"I feel very fortunate to have my family with me" MBA student Youssef B'lal

“I feel very fortunate to have my family with me”

Coming from the US with a career spanning 20 years, Youssef is one of the more experienced full-time MBA students at ESMT. He has been sent to do an MBA by his employer Allianz. Most important for Youssef is the support of his family. His wife and his three-year-old son followed him to Berlin and help him to relax after lectures. Youssef uses his spare time outside playing with his son in the park or at the zoo, his favorite places in Berlin. The year has challenged him with demanding lectures, but it has also offered interesting insights and a network of great new people. His advice for future students? Enjoy, experiment, and manage your time properly.
