Taught in collaboration with The University of Law, who ranked joint 1st for student satisfaction in the UK National Student Survey 2016 and was recently awarded gold status in the Teaching Excellence Framework finding it to be of the highest quality in the UK, these programmes are designed to help postgraduates develop the skills and knowledge needed to pursue a successful career in the international market. Graduates of the MSc will gain in-depth insights into how European businesses work and develop the skills to help companies build international partnerships. Simultaneously, those aiming to work in Germany and across Europe will gain a greater understanding of businesses whilst studying in one of its most important commercial hubs.
Dr Steve Priddy, Dean of GISMA Business School, said, "We are pleased to announce a suite of new postgraduate degrees in Berlin in collaboration with a world-class institution, The University of Law, which is at the heart of GISMA's mission - to offer an internationally recognised academic management education in Germany."
Combining GISMA's modern expertise in marketing and finance with The University of Law's heritage and teaching methods - based on practitioners with professional expertise in the field - students will learn how to approach businesses from a holistic perspective.
"As a unique educational opportunity for students, we believe this will create a new kind of business degree that aims to improve employability and long-term career prospects," added Dr Priddy. "Looking at a wide spectrum of business activities, graduates from the MSc programmes will be well-placed to become competent business leaders comfortable in navigating both the British and European markets in the changing commercial landscape post-Brexit."
Professor Andrea Nollent, Vice-Chancellor and CEO at The University of Law, said, "The common values that we share with GISMA Business School, including our strong commitment to developing innovative ways to help students succeed and achieve their career ambitions, make this collaboration a natural step for us as we expand into new global markets. We look forward to working closely with GISMA Business School to support our students as they embark on their postgraduate studies in Germany."
Reflecting on the collaboration, GISMA Managing Director Dr Thorsten Thiel said, "Germany is an open market with connections to the rest of the world. It is important that future business graduates are educated to a standard where they are comfortable to operate in Germany, across Europe and in businesses globally. In Germany, alongside the support students receive from our well-established careers team, students can apply for a post-study working visa for up to 18 months upon completion of their postgraduate course. This means they can stay and look for a job, whilst immediately applying their newly acquired skills in the German labour market."
