"The year at ESMT is one of the best things that ever happened to me. It has been a game changer in both my career and life. The year is intense, so it is up to you to balance and prioritize: You can learn enough, a lot, or everything. Some professors were awesome, while others were ‘only’ great. But the learning came both from faculty and my classmates."

"Career Services are present throughout the year and are as useful as you want them to be. My personal coach helped me improve my soft skills, which was just as important as the knowledge learned in the classroom. The organized company visits were a very useful way to start discerning the career path I wanted to pursue post-MBA. Other important milestones in my career search were the interview day and the case practice day. These two events were crucial for my preparation of job interviews, and helped me understand my strengths and weaknesses – which ultimately benefitted me during my job search."

"Berlin is a vibrant city, culturally fascinating and affordable compared to other capitals in Europe. It is a city where cultures come together in an exciting and fast-moving environment. It has all the comfort and advantages a big city provides, while still offering quiet residential neighborhoods. Studying at ESMT has not only allowed me to study business concepts, but has also enabled me to learn from a very diverse group of people, creating a very enriching experience. In terms of professional development, an MBA will help you land your dream job. But for me personally, the greatest asset of my MBA is the opportunity to be part of an amazing network at ESMT."
