What our students think about IU
In both my passion and my career, the skills and competencies I learned at IU have made a big difference.
Online student, Syria
The degree programme at IU is an excellent preparation for students seeking a career as an investment banker.
IU offered a great international, yet intimate, atmosphere and a portfolio of study programmes with a global outlook.
I really like the diversity of the materials available at IU. This means I can always adjust how I study based on my learning needs and preferences. In addition, I love studying at IU because I can study anywhere and anytime I want. Together with IU's study materials, I feel prepared, confident and ready for the future.

I wait for no one! All depends on me and I could do it whenever it made more sense… I set weekly small goals and step by step I'm able to keep motivated
I am Indian by descent but raised across 3 continents. Staying in Germany allowed me to gain valuable insights into the importance of maintaining a healthy work-life balance in order to optimize your personal and professional goals. Additionally, Germany offers a unique opportunity to explore the entire EU and gain invaluable first-hand experience in developing soft skills.
