Outside of their academic work, students come together with their colleagues from the other programs. For those students from outside Germany, this helps to develop their German language skills and an understanding of how other nations think and live.
Personalities are developed through taking part in social and other activities and through working together in teams. We also help students develop their characters by requiring them to frequently take responsibility for many aspects of teaching, an example being the “session leaders” in Applied Business Psychology and Strategic Management and Leadership.
The fourth semester consists of an 18-week internship to give students a view of how real companies operate and to give them a chance to put some of the theory into practice. Last but not least, our students become fluent in English, since the programs are taught 100% in the English language.
Germany is a safe and stable country and choosing to study in a stable country is a good choice for future prospects. Furthermore, Germany is a liberal and welcoming country that is full of diversity. As Germany is such a popular study destination, there will be lots of other international students to make friends with.
The cost of living in Germany is surprisingly low when compared to other nearby countries. It’s even lower for students due to various student discounts.
Last but not least, the visa for international students in Germany is particularly strong, especially when it comes to the rules on staying in the country and traveling. Once having obtained a visa, students will be allowed to travel visa-free around the whole Schengen area and apply for a German residency permit that can last until well after graduation.
Studying business is a very good choice as there are a lot of potential career routes that our students can follow. It’s a degree that lots of companies will be interested in, so graduates will experience a wide range of diverse job opportunities.
The average starting salary for business graduates in an entry-level role is around €36,000-€42,000 a year. This is a very attractive starting salary compared to other professions, and it’s also a field that has good prospects for promotion.
In any case, by having a business degree, graduates probably won’t have to wait very long to find a job and there are plenty of options.
All study programs at HdWM are designed for an ideal transition into the working world. From the first semester on, we prepare our students by integrating practical elements into the curriculum.
Graduates will have the skills to take up junior management positions in smaller companies engaged in import /export activities in a range of countries.
In larger companies, the jobs are more likely to be trainee or assistant positions in a range of departments in which international business knowledge and intercultural skills are important.
