Name: Suneet Pandey From : New Delhi Cource : MBA Institution: EBS Business School Germany. studying in Germany to be a great experience I learned a lot about the culture, people, and the region in general. It always helps to travel and know things and break the stereotype. The duration of 18 months compared to one year in U.K. and two years in U.S. also seemed to fit in nicely. Additionally, the exchange semester at EBS was very interesting, something not possible in the other schools. The 100% tuition scholarship ended up being the icing on the cake! The ‘icing on the cake’ scholarship was the Peter- Horvath-Foundation scholarship which was awarded on a number of factors such as work- experience, GMAT, IELTS, personal interviews and the need for financing the studies. I made some great friends, learned a lot about the people and the culture, and in total I give the place a ’10 out of 10’. MYEXPERIENCE
