Graduates' Stories

Julien Denaes
Julien Denaes

Co-founder and CEO Logrr.com @ New York (USA)

> PROFESSION / Innovate, think differently, take a chance. As an entrepreneur, the only certainty is that nothing is certain. Every day we take risks. It is important that the people around you understand these risks: employees, investors, clients, partners and, of course, your family. 

> STRONG POINTS OF THE COURSE / Above all, students need to acquire the technical foundations and to understand how information technologies work. After, it is all about tools and methods. Students need to do what they are interested in, follow things through, keep an open mind and always want to go further. The networking during and after the studies and the possibilities to practice the skills acquired are real assets. Regardless of the industry, the market or the location, the network counts: the ecosystem in Sierre extends well beyond the borders of Switzerland.
