Your international mindset paves the way for a career anywhere in the world. English is the main teaching and interaction language but you pick and work on a foreign language of your choice (German, Spanish, Chinese, French). We take the word 'international' all the way: in case studies, in group works, in our teaching staff and in our study trips (eg to San Francisco). Ready, set, go?

Coaching and Mentoring of Students

Skills such as effective time management, minute taking, planning, organizing etc. are not only useful for the future professional life but also contribute to being successful in higher education. Personal supervision of each student by his/her study coach will complement this course unit throughout the first year.
