What our students say about us Warren Channell

Warren Channell

What motivated you to study at SRH Hochschule Berlin?

I reached a critical point in my career where it was impossible to be promoted any further or to pursue senior leadership roles without having a formal business education. So I made a personal goal to take a break from my work in order to add a noteworthy business degree to my resume. I first considered the price and realised that university tuition in Germany is a fraction of the cost of what it is in the United States, so I started searching for Business Administration programs in Germany. I was specifically looking for a competitive, international business curriculum, in a practical teaching environment, instructed in English, and I found it at SRH Berlin. After visiting the campus and meeting the faculty, I knew that I was in the right place.

What do you enjoy about your studies/your university the most?

The small class sizes make it easy for me to ask the lecturer detailed questions in order to make sure that I completely understand each objective. Additionally, students here are from all over the world, they offer sharp, creative input, and analysis from their own unique experiences; so our in class discussions are often fascinating. For an added bonus, I’m building great friendships with incredibly talented classmates from around the world.

How will your degree from SRH help you reach your professional goals?

I started working on my professional goals long before my first day of school at SRH Berlin. With a general understanding of the direction I’m headed in, I shared these goals with my lecturers and the university's Career Services Department. In response, both the university and my teachers began to offer me relevant case studies to industry specific challenges, and critical one on one feedback to help me develop the specific skills I need to pursue my professional goals.
