Why did you choose XU?

I noticed the school because I heard about it through a friend. I liked the XU immediately. The concepts of the university appeal to me. I’ve noticed that times are changing. I chose XU because I see the future at this school. The world is changing and in order to be successful, you have to keep up with the times. I want to be a part of this change and with the knowledge that is given to us at XU, I have the chance to do so. The world for which XU prepares me is the world in which I want to live. I am looking forward to interesting lectures with interesting people and I am happy to be a part of it.

Why did you choose your course of studies?

I have always been interested in knowing how business works. I wanted to be sure that what I was studying was really something I was interested in. I wanted to be sure that this is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. Digital business encompasses the economy of tomorrow. New technologies are being developed, interpersonal culture is being reshaped and economic systems need to be redesigned. There is a change that I want to be a part of.

What was important to you when choosing your place to study?

It was important for me to know that I would not spend the next few years investing my time in outdated knowledge. At XU, professors who are at the forefront of their field teach us. Knowledge comes from experience and therefore I am sure that these people can provide us with valuable insights.
