"WHU is the bridge between me and various cultures around the world. love travelling and exposing myself to different cultures. I managed to meet many exchange students from different countries from my first day in Vallendar. The many initiatives by the IRO, from Tauschie Tuesdays to Oktoberfest in Munich, helped me to not only meet people of diverse culture, but also helped me to forge friendships that will last a lifetime. The students at WHU truly understand the meaning of “work hard, play hard” and I assure you that you will not be bored at WHU!"
Jessy Kang –

"Someone I met through WHU, now a good friend, mentioned how exchange is like the movie "The Breakfast Club" - bringing together people from so many different backgrounds who may have never met or talked otherwise. Despite the differences, we're all more or less a bit of each other, and now we can all say we were part of "The Tauschie Club". What a life changing experience with such a close-knit community in a beautiful town, country, and university - I couldn't have imagined exchange in any other way."

"The WHU MBA Exchange Program has been one of the best experience of my life. It has given me the excellent opportunity to be taught by wide experience and international level professors and also be among so many talent multinational and multicultural cohorts. Moreover, since WHU Campus Düsseldorf is located in the most populated lively city in Germany, it has its enjoyable ambiance to see things around and lots of activities to do. Having wide travel opportunities is also great. I have visited over 15 amazing European countries while studying there.

"Studying abroad through WHU was an amazing experience. WHU Düsseldorf campus is a small, collaborative environment that really gives you the opportunity to know most of the current students, staff, and faculty. It is also centrally located which makes it the perfect hub to travel all around Europe. During my stay I visited Berlin, Munich, Amsterdam, London, Dublin, Prague, Budapest, and several cities in France. In short, if I had to do it all again, I would certainly pick Düsseldorf for my study abroad location and would highly recommend it."
