Zurich, Vienna, Berlin or Vaduz: better study where people know you personally

On the campus of the University of Liechtenstein you meet people from all over the world. Currently, young people from 61 countries live and work here. What makes studying at this young university so appealing? We asked students and graduates this question.

220620_Blog_Darum Unili_Szilard.jpegSzilárd Molnár, a Master's student in Finance from Vienna, was drawn to the University of Liechtenstein: "When choosing a university for my Master's degree, two points were particularly important to me - the opportunity to individualize the content and a personal atmosphere during the studies. The University of Liechtenstein offers an excellent supervision ratio, which is usually more familiar from private universities. I can work directly with our professors in the Master Finance and they take on an important role as mentors. In addition to the theoretical modules, we also have joint projects time and again and maintain a lively exchange with local finance companies. This results in many opportunities for collaboration and networking with potential future employers."

On the road to success with the right university

220620_Blog_Darum Unili_Konrad.jpegKonrad Wurst studied Business Administration (Betriebswirtschaftslehre) at the University of Liechtenstein and received an award from Hilti for his Bachelor's thesis. When choosing the right university, the Business Administration graduate recommends not seeing location as the most important criterion. "Many, for example, decide on Vienna first and only then look at what they want to study there. It's more important to at least begin to define your goals and then see where you can complete the right degree programme. The business location in the Rhine Valley in particular offers the best career prospects, and when it comes to choosing the right university, the University of Liechtenstein is certainly a top address - both for the Bachelor's degree and for a specialisation in the Master's degree."

In the blog "On the road to success with the right university" Konrad emphasizes why the personal and appreciative environment at the University of Liechtenstein was so important to him

Graduates welcome: Banks on talent show

Blog_220221_VP_Amina.jpegEspecially in the Liechtenstein financial center, the door is wide open for well-educated students, reports Amina Sherif. The 22-year-old is currently earning ECTS in the Master in Finance at the University of Liechtenstein and at the same time gaining practical experience as a junior product manager in one of the graduate programs of a Liechtenstein bank. "There are three different programs for students and graduates there. For Bachelor's students there is the Bachelor Graduate Trainee Program, and for Master's graduates there is the "Career Start" trainee program.

There is also the "Support Model" for working students who want to gain practical experience part-time alongside their master's degree. I opted for the latter in order to gain practical experience in banking while I was still studying for my master's degree in finance."

"The family atmosphere was important to me"

220620_Blog_Darum Unili_Senti.jpegArchitect Rebecca Senti didn't have to travel far to get to the University of Liechtenstein, because she is at home in Mauren. "What convinced me about the University of Liechtenstein was the family atmosphere," says the graduate, explaining her decision. "At the campus in Vaduz, you get to know your lecturers personally.

Because there are only about 700 students at the University of Liechtenstein, anyone can really do a semester abroad. That was very important to me when I decided to stay in the country." Another big plus for her are the pro bono projects: "They offer architecture students the opportunity to initiate, plan and implement a project of their choice."

Rebecca Senti successfully completed her bachelor's degree in architecture. Read in the blog "Die familiäre Atmosphäre war mir wichtig" how she is now conquering the world from the University of Liechtenstein
