Rébecca Assouline-Béra, 2015

(Sciences Po / Columbia University Dual-Bachelor’s Degree: Economics)

A native of French Martinique, Rébecca Assouline-Béra graduated from high school in 2013 with a French ‘baccalauréat’ in Economics and Social Sciences, and an average score of 21 out of 20 as the head of the ‘academy’ of 3,000 students. Eager to tackle global issues, she chose Sciences Po’s interdisciplinary program, “in order to acquire the ability to analyze the decision-making process critically, taking a chance to stand back before moving ahead.”

Deeply influenced as a child by Al Gore’s documentary ‘An Inconvenient Truth,’ Rébecca’s worldview was also shaped by her involvement as a human rights volunteer in Cape Town. “All these experiences have taught me that public action can make a difference,” she says.

Studying at Sciences Po’s Euro-American campus in Reims, Rébecca became aware of America’s shared values and history with Europe and the continuing importance of close transatlantic relations. Pursuing a fully bilingual curriculum comparing the American and European systems was critical to satisfy her curiosity and prepare her for her studies at Columbia University in the United States. After graduating from Sciences Po as the head of class, she moved to New York this summer where she is studying economics and American Studies.

“Although I am only half-way through my Dual B.A. program experience,” says Rebecca, “I have already learned the value of global education and debate. Enhancing Euro-American unity and trans-cultural understanding will undoubtedly be a guiding principle throughout my professional career.”

Etienne_MariéEtienne Marié, 2015

(EPITA / Stevens Institute of Technology Dual-Master’s Degree: Master of Science in Information Systems)

Etienne Marié believes that living one year in America is an invaluable human experience for anyone coming from another culture. While studying at Stevens Institute of Technology, he expects to gain a higher point of view about the way the IT world works, while learning from his interactions with people from various backgrounds.

“The United States of America is known for entrepreneurship and a leading position in IT innovation,” says Etienne, “and getting an inside view, along with academic formation, on the way things are done there, will allow for exploration of a completely different mindset.”

Meeting, speaking with and understanding as many people as possible in the USA is major an objective of Etienne’s, along with exploration of a new and unknown environment.

“This kind of experience naturally makes one grow as a person and mature,” says Etienne, “but I think there is even more, everything in fact, to be gained from finishing my studies with a year in a prestigious American institution. It is a gateway to an exciting international career, and would in any case be a tremendous asset for anything I might set my mind on doing later.”

Diego Gestoso Menéndez, 2015

(Sciences Po / Fudan University Dual-Master’s Degree: Europe and Asia in Global Affairs)

Diego Gestoso Menéndez is currently in his sixth year of university studies, following his four years of undergraduate China Studies at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM) and his first year in the dual-degree master’s program at Sciences Po in Paris.

Study at Fudan University in Shanghai represents the culmination of Diego’s specialization pathway. In Shanghai, as in Paris and Madrid before, he is a students’ representative, and he is actively involved in sports and cultural activities and associations.

“I consider that studying abroad has been a source of learning and experiences that will mark my entire life,” says Diego. “However, it hasn’t been a one-way process; everywhere, I have tried to play the same role for other people around me. Starting with Spanish language, going on to Spanish culture, and up to my own opinions about any issue that was brought up.”

Diego describes the “Chinese language possibly [as] the love of my life.” His immediate aims are to build bridges across languages, cultures and experiences, inspired by his international studies opportunities.

Pierre Savary, 2015

(Sciences Po / Columbia University Dual-Master’s Degree: International Affairs)

During his undergraduate years at Sciences Po in Paris, Pierre Savary had already had the opportunity to study in the United States, spending a year abroad at the University of California-Berkeley. There he studied in the Departments of Religious Studies and Peace and Conflict Studies. The American spirit that he discovered in California became of particular significance to him, inciting him to come again to the United States.

While studying in the Bay Area, Pierre perceived that American ideals require citizens to take action, becoming involved in their communities. “Acknowledging the importance of American ideals is a good starting point,” he says, “but this is not enough: we also have to become actors of our time.” In France, Pierre was involved in interfaith work as President of the Sciences Po branch of a youth movement called Coexister.

Pierre considers his enthusiasm for the study of religion to be conducive to greater analytical skills and a refined apprehension of current global problems.

Inspired by the post-Cold War writings of political scientists like theologian Peter L. Berger, Pierre wants to reflect on the importance of renewed religious-based identities in the 21st century. Pierre also acknowledges the damaging consequences such identifications can sometimes effect when coupled with political claims.

Pierre believes that coupling the study of these phenomena with the study of International Security and Conflict Resolution may help to find new paths towards peace, by understanding better the way groups are formed and identities are shaped in a complex and globalized world.

Yaning Zhang, 2015

(Sciences Po / Fudan University Dual-Master’s Degree: Europe and Asia in Global Affairs)

Yaning Zhang is a second-year master’s student in the dual-degree program between Fudan University and Sciences Po.

Raised in a rural area in Central China, Yaning learned that only knowledge and excellence could bring a brighter future. Throughout the years, this idea has encouraged him to strive constantly for a better self.

Ranking 82nd out of almost one million candidates within his province, Yaning was admitted to Fudan University in 2010. During the following four years of undergraduate studies, Yaning has been awarded a National Scholarship and first-class scholarship twice from the university. Last year, when a Chinese academic book on national security councils was published, Yaning contributed one chapter. During his studies at Sciences Po, he was recommended by Professor Bruno Cautres to attend the IPSA & NUS Method School in Singapore, with a full scholarship.

All these achievements and awards reflect Yaning’s enthusiasm for research and academic work. “International understanding and cooperation are not abstract, empty words,” says Yaning. “They are ways of life from what I have experienced during my study abroad. It is not just about recognition of differences, but also about managing cooperation, based on the understanding of and respect for differences.”

Jean-Sébastien Marre, 2013
(France / Dual Degree: Sciences Po / Fudan University)

Jean-Sébastien Marre is currently a graduate student within the Sciences Po/Fudan University dual-degree program on Europe and Asia in Global Affairs.

A deep believer in multiculturalism and the dialogue between cultures and civilizations, Jean-Sébastien believes that the best way to learn about and share the values of peace, fraternity, and international unity is through an education-based understanding of other cultures.

He was introduced to political science, international relations and law during his undergraduate studies, and he had the opportunity to discover the United States during an exchange program at Georgetown University, where, he says, he “became a member of an incredibly lively and diverse multicultural community.”

Seeking a career in diplomacy at the end of his studies, Jean-Sébastien believes his year spent at Fudan University will enable him to strengthen his knowledge of China’s international and domestic policies. Above all, he looks forward to gaining a deeper understanding of Chinese – and to a larger extent, East Asian – culture and society, including the legacies of historical Chinese civilization as they impact upon modern societal trends.
