One of the reason why I chose Kozminski is because I really enjoy the practical approach of the program they are offering as well as the reputation it obtained. I first heard of the University from the Financial Times ranking. In addition to that, the business school also offers wide range of the program and electives, which allows students to customize their program. The international accreditation also boosted my confidence about choosing this business school, as I know the quality of the education, teaching and research will be up to  the international standard. The school also partners with many companies in Poland, therefore, it also gives me an opportunity to gain work experience in Poland. What is more, the tuition fees are also quite reasonable. I researched many school in Europe and the world and  I wasn’t able to find a business school, which would meet my financial requirement as well as my career opportunities. I completed my bachelor degree at Aberystwyth University, Wales. With the current unstable situations in the United Kingdom, I think that Poland, especially Kozminski University, was be the best choice for me. I would give the future and prospective students advice, that will be ‘Come to join Kozminski family with an open-minded and curiosity attitude’.

For me Kozminski University has been one of the best choices of my life. The high in the FT ranking, practical methodology, highly graded faculty members and the friendly staff members at the University make it a perfect choice to pursue your education. The way of teaching with case studies and group works brings out the individuals full potential on the particular topic. My fellow classmates are from diversified backgrounds but we are united. I strongly believe that this is the best possible way for me to start my career in the financial sector.

The Master in Finance track at Kozminski University is characterized by dedicated students and top-level professors that fosters an environment for aspiring finance professionals. My reason for applying to Kozminski was due to their high international school rankings, and to study in Eastern Europe’s largest economy. Solving business cases with groups of students, gives us a great advantage tackling real life scenarios after graduation.  Our curriculum is heavy on quantitative subjects, but it also contains leadership development courses to help us succeed in management positions further down our career path. With Poland’s recent economic success, I believe that having experience and network in this region will give me a competitive advantage in my career.

The F&A program at Kozminski University enriches every aspect of my life. It is not only a place of academic excellence but also a place to turn into a real practitioner. Based on the case study approach, we learn to read critically and to question the issues, in order to unravel the essence of each story. Due to the highly international environment, the solutions are one of a kind as we incorporate ideas from around 15 different countries. The required techniques to live up to expectations are taught by lecturers who themselves have numerous years of practical experience and communicate their unwritten golden rules. At KU you are not just a number but rather a promising individual that gets all assistance needed. After your studies you not only end up with a degree but also with an excellent network. Without KU’s major in International Banking, I probably would have not had the opportunity to find such a fantastic employment at an international bank.

Petra Pawlowski (Germany), Master in Finance and Accounting Alumni

There is definitely something special about Kozminski University, I was hoping to find after completing my Bachelor studies in Germany. Starting from day one you could sense the diverse and vivid atmosphere of discussion and collaboration across the campus. During our classes, taught by professors with years of practical experience, there was an exceptional balance between theoretical approaches and hands-on projects. Especially the direct contact with caring professors and the small number of students within each class, created an environment of dynamic exchange, where nobody was left out or felt too shy to express his/her opinion. Beside all academical competencies learned in class, it is the personal growth which impressed me the most at KU. Due to its inspiring environment of students from all around the world and various projects throughout the year, you are constantly encouraged to develop your personal skills and find your real strength along the way. Within my double degree program I even had the opportunity to study abroad for a whole year, adding yet another competitive edge to my profile. Without the amazing experience at KU, I would not have earned two international diplomas, have lifelong friends and business contacts around the globe and have the great confidence to start my own business today.
