It was the best choice to study International Management in the middle of the Bavarian Forest (FOR REAL)
Miriam Eder rated 5 out of 5 stars

Really international atmosphere, you get to meet people from all over the world (great networking!) as well as you have many classes taught by international lecturers. On top, one learns all the necessary theory for international business (bachelor level) and gets a lot of practical input by case studies and real projects. Highly recommended, best choice!
