Lernen und Freundschaften schließen

Seit 2015 ist die WU Mitglied im prestigeträchtigen Global Business Schools Network (GBSN). Im Zuge der Mitgliedschaft in diesem Netzwerk rief das Zentrum für Auslansstudien der WU 2017 erstmals ein Stipendienprogramm ins Leben, das es vier Studierenden aus strukturell benachteiligten Regionen ermöglichte, an der Internationalen Sommeruniversität an der WU (ISU) teilzunehmen. Neben Workshops, Seminaren und Kursen standen auch gemeinsame Aktivitäten und der Aufbau von internationalen Freundschaften im Vordergrund. Die Erfahrungen, die die Studierenden aus Kenia, China und Südafrika hier sammeln konnten, zeigen, wie wichtig es ist, über den Tellerrand hinauszuschauen.

„I fell in love with Austria!“

Purity Namasaka, Strathmore Business School, Strathmore University, Nairobi, Kenia:
„The academic program was informative and it gave a new perspective with regard to financial markets, business strategy and project management. The program though is quite intensive, having the practibility aspect, which for the first time I can say I relate classroom knowledge and industrial applicability. The lecturers knew their stuff. The leisure program was the best part of the summer program which to be sincere made me fall in love with Austria (a country that I had little interest before joining the summer program). The leisure program gave me the opportunity to build friendships with other students.

„I am honoured to have been part of it“

Marian Chatoro, Strathmore Business School, Strathmore University, Nairobi, Kenia

The academic program was quite thorough, and I was impressed especially since every course had to be covered in just a week. I liked the mix of the lectures, company visits and presentations; all of which were truly enlightening. The leisure program was also extensive, with numerous activities planned for the students. It was great to know more about Austria and to visit the important landmarks. I especially loved going for the hike! The International Summer University program is great, and I am honoured to have been part of it. I have learnt what I would otherwise learn in a semester in just 3 weeks and I find myself applying ot to real life situations. My gratitude to the ISUWU team!

„I spent a wonderful and intensive three weeks in ISU WU!“

Xueru Chen, Zhejiang University, Zhejiang, China
ISUWU curriculum was very professional and interesting, bringing us a comprehensive and diverse understanding of management and business. Global and multicultural learning perspective was quite a challenge for me. ISUWU has prepared a variety of extracurricular activities for us. We enjoyed the beautiful scenery and magnificient architecture of Vienna, and had a wonderful time with friends from various countries. I spent a wonderful and intensive three weeks in ISU WU 2017! With classmates from more than 20 countries, I got a deeper and international understanding of business and management, and also achieved a self-breakthrough.

„I made friends from different continents!“

Jacqueline Kamukuendjanje, University of Stellenbosch, Stellenbosch, South Africa
A very intense and interesting program simplifying complex concepts so that students from different backgrounds and culture can understand and apply. The program enabled me to make friends from different continents, learn about other cultures and experience the beautiful city of Vienna. The program is well organized, the lecturers have deep insight on the subject matter. They are not just giving theory, they give tools for application. In addition, the assistants have servant hearts and always ready to assist.
