EU projects. Today I am a trainee in Directorate for Internal Market and Industry at the European Commission."
