Student testimony

Interview of Hatoon Abdullatif, DBA student

Can you introduce yourself and share with us your academic and professional background?

My name is Hatoon Abdullatif from Saudi Arabia, my undergraduate studies were in International Marketing and Luxury Management and a Masters’s Degree in Arts in Media and Communications from Geneva, Switzerland graduating CUM-LAUDE.

I currently work as a Corporate Communications and Sustainability Manager at Napco National, a board member at the United Nations Global Compact Saudi Arabia and a founder of a preloved designer vintage online store that sells worldwide.

Why did you choose the DBA Program of ISC Paris Business School ?

Out of all programs that I was searching for that would be ideal for my professional career, I found ISC to be ahead of all other business schools, other than its great academic reputation among professionals, the program itself seemed to have highly qualified professors and lecturers with unmatched teaching methodologies providing the ideal learning environment for students.  

Can you tell us about your experience as a student at ISC Paris Business School ?

 My experience started with an interview I had back in 2020 during covid-19 quarantine at my own home, I communicated with the dean of the program about my interests for the DBA and what my goals and vision were, the conversation was very fruitful and of value. Few weeks later I got accepted into the program which was exciting and started the online courses where I have met with highly qualified professors and students from all around the world who became family!

Can you tell us what you have learned during your first semester?

The first semester at ISC was all about growing our knowledge on several interesting topics such as entrepreneurship and innovation courses which I felt greatly helped expand my knowledge of the topic that my research paper was based on. Over 30 hours consisted of learning the basics of writing a research paper to learn in-depth research methods and practices that excelled our know-how on both researching and writing skills.

Why would you recommend the ISC Paris DBA  program to future students?

I wanted to study with the best.

ISC tops the national rankings, many top-class professors teach at ISC, and I know that a degree from ISC means something in the job interviews, and will open me doors to interesting places once I earn it.

ISC study program. I went through the curriculum on the website and checked every subject, and I found ISC curriculum superior to other competing universities in the country.

ISC students are from various backgrounds and business cultures, leading to a great opportunity to build a great professional network. Which proves very beneficial in the long run

We have build a community and a family and this is what makes studying at ISC that extra special.
