Name: Zaure Assanova
Course Studied: Studied: I2FA program (Ingénieurs Internationaux en Formation par Apprentissage)
Studied at: Ecole Supérieure d'Agriculture d'Angers, France
I returned in Kazakhstan after 2 very enriching years in France where Lactalis trained me in its corporate culture as part of the I2FA program (education and apprenticeship).
The I2FA program offered me the occasion to learn new ways of thinking and working. There were several challenges: to learn how to adapt to a new manner of studying; to adjust to the company’s expectations; to integrate a professional milieu; to speak the same language and to be open to the cultures of other students coming from all over the world. This was an enormously personally enriching experience!
I acquired an objective and global vision of many topics. Today, I am based in Kazakhstan in charge of the development of new products as R&D manager.
If I was to give some advice I would say that in order to succeed I2FA candidates need to be adaptable.
