Student Interview
Digdem Ay
International Bachelor Program student

I have been working in the textile sector for many years. I worked in every department, from production departments to design departments. But I needed more than that to build my own brand and business.
I was very excited when I noticed the innovation management program. I decided to start this program to challenge myself and improve my career skills. I realized that ESMOD Paris also offers this course, but I also wanted to live in Japan and learn Japanese. So, I decided to study CNAM in Tokyo.
