This is what our students say


    B.A. Digital Business

     "My online studies are easy to combine with swimming practices because it is completely free of time and location restraints. This great flexibility lets me study easily between workouts."

    Professional swimming athlete Celine Rieder’s dream has finally come true this year: after years of hard work, she was included in the German Olympic team for the first time, and competed against other international athletes in the Tokyo Olympics. But the 20-year-old is not just an Olympian – she’s also an IU student, working on completing her Bachelor’s degree in Digital Business.


    M.Sc. Artificial Intelligence

    “For engineers working in the very leading edge of technologies, it’s essential to keep up to date with developments. I’m convinced this programme will keep my knowledge current or even create a new trajectory for my career.”


    B.A. Business & Management

    “I found studying at IU to always be dynamic and exciting. There was the practical side of the learning, which was very important, but I was also never short of opportunities to be academically challenged.”


    M.A. Business & Management

    "In an IU online learning programme, everyone can specialise in the way they want."

  • Anke Kutter

    B.A. International Healthcare Management

    "Online studies offer a huge opportunity for advancing in your professional life, because well-trained specialists are in high demand. Even at the age of 50, I was able to find a great job after graduation. Despite having 25 years of professional experience in the healthcare sector, my studies still provided some “a-ha” moments which I was able to implement in my professional life."
