BA in International Relations and Diplomacy

My interest in environmental sustainability all started here at Schiller when I took a course on sustainable development with Professor Regis Maubrey. As part of the course, each student was assigned a research project. In my case, environmental issues affecting the Sahel region. I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of the course, and have since decided I would like to work in the field of environmental sustainability. At Schiller, you know you are learning from Professors with rich backgrounds in their domains. Prof Maubrey’s extensive experience in teaching as well as working and setting up NGOS in the African continent reassured me that I too could attain great things. (more…)

Student Success

"My four years spent at Schiller International University obtaining a bachelor's degree in International Business, taught me how to pursue my dreams while constantly challenging and preparing me to work and live in a multicultural environment. It opened my eyes to a world of travel and exposed me to a constant diversity of nationalities, building my character in and outside of the classroom. I am thankful for my invaluable experience at SIU and for all the amazing people I met from around the world"

"Studying at Schiller International University's Paris Campus is a smart way to increase one's cross-cultural literacy in the heart of Franco-phonic culture, while learning in a friendly, welcoming and supportive atmosphere. It is not only about what you learn from textbooks, but experiencing the splendour of starting on a new page by travelling and soaking oneself in a foreign culture, in the quest to gain a valuable understanding of the ever dynamic globalised world we live in."

"Rich. Diverse. Unique. These are just a few of the words that I would use to describe my time at Schiller. Nothing can be compared to the enriching experience of being in a classroom and exchanging ideas with people from all continents. The classes left a lasting impression on what cultural diversity means to me and I am exponentially thankful to Schiller for that opportunity."
