Being a scuba diver, I have always been passionate about protecting the natural environment. However, I am convinced that individual efforts in conserving energy and resources are not significant enough to tackle the problem.
When I was reviewing my Jupas choices, I came across an alumni testimonial of EVMT and I knew then that this was the major I had been looking for. Unlike other environmental science studies, EVMT positioned itself towards future development, combining Environment, Society, Governance (ESG) elements while specifically focusing on sustainable business and strategy. As I firmly believe that integrating sustainability into business is the critical solution to climate change, I appreciated how the course materials equipped me with the skills and knowledge necessary to connect these two fields. In one of my favorite courses, Green Business Strategy, we investigated different case studies and looked into the challenges encountered by corporates transitioning into a more sustainable business.
Interpersonal and communication skills are highly valued in this major, so we also had opportunities to collaborate and present our deliverables with other classmates. I can proudly say that, after four years of study, I have truly become a more confident speaker and team player.
With its unique insights and instruction, EVMT had given me a competitive edge in the job market and helped me stand out among other candidates. Entering L’Oréal and becoming a Management Trainee was a dream come true. I am now given the opportunity to promote sustainability within the Group by working on packaging and recycling projects.
