Student Profile(s)

IMAT Graduate (Germany)

"Studying in IMAT has allowed me to discover, develop, and enhance my own potential. Due to the variety of lecturers from academic, governmental, and business backgrounds as well as the cross-cultural experiences that APU in Japan and IfaS in Germany offer, I have gained confidence in international cooperation, broadened my horizons, and nurtured my passion in this innovative and emerging field of study."

IMAT Graduate (Germany)

"The two-year IMAT graduate program broadened my horizons, reaching beyond the conventional boundaries of discipline, culture and business. IMAT provides a unique theoretical and practical setting within small-sized classes, enriched by valuable debates and input on sustainability issues and challenges. This included looking at issues such as management practices and policy aspects of waste and wastewater management, energy efficiency, renewable energy and technology from different perspectives. Thus we were encouraged to develop critical and holistic thinking skills as well as problem-solving capabilities tailored to specific projects or situations. From this study, I learned to view things differently and to see potentials and opportunities in every challenge to move towards more sustainable development. Also, I appreciated the international and multicultural integration of the program offered both in Japan and Germany. I personally valued meeting people from different parts of the world which boosted my intercultural competence and open-mindedness to succeed in today’s global community."

IMAT Student (Fiji)

I was drawn to the IMAT program because of its interdisciplinary study approach and the opportunity to apply classroom taught theory into the field. Topics such as renewable energy financing, climate change policy, and wastewater management are essential to tackling the real-world sustainability issues of today. I have taken part in dynamic in-class debates and visits to renewable energy sites such as biomass, wind, and solar energy facilities, cultivating a mindset for critical thinking, developing a capacity to work in multicultural environments, and nurturing my analytical and leadership competence.
