"CKM Model Berlin", Bert Eichhorn

What our students say about us Judith de Haas, International Management student

Why did you choose to study at SRH Hochschule Berlin?

I decided to study International Management after I have already walked on a very varied life path. As a musician, yoga teacher and initiator with a huge hunger for academic challenges, I wanted to commit to a programme which could help me to develop the skills to take a more responsible role in the cultural field.

What do you like about your studies?

The International Management programme gives me the basics to hold onto when organising performing arts projects. At first, I didn’t know where to start, and my studies help me not to see too many obstructions but to just go for it, step by step.

How do you experience the international approach of SRH?

Actually, just being in my class is a very international experience. Everyday again. I think we have about 15-20 different nationalities in the year group. It is fantastic to work with so many different people and cultural values on study subjects but also to spend time together out of school. I have always been internationally-oriented and hearing and experiencing other approaches to business issues is an important aspect of future international working environments. Moreover, I just love connecting to people, from anywhere, to share experiences on a super open level. With its international representation, SRH makes it possible to be part of this.

What is your favourite learning or working experience at SRH?

My favourite working experience is while learning! I’m very eager to learn and work together with the organisers of events that I performed in myself. This gives me the inspiration to walk my own path.

What our students say about us Liebelei Lawrence

Lawrence Liebelei

What motivated you to study at SRH Hochschule Berlin?

I applied to the M.A. in International Management programme at SRH Hochschule Berlin, because I was looking for an accredited programme which would be taught in English, that didn't necessarily require a business-related Bachelor degree and that was more practice- than theory-oriented.

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

My experience at SRH Hochschule Berlin, and in the M.A. of International Management in particular, was greatly enriched by how multicultural the student body was. Furthermore, the support and backing from the SRH staff and program director was unparalleled.

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

My studies at SRH Hochschule Berlin have provided me with a balanced, well-rounded and practical education, which I feel has prepared me perfectly for a smooth transition into the working world.
