Graduate BSc Management 2020



I’m from Guatemala, a small beautiful country in Central America. Interacting with people from all around the world is something that I enjoy very much due to my big interest in different cultures. I speak Spanish, English, German and I’m currently learning Portuguese. I lived in Tennessee, USA for a while. By the time I started studying at KLU, I had been living in Hamburg and Kiel for almost three years. I studied at the Studienkolleg Hamburg for one year and then decided to start at KLU for its great reputation among business universities in Europe.

Why I wanted to study in Germany:

There’s no financially stronger country in Europe and a degree in Germany, especially from a university like KLU is highly recognized all around the world.

Why I wanted to study at KLU:

Because of its international recognition, its more practical teaching methods and for its beautiful campus, come on, its awesome!

This is what Andrés is up to:

I enjoy sports very much, particularly soccer, American football and squash. You can often find me out with my classmates and friends, having a couple of beers and dancing. I also like movies and series of all kinds.

These are the subjects which Andrés can also help you on:

  • Accommodation
  • TOEFL preparation
  • Spanish
  • English
  • Advanced Excel
  • Management Fundamentals

Andrés ’s tips for Hamburg:

Don’t be shy, people seem to be cold at first, but they’re actually not when you get to know them. Go to the Fischmarkt after going out on Saturday night. Enjoy the summer and endure the winter.

What is one piece of advice Andrés would give to a prospective student interested in KLU?

Be as outgoing as you can! Get to know everybody and enjoy all the benefits KLU has to offer.

What Andrés hopes to do after graduation:

Either study a Master’s Degree at KLU or study another Bachelor’s in Performing Arts. Weird, I know.

What Andrés likes the most about KLU:

The people (students, teachers and staff), the university’s teaching philosophy and the campus.
