For three and a half month he studied at the HSG as part of the CEMS Master's in International Management programme. Apart from his studies he also appreciates the cultural exchange he experienced during his stay, he says: "The exchange brought me closer to European culture. I was either studying or travelling." It was his interest for different cultures that brought him to 15 countries across Europe during the last three and a half month. Just before Christmas he is going to fly back to Calcutta where he will continue his studies at the Indian Institute of Management. "But I might come back to do an internship in Switzerland and also to eat Swiss fondue again."
