As an International Student in Munich: François @ Munich Business School

François Plassat from the French MBS partner university EDHEC Business School spent two semesters abroad at Munich Business School as an exchange student. In the blog article, he reports on his experiences on campus and in the Bavarian capital Munich.

I had the amazing opportunity to spend an entire year at Munich Business School. MBS has done all it could to make us, the students from abroad, feel at home. I still remember the first day when we were all welcomed on campus and it was just a great feeling! 

Regarding the classes, MBS offers a wide range of different and specialized courses, from finance to marketing to HR, start-up and innovation and many others. All classes share the common goal of preparing students to face the future with adequate tools to thrive in the upcoming challenging environment of real life. The lecturers are knowledgeable and dedicated to their mission, always finding time to answer students’ questions.

Furthermore, it is worth mentioning that MBS students come from all around the world. In my class solely, I had fellow students from France, South Korea, Germany, Russia, America, Hong-Kong and more. This brought a truly international vibe and is a big part of what you expect to get when attending a business school: meeting people from different cultural backgrounds, with different visions and ideas, while still all being connected by the will to work together and perform well.

Another tremendous asset of studying at MBS and in Munich is the city itself. Munich is such a lovely city, with its own atmosphere, architecture, numerous beer gardens, and fun traditions. Whoever ends up living in Munich will have so many experiences and activities to do before leaving that he/she will feel like time has been so ridiculously short and has flown by. Whether you are hiking in the mountains, for example near the famous Neuschwanstein Castle, enjoying some delicious Bavarian beers in one of the many green parks scattered amongst the city, or even just wandering in the old town and admiring the Marienplatz: there is clearly no shortage of things to do in Munich. On top of that it is extremely easy to get around in Munich thanks to its super well developed and on-time public transports system. 

Overall, I was more than delighted with my experience in Munich and at MBS and would warmly recommend anyone who is offered this opportunity to firmly grasp it and get swept away into an unforgettable adventure that will shape you forever.
