MBA in Luxembourg
Considering Luxembourg as your study destination?
Students who come to study an MBA in Luxembourg will discover one of the most visually-appealing countries in the world, with 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 well used to punching above its weight in terms of GDP, quality of life and average wage. It also could not have a much better location from which to explore the rest of Europe, sharing land borders with France, Germany & Belgium and 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, with many more who work here but live abroad, making it one of Europe’s most multicultural nations. That 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. Is it time you started seriously considering this hidden gem of a study destination?
