It has been nearly four years since I graduated from the University of Michigan with my Bachelor of Business Administration degree and a lot has transpired since then. Here is a quick recap of the last four years:
In 2019, I am headed back to school. In less than two months, I will be packing up and moving to Germany to begin graduate school. I am moving to Magdeburg, the capital of Saxony-Anhalt, which is located on the Elbe river. Situated in the western part of former East Germany, it is quite centrally located and serves as the connection point between the east and west and north and south. The population is around 240,000 and the city itself is slightly smaller than Cincinnati, Ohio.
Continuing on from my bachelor's, I will be getting my master's in International Management, Marketing, and Entrepreneurship from Otto von Guericke Universität Magdeburg (in English, Otto von Guericke University or University of Magdeburg). The program is strictly taught in English (with some electives available in German), but I am still learning German since I will be living there for at least the next two years.
Two years ago, I fell in love with Germany (and Europe in general), so I am excited to head back over to the other side of the pond. I look forward to my studies, learning more about Germany, exploring Europe, and of course, eating a lot of currywurst and doner kebabs.
