Why? According to a study from the DAAD (Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst) in cooperation with the Institut der Deutschen Wirtschaft Köln employers appreciate very much if graduates have international experiences: International mobility and practical experiences connected to the individual study program sharpen one’s international and intercultural competences as well as prepare for future global working life. Experience in a foreign country help also the personal development and broaden one´s horizon.

What? Every experience you made in an international frame during your studies at Hochschule Fresenius will be subsumed under the Certificate of International Competence, which will confirm an international portfolio for your CV: Semesters abroad, language courses, internships in foreign companies as well as international commitment at universities.
