CEP C-Engagement project

Today’s guest entry is by Victor Rumay who is sharing his thoughts on his company engagement project. 

At the beginning of the year when this acronym was introduced to the class, I was skeptical about the benefits that I could  get from a short period of work in interesting companies. I am writing this post after 2 weeks of intense work and tons of fun and learning.

My name is Victor Rumay, Peruvian, passionate for digital and innovation and currently staying in Lausanne for the summer.

For me, CEP has a different meaning: Community Engagement Period. During these weeks, I have had the chance to be involved in activities with the Company that I chose, UBS, and with Classmates and Community of this beautiful Country.

During these days, I have not only built knowledge of a business and market that I find fascinating but also fostered my relationship with classmates and community by being part of local activities such as entrepreneurship forums and French classes at the shore of the amazing lake Léman.

Furthermore, after a productive week, I get together with classmates and go to the summer jazz festival and open-air movies which coincide perfectly with the indescribable sunsets of Switzerland.

Despite being in touch remotely with my classmates who are now pursuing their dreams around the world, I am looking forward to a get together in August and fruitful exchange of our experiences in person.

I am about to start my second half of CEP with a lot of enthusiasm.
