Students of the International Graduate Center are at home anywhere in the world. The IGC is committed to internationality which is promoted at all levels. Today, the IGC is among the leading graduate schools in Germany, with around 340 students from more than 60 nations.

The IGC’s international flair is the base for an intercultural exchange of experiences. This provides students with intercultural skills alongside the professional knowledge and knowledge of methods they gain from their studies. In addition to its international student body from around the world, half of the IGC’s lecturers come from partner universities and international businesses. In their seminars, the guest lecturers make an important contribution to the intercultural skills of the students and thus emphasise IGC’s international network.

Quality and innovation through world-wide cooperation with partner universities.

Furthermore, IGC is part of the International Business School Alliance (IBSA). The International MBA is a joint course offered within this network. Six partner universities in the USA, Great Britain, Spain, Russia, France and Germany pool their core skills in postgraduate studies, allowing the students to profit from the quality and international direction of the curriculum. This innovative study concept (whose graduates receive a dual Master's degree, within a year) prepares the students to be able to independently move into as-yet unknown territory. The IGC encourages students´ intercultural know-how in a completely new way – this know-how has become a key management qualification in our globalised world.
