#On the Move - Internationally During the Studies
MBA students get to experience South Korean culture
ISM student Ravinder Atwal has gained many new insights through her intercultural experience during her module abroad in South Korea in fall 2022: "We were able to gain many insights into Korean culture in a very short time. Every day was very eventful and exciting. To learn about the South Korean culture and their way of thinking will be quite helpful while doing business with them or even other Asian countries."
During their time in South Korea, the MBA students attended classes on global supply chain management, visited a Bosch plant in Daejeon and a traditional Hanok Village. In addition, they used the time to explore South Korea as a study group.

#Springboard to Your Career
MBA studies as a career springboard
"An important part of the MBA program was individual coaching. The potential analysis and the discussions with the coach helped me to recognize my strengths and weaknesses and to work on them in a targeted way." Nadine Roszewicz works in a CRM project for the Key Account Management/Sales department at Schenker AG in Essen. She deliberately chose the MBA General Management in order to gain an insight into the various areas of the company such as strategy, marketing, finance and human resources and thus to be even more broadly positioned for her further professional development.
