Studying in München

Munich, which is world-famous for its one-of-a-kind combination of economic power and quality of life, is an absolutely perfect choice for students of international business administration. The metropolis is one of Europe’s leading business regions. World-class German companies, including BMW, Allianz and Siemens, have their headquarters in Munich. Global players, such as Microsoft, Intel and General Electric, as well as numerous start-ups, have long come to appreciate the benefits of Munich as an economic region.

However, the economic landscape is not the only attribute that makes Munich such an attractive place to study. As a “global city with a big heart”, Munich has made a name for itself as a place that melds Bavarian tradition and global culture.

It is the one and only place where you can join the celebrations of the world’s largest folk festival, the Oktoberfest right after paying a visit to one of the world-famous museums of the Pinakothek. The Frauenkirche, the Englischer Garten, the Olympic Stadium and other sights have become landmarks of a city that likes to be called ”a village of millions at the foot of the Alps” or “Italy’s northernmost city”.
