TESTIMONIALS

"The strong knowledge acquired during my studies at IMI helped me to understand how to organise events from A to Z."

Antoine Golinvaux

from Belgium , graduated in 2016

After doing a Master in Finance and Management in Belgium, I attended IMI for a Master of Science in International Events and Conference Management in 2016. I decided to go for this programme as I wanted to explore the world of events and congresses. While finishing my dissertation, I had the opportunity to complete an internship at MCI Suisse in Geneva, thanks to the support of the IMI Career Department. The strong knowledge and academic background acquired during my studies at IMI helped me to understand how to organise events from A to Z. From 2017, I got the opportunity to evolve to the post of Project Specialist in the PCO department. In this department, we organise international congresses all around the world.
