Miranda R Roberts, Spring 2018 Participant
Before traveling, I hoped to develop new international relationships and learn things through a new mindset and perspective. I believe my program met my goals very well. Classes with group work were structured to provide a mix of German and exchange students, which taught me a lot. Spending time studying and traveling with people from all over the world expands the way you think about business, and the world itself. I also had the opportunity to travel almost every weekend and seeing so much of Germany and Europe gave me the confidence to travel alone in the future and the experience to navigate through new cultures.

Spring 2018 Participant
I loved traveling on the weekends. School schedules are pretty flexible at WHU with most classes only meeting once a week, so it was easy to plan trips around class.

Spring 2015 Participant
I liked getting to know other exchange students and WHU students. I got to know people not only from Germany, but from all over the world, and learn about their cultures. It is pretty unique to say you have friends from multiple continents.
