The exchange and trade of goods and services is what defines all our human relationships. That is why I am sure economics needs to have a human perspective and be guided by clear values. I want to understand the economy as something that is not merely a way of maximizing returns and having simply a profit mentality, but by sustainability and commitment. An economy where globalization is perceived not as a threat but as an opportunity for fair and humane treatment. This is one of the reasons I chose the International Business study program at Karlshochschule.
Because here the economy is studied not just in economic terms, but also as a cultural and linguistic phenomenon. Here is where I can acquire the ability to identify differences within and between cultures and to act with confidence on an international level. One of the things that has helped me has been the wide range of management tools available to me at Karlshochschule.
One of the other benefits is that the International Business course has a completely international orientation: Right from the beginning, English is the course language, and learning at least one of another seven languages, such as Chinese or Russian, is mandatory.

"The Karlshochschule is a place in which every student is encouraged to believe in their dreams and ambitions, no matter their cultural or academical background. As a student there, I was given the keys and confidence I needed to realize my dream of traveling the world while succeeding professionally, by being taught that no dream was too big or too high and constantly being challenged to reconsider my ways of perceiving the world around me, which is what some people would call "Think out of the Box". But in order to think out of the box, you first need to think and fully understand the content of the box itself. Through high-quality course material, case studies, Karls-discussions and team activities, the Karlshochschule allows students from all around the world to gain the critical reasoning abilities that they will later need to succeed in the professional world."
