Luxembourg

Luxembourg's cosmopolitanism permeates the country’s higher education institutions, which have a naturally international outlook and lofty ambitions.

Students who come to pursue an MBA in Luxembourg will discover one of the most visually appealing countries in the world, with the capital, Luxembourg City, famed for its medieval castles, grand cathedrals, and glorious architecture. Despite its small size, Luxembourg is one of the most unique countries in Europe and punches above its weight in terms of GDP, quality of life, and average wage. It is also in a perfect position from which to explore the rest of Europe, sharing land borders with France, Germany, and Belgium, lying within easy reach of all Europe’s major capital cities.

Luxembourg is well-accustomed to welcoming international citizens. Around half of the total population is foreign-born. Many people who work in Luxembourg live abroad, making it one of Europe’s most multicultural nations. This cosmopolitanism also permeates the country’s higher education institutions, which – despite being few in number – have a naturally international outlook and lofty ambitions. English-language programs are widespread, cultural exchanges with partner schools throughout the world are common, and work opportunities at some of the country’s major employers – including Amazon, the European Parliament, and BNP Paribas – are a logical post-graduation route for those studying in Luxembourg.
