"Many of my classmates are international students, and they come from all over the world (e.g., Dubai, Mexico, Spain, Pakistan, China, South Africa). You get to meet a lot of people and new cultures. In addition, one of the key characteristics that makes this program different from other Business Masters here is the small scale of the program. There is great interaction with teachers and among students."
