    I attended ECOECO course from 2011 to 2013. I chose it because the program covered a wide range of areas, such as Economics, Business, Finance and Law. It offered me muldisciplinary skills, a good knowledge of Mathemacs and Statistics, teamwork skills and operational capabilies in measurement, survey and data management. These skills are an asset in my current job as Operaonal Buyer in Nestlè procurement department. My daily work requires team cooperation, computer abilities and competence in treatment of data in order to supervise purchase process, create purchase orders and solve problems both inside the company and outside it, with suppliers.
