One of our greatest assets is our ability to work with students individually. We help them plan their academic and professional future and want them to make the most out of their experience while studying at our school.
We emphasize on individual counseling, on personal development and on cross-cultural thinking, and prepare students to critically reflect on issues, to communicate effectively, to value teamwork and to appropriately use ICT to meet a company's ever changing organizational needs. We are convinced that fostering in students a desire for economic, social and environmental responsibilities, will reflect on their future development as leaders.
We support our students in planning their career paths by offering the possibility of meeting with business professionals interested in recruiting graduates. Our study programs are designed to meet the demands of a broad range of business professions. Students are also assisted with finding attractive internships and jobs with local companies as well as with multinational companies and organizations. In addition, we also review our students' CV's and provide useful tips for job interviews.
Course materials are published in a digital format on the Online Student Portal. Students are advised to have a personal laptop available for the duration of their studies. The campuses are equipped with the latest wireless technology linked to a broadband internet connection. Upon registration, students are provided with a personal e-mail address and are authorized for access to the Online Student Portal. Books are available in our library for study purposes.
The Online Student Portal provides access not only to course materials but also to class schedules, available jobs and internships, information about events and student activities, course registration and enrolment, and various other relevant information. The Forum allows students to publish classifieds, engage in online discussions, share pictures and interesting links and stay in touch with fellow classmates or with students from other campus locations.
