At Kozminski University we teach real business,but we want our students to learn business not only from one perspective.

Recognizing the need of a hands-on approach, we offer our students five unique majors that they can choose from. As part of our curriculum, students will have a chance to face real business dilemmas, addressing social and business challenges, in a project-based approach, using case studies. Choosing the Master in Management program is an investment towards a better starting platform for your career and personal development.

Students' testimonials

I am glad that I chose the Master in Management program at Kozminski University. After having worked at an IT company in Minsk and then later in Moscow for a while, I was considering receiving a proper business education abroad. Kozminski and the Master in Management program are highly ranked by Financial Times and some of my friends (now successful businessmen) studied here. So, there was no doubt of applying to Kozminski. The Master in Management program a good mixture of theoretical knowledge and provides practical skills in the fields of Business Strategy and Management, Accounting and Economics, Management Psychology and many more. All the cases we discuss during the seminars are real up-to-date business cases of Polish companies and international big brands, which allows me to see what is going on under the hood in the real companies. Apart from receiving a useful theoretical base, Kozminski teaches me soft skills such as adaptability, flexibility, stress management, and many other skills which will be applicable in my further career – whether it is a corporate world or my own startup. Though it might sound nerdy, I do enjoy my studies for the value of the knowledge the students receive here is immense.

Anastasiya Mazets, Belarus, Master in Management student

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.
