I went on a family trip to Germany. There I was too much attracted to the education system and the way the people were living. As I have completed my high school, I proposed this idea in front of my father and he agreed to it after some time. I have applied via Uni-assist to this college after searching a lot and reading a lot of good reviews. I was also required to pay the application fee of € 75.
Course Curriculum :
The program is divided into six semesters. In the first four semesters, the basics of business administration, economics, and business informatics will be taught. The last two semesters serve to deepen knowledge in a special field of business administration. Depending on interests, I can choose from certain areas.
