One of the aspects I like the most about the European Management degree is that students have the possibility to put the theory into practice by working with companies through different projects. Not only does this give a real life feeling and experience but it also helps to discover and develop skills that are essential for a future professional life.

Although my main subject was marketing, I also had the possibility to gain knowledge in financial topics which enabled me to develop and strengthen my analysis skills and contemplate different situation from a broader perspective.

Moreover, through this study course I learned better how to work in an international environment with people from different backgrounds and cultures - which I really enjoyed!
