I am in the final year of my Master's in International Management and am majoring in Service management and IT. My background happens to be in Hospitality business management but I have found enormous support at IU as I transition into Service management which is meant to equip me with knowledge and skills to steer any organization into success in the current dynamic business world.
The programme content at IU is so elaborate that at the end of every module, I gain complete confidence in handling problems that may crop up in any business sector. Most of the tutors are professionals in their areas of specialization and come with updated knowledge on all aspects highlighted in the provided texts.There is also constant review of the scripts so that the material provided remains current.
The challenge here is that classes start any day and so there are times when one may feel lonely while beginning and unable to get feedback from other students. However this is taken care of by the fortnightly live tutorials in which other students are able to interact with the tutors.

  • Continues academic support from the highly experienced tutors
  • Live tutorial sessions for all to interact
  • Hugely discounted fees
  • Time management where a lot of discipline is required in balancing between work and study
  • There could be a delay in responding to questions asked online
  • Some tutors may not reply to issues raised from the scripts either in form of typos or citations.

Julian R

Job Title
Having studied, lived, and worked in 6 different European cities, Julian is a perfect example of why young people should broaden their horizons and explore different cultures and countries.

What is your favorite travel memory?

I love nature and sports. My favorite travels have always been exploring the natural beauty of countries by bike, canoe, or by foot. Living in Europe gives you access to so many beautiful places, Italy, Spain, and Portugal, only to name a few.

And the diversity is amazing, from food to architecture to landscapes. It's a real treat for anyone.

How have you changed/grown since working for your current company?

Being able to work with and meet so many people from different countries has made me very versatile and able to adapt to any situation. It also helps you develop your communication skills which also grows your general confidence. You become much more socially empathic, and a gives you a world of opportunities.

What is the best story you've heard from a return student?

We have students from really small towns that had the courage to move to a big city and study there. The best stories are always the students that went back to their community and helped other people make that same decision. They act as ambassadors for us but, more importantly, for giving access to education to young people all over the world.

If you could go on any program that your company offers, which one would you choose and why?

I would do a bachelor's studies in Berlin. Not only can you choose from over 50 study subjects, but the campus is located in the heart of the city, and Berlin is one of the most exciting cities I've ever come across. The people are open-minded, and there's just a limitless offer of things to do and see, and it's all affordable.

What makes your company unique? When were you especially proud of your team?

The flexibility is really unique in the sense that you can study how, where, and when you want. We're especially proud of being able to offer affordable quality education. As we offer all courses in English, we can really offer a unique opportunity to people that had no access to this type of education before.

What do you believe to be the biggest factor in being a successful company?

Continuous improvement of many aspects of studying, it being program content, campus facilities, support to students, tools, cultural agenda, etc. Being able to adapt to technological or social changes quickly and learn from mistakes made in the past is really important for an institution in higher education.
