What motivated you to study at SRH Hochschule Berlin?
As a pharmacist, I worked several years in the healthcare industry in Egypt and Saudi Arabia. Despite some concerns against leaving a secure nice job & a relaxed lifestyle to go back to university, I decided to jump out of my comfort zone and pursue a MBA degree at SRH Hochschule Berlin. Germany was the choice because, in addition to offering high quality education, it is home to renowned pharmaceutical companies and medical devices manufacturers. I chose to study at SRH because of the programme’s structure, which allows me to deepen my knowledge in the healthcare sector while exploring new areas of business knowledge. SRH has a nice international environment and being in the heart Berlin also gives you diverse options to have an exciting social life. I enjoy the programme’s international character. My fellow students come from all over the world and have varied educational and professional backgrounds. Nevertheless, we have a lot in common, since we were brought together by common professional interests and the will to learn and excel in our respective professions. I am confident that the MBA degree, combined with my previous work experience in multinational companies, will open up many interesting opportunities in the international healthcare sector.
