  • What do you like about Bremen and studying at the IGC?

Uniqueness of Bremen is that it’s a maritime city with 1,200 years of history. It is easy to get around the city, which has a high quality and affordable living. More than 30,000 students live and study in Bremen. It is centrally located in Europe and Bremen is an ideal starting point for trips to destinations such as Hamburg, Berlin, Paris, Rome, Brussels, or Amsterdam, to name but a few. Bremen offers affordable cost of living, public transportation and health insurance with relatively lower crime rate.

The MGM Program is very practical, business oriented and directed very much towards the industry. It’s a perfect blend of subjects like Global Marketing, Strategic Management, Global Finance, Global Management and are specifically in line with my professional goals. I believe that the knowledge I’ve acquired in this MGM Program will enable me to simplify, and to solve high-level business problems, and will assist me to apply quantitative skills and to develop proper optimization business strategies.

  • Tell us about your journey to the IGC: Where are you from, how did you come to Bremen and what made you decide to come here.

Originating from India and with 15 years of professional experience in Project Supply Chain & Logistics Management, I was inspired to join MGM Program in IGC, Bremen as I believed it could enhance my professional work profile and add value to my academics and to my Bachelors in Mechanical Engineering. I believe that the knowledge I’ve acquired in this MGM Program will help me succeed in enhancing my work profile in the most advanced technological country in the world.

Germany is a paradise for MBA graduates. Germans are welcoming and inviting towards international students. I preferred Germany as it is the third most popular destination among international students and the fourth strongest economy in the world. With MBA at affordable price and with studies in English, Germany is the ultimate choice of any student in today’s times. Germany is a land of opportunities where punctuality is a tradition and there is quality in education, work ethics and lifestyle.
