I finished my bachelor studies in Business Informatics department in Epoka University. I would say that it is the best university in Albania which offered me great opportunities to enrich my academic knowledge and consolidate my programming capabilities.
After graduation in June 2016, I aimed to start my master studies in Germany. Once I started to research for the best universities in Germany for Business Informatics, the results revealed Mannheim University which was considered as Harvard of Germany. There were some needed qualifications to be enrolled as a student there.
What really helped me to be accepted was that I had got a bachelor degree all taught in English and high academic results. Moreover, I had also previous experiences in programming skills where some of them were held in Epoka University as being a mentor in programming subjects for freshmen students. Besides that, I had experience in project management by holding managerial positions in student clubs and in a non- profit organization in Tirana. In overall good and valuable references are a crucial factor to be part of Mannheim University.
I am having a very good experience here. Student campus is a huge one offering different ways how to pass your free time. University offers many huge libraries in different locations which have various design in order to allow every student to choose the one that he/she feels more comfortable. In addition there are many possibilities to find a job to support the cost of living. The representatives of state job agencies have said that if anyone has previous experience in programming for example, you have high chances to find a job in companies in which you are paid pretty well.
In conclusion, I suggest to everyone who is interested to continue his/her studies abroad in Management or Business Informatics courses to come to Mannheim to open the doors of success in your future career.
