„Studying Operational Excellence at Hof University has been a remarkable experience.
Here it is possible to meet great people and gain valuable knowledge. What I like about the program is the consolidation between the business administration and engineering sides. Grasping both extents provides a holistic approach for better decision-making and practical problem-solving. Also, the German language classes and the compulsory internship are big highlights for international students like me.
Hof is a peaceful and lovely town. Being so close to nature is one of the things I liked the most. The people from the university are always willing to help, which makes the integration process very pleasant. I‘ve been able to get in touch with amazing people and make friends for life.“
Aditya from India
„The M.B.A. and Eng. in Operational Excellence has one of the most attractive course structures for a Master’s student in Germany. One year of classroom training followed by a 6- month mandatory internship and a 6-month thesis mark it as a complete package. This combined theoretical and practical experience builds the students in a way that they are regarded as a valuable asset for the organization post-graduation.
Another, very important aspect when you want to survive in Germany is the local language, German. The program makes sure that you reach at least German B1 proficiency level by making A2 and B1 level mandatory subjects.“
Edgardo from El Salvador
