Daryl Castro from Colombia - MA in Strategic Marketing

“When I was looking at options, BSBI was really friendly from the very first contact and they really lead me throughout the whole process, every time with kindness. They were really thoughtful, so I really liked that kind of contact when I was interacting and looking for options, so I decided to go for BSBI.”

Seksaf Mohammed Rafifk from Algeria - Global MBA Programme

"Choosing to study a master’s in business was just a matter of time. I realised when I was working as a sales engineer, I needed to know more about the markets, about business, how to manage team and how to manage budget under certain conditions. I found all of that and even more by choosing the Global MBA at BSBI.”

Saksham Grag from India - BA in Economics and Business Administration

“I decided to study at BSBI because, firstly, it is in the centre of Berlin and secondly, it’s really a good college with good facilities. The teachers are really helpful and I heard from many people and from Global MBA students that BSBI is really good and the fee structure of BSBI is also really reasonable.”
