After almost 3 months of traveling over land, the two Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (BSc Hons) graduates from ESE Florence, Cesare Poccianti and Michele Sabatini from the From Florence to Singapore Overland team, have made it to their final destination: Singapore.
Their perseverance and courage have led them to living their dream: retracing the Oxford & Cambridge Far Eastern Expedition, the first overland journey that was accomplished by 6 young English students in 1955, but this time with starting point ESE Florence.
In 1997, the European School of Economics was honoured to host Lectures of Professor John Forbes Nash Jr. (Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences in 1994). In the same year, Nash introduced a series of lectures titled “Ideal Money and Asymptotically Ideal Money” in the most prestigious schools in the world. Having hosted his lectures, ESE contributed to give resonance to his theories which undoubtedly revolutionized the global economy.
His brilliant yet lunatic life was not only told in the famous biography “A Beautiful Mind” (by Sylvia Nasar) but it has also become an Oscar winning film by Ron Howard. His struggles did not hinder him to achieve probably the most fascinating “Game Theory” implications.
My name is Monique Duarte and I am an alumni graduate of ESE. I spent 3 ½ years at the ESE London campus along with a semester at ESE Milan. My experience living in London, and studying at European School of Economics, was a wonderful experience filled with, creating new friendships from all over the world, learning culture, traveling Europe in all that it has to offer, and learning that the sky is not the limit to achieving all your dreams. Being able to travel to Italy, France, Germany, Spain, and many other places with a breeze, allowed me to experience life through a whole new lens. I am so grateful for my academic learning opportunity that ESE has given me, through it’s professors, that aim to push your thinking, and expand your knowledge in a whole new way.
