Testimonials of alumni who participated in a program with DHBW

Lizaveta Makratsova, alumni of Kozminski University

My program is pretty unique and special when comparing it with other programs at Kozminski University. Here we are at the same time students of two universities as well as interns in chosen companies. During these 3 years we have both theoretical knowledge and practical experience, what actually nowadays is the best preparation for the challenging future. But what I really do appreciate the most about this program is its diversity and multi-city feeling. In my small group of 15 students we have people from 6 countries, therefore, we have a lot of things to share and obviously it increases our cultural knowledge and communication abilities.

Joanna Burzec, alumni of Kozminski University

The added value for students, which are a part of the program is enormous. The business knowledge development, the overall world economy understanding, languages and social, management skills, and many others. This is the unique opportunity to study and work in a multinational environment and develop all the possible abilities on a daily basis, which no other university in Poland offers. There is nothing more valuable than combining the theoretical knowledge and then putting it into practice during internships. Theoretical part - the lectures at the two universities is essential and being in a small group (around 15 people) allows everybody to have the possibility to participate actively in the lectures, always ask questions and understand everything, going home with no doubts.This is the added value, which no other university in Poland can offer.
