Student reviews

This is what our students say

  • Anne-Kathrin Gansebohm

    Online student

    “I wanted a career change but still be able to apply the knowledge I've gained to my work.„

  • Patrick Schott

    Online student

    “Despite already having two other degrees, I realised that IT offers great potential – so I took on a third degree at IU!„

  • Nina Schwarting


    “I chose to pursue an MBA due to its practical relevance, especially the case studies, which were particularly exciting for me. Thanks to IU’s flexibility, I was able to combine my studies with my job, where I was often able to apply what I was learning. For many people, education has negative connotations due to their school experiences. That is a shame, because learning has changed so much in recent years. There are great new learning formats and strategies, and you can now shape your own career more freely than ever before, as job profiles are constantly changing. That’s my professional mission: show people how to turn learning into a lifestyle.„
