Study Abroad – Come to New York!

Based on a Memorandum of Understanding our partner University New York Institute of Technology now offers students from FH SWF the opportunity to study abroad at the heart of Manhattan! To become a student of the NYIT School of Management is a truly international experience in one of the most exciting cities worldwide.

Becoming part of the international student body and benefiting from our well-established network allows our students to experience NY in a way which exceeds the purely touristic perspective. Courses on recent topics provide an attractive further education, credit transfer is possible.

Ekaterina Yurkova

"I decided to take part in the Digital marketing course at NYIT to gain an international exposure and expand my knowledge gained during the masters course in Germany. The possibility to explore a new country and culture and meet new international friends makes the course even more attractive. An extensive activity package which helps to get to know the city better along with business trips to obtain practical knowledge in New York are going to keep us very busy and guarantee unforgettable experience. I am looking forward to this trip and very excited to be a NYIT student."

Oleksandr Prokhorov

"When I saw the package of the NYIT summer 2019 exchange program, I understood that it was a no-brainer. Undoubtedly a great opportunity to spend almost a month in New York exploring one of the greatest cities in the world while expanding my own knowledge in relevant subjects. It is also a very nice chance to experience an American approach to lecturing, develop some new connections and experience a multicultural environment. The homework load and free time were perfectly balanced, which allowed me to earn some academic credits and also have some free time for my own agenda as well as take part in an entertainment program prepared by the NYIT. A month is not such a short period, however, the density of events, their variety, and speed of life are so owerwhelming in New York that this month has passed very quickly. I would definitely be happy to join the program again next year!"
