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.
