"EU broadened my mindset and set me on the right path to building my own business. The entrepreneurial spirit at EU is strong, and the international student crowd builds a solid foundation for lasting alumni relationships."
Christoph Kastenholz | Founding Partner, Pulse Advertising | Bachelor of Business Administration
"The reason I went to EU was because of its small class sizes and it was all international students. There were many students from the Middle East, from Asia, South America, and I think that having that wide-range of backgrounds is something that I later found extremely helpful when working in an international environment."
Marie-Francine Richard | Technology Consulting Manager, Accenture (UK) Limited | Master of Business Administration
"At EU, I found intellectually stimulating discussions, international colleagues, networking opportunities and relevant courses that bridge business theory and practice. After my MBA, I felt I could immediately apply the knowledge and skills I had acquired to my work."
