London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE)

“I had a great study experience. I enjoy studying, and learning and LSE was perfect for that. Great infrastructure and facilities that helped me throughout the whole year. Also, student services were very good and diligent and helping with any issues or problems that might have arisen.”

Bocconi University

“This university offers tailored Bachelor’s and Master’s programs in business management and studies; they really care about the welfare of each student, so they offer both physical and mental help, great campus facilities and tons of associations. I was part of Radio Bocconi for three years, the best experience I could ever have!”


“INSEAD is one of the premier business schools in the world. It has a global outreach and a pedigree that is matched only by Harvard. The diversity at INSEAD allows people to mature into great leaders of tomorrow, and you experience the true meaning of globalization at the university.”

Copenhagen Business School

“CBS is widely regarded as one of the best business schools in Northern Europe, but that just covers the educational aspects. In addition to this, I can personally recommend CBS as a place to study, since it has great modern facilities and also offers a great variety of social clubs with activities for all kinds of tastes.

Virtually everyone here speaks English and people are generally very friendly and relaxed - both students at campus and the locals in Copenhagen. CBS is localized two stops with the modernized underground metro from the heart of Copenhagen, which is a fantastic city with tons of transportation possibilities at reasonable prices (bike rental is recommended!).

To sum it up, it is truly a fantastic place to study - especially during the summer months, where everything comes to life!”

Pompeu Fabra University

“I spent the best year of my life while living in Barcelona! I met people from all over the world and had the opportunity to improve Spanish and learn Catalan. UPF, the university where I studied was great, I loved taking courses there because they were held differently from my home university, so I learned a new method, and this was very stimulating!”
