Students' and Alumni voices
Bennet Achuo, Alumni
"The internationality of the programme is a plus. Seeing, meeting, and getting to know other international students has a comforting feeling. Added to that, the programme keeps improving year by year, adding the latest IT trends to its curriculum. One is never out of date with the newest IT tools. I chose BBA because it combines business knowledge with IT know-how. Learning business administration alone might just not be enough to be competitive and to have good chances in the job market. Not only have I learned theory, but have also gotten the opportunity to have a hands-on experience of the corporate world, which the programme rewards with academic credits."More Students' and Alumnis' voices
Anara Abdykhasimova, Student
"I have chosen the study program BBA for combining two majors that, in my opinion, are crucial for future career. Moreover, the study courses are held in English language, which encourages students to study in English while being in Germany. So both languages are constantly being used, improved and advanced."More Students' and Alumnis' voices
