    Germany is one of the leading powerhouses of Europe with a consistent surplus on its GDP. Driven by one of its most powerful industries, namely the automotive industry, the German market economy is one of the largest in the world and continues to thrive.

    Many of the big players in the corporate world, which are attractive to business students, conduct their activities on German soil. The possibilities for a student to embark on an illustrious career here in Germany are seemingly endless.

    Communication in Germany is fairly easy since most Germans speak and understand English as it is taught in schools. Having said that, German is also considered to be the third most spoken language in the world.

    Germany offers a student a variety of possibilities from exciting nightlife to wondrous nature. A large portion of Germany is still covered in forests and woodlands. The standard of living is high in Germany and it is also increasingly international given its generous immigration policies.

    Germany is also one of the most conscious countries in terms of its environmental protection and social engagement policies. To top it all, the Germans make for very nice and kind friends and fellow colleagues.

    Finance by any standard is a very important part of business studies. At the end of the day, whether we like it or not - money does make the world go round. Any form of activity, any form of decision requires an understanding of finance.

    The ability to deal with finance in its various forms is very important to develop students into responsible citizens of the future. Finance will remain a strong subject as long as there are businesses to be conducted around the world.

    The student will really be at the right place at the right time armed with the right tools. Given Brexit and the rising importance of Frankfurt as the next financial heart of the EU, there is no better place to be than in Germany, of course, armed with the knowledge of Finance.

    So the prospects, especially now, given the changes in the UK and the US, are very good in Germany. The pay-scales at entry levels are also very competitive complemented by the high standard of living.
