Nathaly Eiche

"Studying at EU definitely helped me on my path. I really enjoyed learning from lecturers who would come from work to teach us or who had their own companies. Thinking back, I really, I mean really learned a lot from them. It wasn’t just theory they taught us but how to use that knowledge in real-life business situations. They taught us not just from books, but from their daily experience. I also enjoyed the internationality of it. I still have so many friends all around the world with whom I connected so deeply during my studies."
