A decision for life
I knew about IMC Krems through my family and because two students on the Export-oriented Management programme visited my school, which is where they had been to high school. I also went to the BeSt³ careers and university exhibition in Vienna and I came to the open day here in Krems to gather as much information as possible.
No comparable degree programmes
A decisive factor for me was that I was able to combine business and languages, and that the programme was taught in English. I spent a lot of time looking at the courses offered at Austrian universities of applied sciences, but there was no other programme that combined my interests like this one. And it has exceeded my expectations. I have started Arabic as part of my degree, to add to my English, French and Chinese.
International spirit in Krems
Another great thing is the diversity in terms of international students here – not just on my programme, but generally speaking in Krems. Learning together and from one another – from different cultures – that's a very special part of studying here. I was also really impressed by the lecturers with professional experience, because you can tell how much they enjoy teaching.
At the admissions interview, make sure you demonstrate your interest in the programme you are going for. It may sound obvious, but it’s not really. I didn’t have a plan B, which I was totally honest about at the interview.
