Thrive in an industry where no two days are the same

Hone your managerial skills and gain the strategic marketing tools needed to stand out in today’s increasingly competitive marketplace. Awarded by Grenoble Ecole de Management, this course will prepare you for a number of dynamic roles within the ever-changing field of marketing.  

Once described as “poor but sexy” by its own mayor, Germany’s capital of Berlin has seen a huge resurgence in popularity over the last 30 years, whilst maintaining its cool-status and affordable price tag. The largest city in the EU is now considered the start-up capital of Europe, but is also home to some of the largest national and international companies in Germany, making Berlin a popular destination for students looking to live and work in Germany after their studies. However, Berlin is also famous for its freizeit (free-time) options – whether it is an all-night party at a club, exploring historical sights, or relaxing at one of the city’s 43 lakes or 2,500 public parks; Berlin residents have the best options for work and play.
