Students' testimonials

There is definitely something special about Kozminski University, I was hoping to find after completing my Bachelor studies in Germany. Starting from day one you could sense the diverse and vivid atmosphere of discussion and collaboration across the campus. During our classes, taught by professors with years of practical experience, there was an exceptional balance between theoretical approaches and hands-on projects. Especially the direct contact with caring professors and the small number of students within each class, created an environment of dynamic exchange, where nobody was left out or felt too shy to express his/her opinion. Beside all academical competencies learned in class, it is the personal growth which impressed me the most at KU. Due to its inspiring environment of students from all around the world and various projects throughout the year, you are constantly encouraged to develop your personal skills and find your real strength along the way. Within my double degree program I even had the opportunity to study abroad for a whole year, adding yet another competitive edge to my profile. Without the amazing experience at KU, I would not have earned two international diplomas, have lifelong friends and business contacts around the globe and have the great confidence to start my own business today.
