Experience of our students

I couldn’t have expected a better and heartfelt welcome to my new learnings as a master student in a whole new country like Germany and a zealous University like SRH Hochschule. This University has never disappointed me in networking which led me to build my family and long life friendships with different cultures and histories. At the same time, I was given the opportunity to work in the International Office and was also honored with a scholarship of being an extraordinary international student by DAAD. In addition to this, my choice of masters in International Business and Engineering took me to the next level of accepting different opinions, analyzing it based on different factors and reacting to it accordingly. It has been very easy for me to understand the fact that MIBE has definitely laid the right track to my destiny in career. My professors were always a big fan of personalities questing for more and more knowledge and education. And this is why I would always stand out recommending this course not only to seek the master’s degree but to also enhance one´s core competencies in life. The balance between the practical work and theories that I learned in this course has been the best seeds sown. Well, this has molded me to a person to reach and analyze the track to my milestone by experiencing different situations smartly and getting through them. I feel extremely proud to have made this choice of being a part of this University and being respected by them every time.
