IE was once again in Bucharest, the ´little Paris´of the East, to attend the QS WMBA fair which took place in the Intercontinental Hotel In Plata Universitatii, in the heart of the city. Throughout this very busy event, I had the backup of Romanian alumni and entrepreneur Roxana Marcu, who explained her personal IE experience on the International MBA programme to both enthusiastic and well-prepared candidates, as well as to the local press.
Following the fair, Roxana kindly showed me around the old part of Bucharest, Lipscani, where I tasted a more contemporary cuisine, reflecting Romania´s more recent chic bistro culture. The next day I set off to Brasov in Transylvannia to explore the Romanian countryside and to vist the infamous Bran castle of Vlad Tepes, more commonly-known as Dracula… on Halloween!
