Internationalization

We succeed in attracting foreign students. Their study environment is a tolerant, open-minded multicultural community. KU offers a number of programs taught in English – at all levels of education. Those who run courses in English are e.g. teachers and scientists working on a regular basis for such prestigious foreign higher education institutions as MIT, Harvard University, or ESCP Business School. The Academy also invites outstanding business scientists e.g. from MIT and Northeastern University to participate in guest lectures and fellowships. Our academic teachers include representatives of global companies and banks, such as CITI, Oracle, Goldman Sachs.  Our students can take advantage of a foreign exchange program by going to one of our partner universities for half a year or a full year, with destinations including Japan, France, Iceland, Canada, New Zealand, Norway, Peru, Portugal, the UK, and many more. Students and graduates have also an opportunity to serve internships and traineeships with international companies such as Google, Hilti, or Nike.

We encourage students to take advantage of this opportunity because it is a great chance to gain additional ECTS credits and at the same time broaden their horizons and establish new relationships.
