What our students say

Shaini Aishwarya Ebi Rajkumar "I am enjoying every minute of being an International Management student at Hochschule Wismar. I have the opportunity to learn and socialise in a wonderfully diverse classroom. The lectures are interactive and the modules we learn prepare us for the real-world challenges. Activities with the International student community here is something that I always look forward to. Living and studying in this cosy little city by the ocean just tops everything!"

Torsten Schabbehard "Looking back, I can say that it was a very good decision to study International Management at Wismar University. Not only did I get to know great people with different cultural backgrounds, but I was also very well prepared for my future career due to a very good combination of practical and theoretical contents. Interesting excursions to business partners in the region rounded off my studies. I also took the opportunity to spend a semester abroad in another European country, which I was also able to integrate into my studies without any difficulties. All in all, I can say that the 3 Master semesters were an incredibly good experience and I am very grateful for it!"

Yahya Yacoob "Wismar UAS had been a great experience where I learned to have fun but to thrive and to develop my business background with its models that had been provided in the international Management Masters programme. Not to forget the great international people that I met and the opportunities that I was given to graduate with 1.4. Grateful."
