What others say about this programme

After successfully passing my A-levels in New Zealand, I was looking for a university in Germany which offered me the possibility to study in the area of Tourism Management with English as the language of instruction. I became aware of the IUBH, due to its interesting combination of outstanding theoretical and practically oriented education with several semesters abroad.
