Keyce Business School

Graduated from a business school group, I quickly thought it would be difficult for me to leave school. After working as a real estate agent for 5 years, had two children, I sold my company, and my destiny caught up with me. A school offered me the opportunity to give courses, which fascinated me, and then I climbed the ladder, until I bought back the school where I worked. A poker move, a risk, but what a joy to finally be able to manage a school, to lead it with the values that I think are essential: Excellence, rigour, supervision, development. I come from pedagogy, and I seem to be an expert in this field, it is my speciality. So, since I was born, I have been living in the classroom, it is more than a job, more than a responsibility, more than a passion
