... that you will get to know people from all over the world sharing one classroom with you: 84% of our graduates 2013 were coming from abroad and 16% from Germany. Despite the diversity of our study groups, there is one thing that unites them all and this is the motivation to give their career a different direction.

So all in all 81% of our graduates successfully achieved a career change.

What most of our international candidates intrigues about studying for an MBA in Germany and in Berlin is the opportunity to work for a company in Germany after graduation. Of our international graduates 2013 59% achieved this goal.
And here are some examples of career change/career transitions:

One of our graduates from Spain who was working as a research analyst is now working as a Regional Manager for a start-up company in Berlin. A project engineer from Greece is now working as a consultant for a company in the renewable energy area in Berlin. A journalist and researcher from the US joined a start-up company in Berlin as Communications & Marketing Manager. An IT Analyst from Russia became Head of Office IT in Berlin. A Business Development Manager from Norway moved the career ladder up and is now Director of Business Development in Frankfurt a.M.
