Getting an MBA from the Berlin Professional School was one the best professional and personal decisions that I have made. It was great to learn from professors that were also engaged in the business community. My professors taught us the how to apply what we learned to real-world situations. The curriculum was very interesting, with special courses in personal development as well. The class was very diverse; it was great for learning about new cultures and how business is conducted throughout the world. Through alumni networking and graduate talks, I found my dream job. The program attracts extraordinary and driven individuals, and we were able to learn a lot from each other.
