A year in Germany was an utterly incredible experience for me. Having one semester studying German, we got the chance to explore and experience their culture. The internship challenged both our hard skills and soft skills, as we not only had to complete the project, but also we had to interact with foreign co- workers. Overall, the exchange program gave us the opportunity to develop and challenge ourselves independently. Read more

Rinaldi Raymond - Senior Global Trade Advisory Deloitte Indonesia

Business & Management

I would describe Swiss German University has played a key role in my professional experience. It was exciting and dynamic. The best thing about being a student here is the number of additional opportunities that are available. I was initially attracted here by the international university reputation and my career goals. The best thing about the degree is having the freedom to think of an idea and test its practical application. I feel extremely lucky to be in an environment that is surrounded by true professionals and allow me to do research on what interests me the most. To any new students coming to the University, I would say this: Throw yourself at every opportunity that comes your way. If it gets too much, you can always scale back, but those opportunities can make all the difference between getting what you want and having to settle for second best. Read more
