Football at esmt berlin
It was the last minute, a throw-in ball came in between two defenders. It was only the keeper that stood between the paths to victory. This was not a FIFA World Cup final, nor was it Ronaldo up against Buffon. This was just a bunch of exuberant, energetic masterâ€™s in management students from ESMT Berlin playing football.Â
The energy was high and the passion intense as the ESMT MIM students tackled their way across the football field. I ran against the wind on the pitch, racing past defenders and succeeding to score. I was a thousand miles from my hometown, yet I felt like I was at home.
We quickly came together as a team, admiring and appreciating each otherâ€™s performances. It was as though we had known each other and played together for years. We gave each other generous nicknames, such as the â€œPakistani Benzema,â€ the â€œLebanese Bazooka,â€ and â€œMilanâ€™s Pirlo.â€
What makes ESMT Berlin speciaL?
It was interesting to see the talent that the different countries had to offer. I definitely amazed people who had thought that Pakistan did not know anything about football.Â Coming from a non-footballing country, I felt special playing withÂ Germans, Italians, and Spaniards. This dream is made into reality at ESMT Berlin, where we have 39 different nationalities studying for the MIM 2017-2019 Program.
On the football pitch, I realized that the students from ESMT Berlinâ€™s MIM Program are special. Not only are they focused on academia, they are equally involvedÂ in extracurricularÂ activities. ESMT Berlin is a perfect mix of diversity in all aspects, yet somehow, together under one roof, we are all trying to reach a common goal and helping one another along the way. I think that is what makes ESMT Berlin special.
