What our students from Ukraine say...


Student Ambassador

Nationality: UKRAINIAN
Languages: Russian, Ukrainian, English, German

I am a graduate GSM-Master student at the School of Management in Steyr. I have made my exchange semester in the USA in the framework of an MBA Double-Degree Programme. Also, it's already my 3d year of life in Austria. So, I know how important support is when one moves to a new country. And I am here to provide the newcomers and prospective students with help and pieces of advice throughout your application process and further preparation. I like travelling, meeting new people, cultures and stepping out of the comfort zone. I practice yoga and cook a lot (as most of the international students here). If you feel like becoming a part of the Austrian student community, don't hesitate to ask me any questions. I will be happy to help!
