Thinking Fast and Slow is one of Amazon’s best sellers at the moment. Deservedly, so. This book is the summary of the research done by Nobel Prize winner Daniel Kahneman for the past 40 years in behavioral economics.
Behavioral what? Don’t switch off just yet. The book is easy to read and a lot of fun. Have you ever thought that you were being a bit lazy (intellectually speaking, that is?) This book will explain why and a whole lot more. It gives any business person a sharp insight into how irrational decisions can be made by some very intelligent people. Kahneman is a brilliant scholar and an absolute delight to read.

Hélène Konè, a graduate management student from Grenoble EM, talks about her experiences at Indian Institute of Management Bangalore.
If India was a common noun… I’d say A-D-V-E-N-T-U-R-E !!!
From August to December 2012. These 4 months in India were the most fantastic, incredible, unusual, challenging…, of my life.

Charlène Daubenfeld, a graduate management student from Grenoble EM, talks about her experiences at Queensland University of Technology.
Brisbane is the third largest city in Australia, and the capital of Queensland. There is a very active cultural life in Brisbane, with a lot of festivals, museums and exhibitions, concerts, and a lot of possibilities to go out with friends. You can also enjoy the artificial beach in the city center along the Brisbane River, where you can have a swim or do a barbecue, after you went in the famous shopping mall in Queen Street.

Written in 1980, Competitive Strategy, has formed the basis of modern strategic thinking for three decades. Amazon says that the book is now in its 60th edition and has been translated into 19 languages. It is still a great book to read though the recent bankruptcy of Michael Porter’s company, Monitor Group, has someone tarnised the image of the management guru.
Don’t tell your English professor that I told you this. Foreign accents are wonderful and whether you are travelling for study, business or pleasure you should do everything to keep yours. They can be good for business too.
Colombe de Montaigne de Poncins, a graduate management student from Grenoble EM, talks about her experiences at Hanken School of Economics.
Studying abroad means being open to totally different ways of thinking and living. It seems difficult to integrate with others but we have to keep in mind that, regardless of differences, all students have the same age, study the same courses, have the same interests but mainly share common desire to learn new things.

Jessica Grenat, a graduate management student from Grenoble EM, talks about her experiences at Singapore Management University.
With a thriving environment, Singapore is an amazing experience to live, willing to preserve its traditions in an advanced society! Symbolizing the Asian golden coast by excellence, it is quite Americanized, focusing on shopping, but also impressively developed in terms of growing companies and infrastructures. And, at the same time, Singapore is alive keeping a deep Asian culture celebrating each tradition and religious event in the streets.

Richard Branson is one of the world’s business icons. If you work or study in a business school it is almost impossible to resist a title such as “Secret they won’t teach you at business school.” The result the book is…passable. A “B-“ I would say, which is probably better than most of us would score if we tried to build an empire like Virgin.
