EBS Bachelor Blogger: Maike

Hey everyone,

My name is Maike and I started my Bachelor studies in General Management at the European Business School in September 2008. I am currently in my second year at EBS where my focus is on business languages, particularly Spanish. In January 2010 I will be going to Spain for my semester abroad.

I came to the EBS from Hamburg, in the north of Germany, where I was born and where I lived for most of my life. However, the last two years of secondary school I spent in a boarding school in England. I was 16 when I went to the small village of Worksop, located at the northern edge of the Sherwood Forrest. It was an interesting experience living in a different country, meeting new people and being without my parents. Over my two years abroad in England I became a lot more independent, learned very much about myself and got to know another culture. One of the most interesting things about being abroad was being a foreigner and a stranger in a new land, specifically entering a new environment, realising how many differences there were and, by the end of my time there, managing to fit in. The year after I graduated from school I took a gap year where I did some internships and was a leader on an interchange with children from Colombia.

Although I have been at the EBS for nearly one and a half years now, it feels like a lot longer because so many things have happened. EBS expects a high level of academic excellence, which takes up a lot of my time, but there are several other non-curricular activities I enjoy as well. I have attended numerous congresses and was able to help organize some of those events, have had many opportunities to meet and listen to the talks of representatives of a number of companies, have participated in competitions, and have enjoyed spending time with new friends.

This was a first brief insight into my life, and I hope I will be able to give you some interesting information about the EBS in general and my study program, as well as a few cultural insights from my own experiences.
