Léa Gaillard, a graduate management student from Grenoble EM, talks about her experiences at ITESM Campus Guadalajara.
I had an opportunity to study at ITESM Campus Guadalajara for one year. It is easily possible that the year in Mexico is going to be the best year of my life because of the things we can afford to do, unlike in Europe. In fact, Mexico is a perfect place combining cheap costs and outstanding landscape.
