Munich is a burgeoning economic powerhouse, where locals enjoy all the benefits of city life while living in one of Europe’s greenest cities. The population of almost 1.4 million people enjoy a high quality of life in the city, and Munich regularly tops opinion polls of the best places to live in Germany.
The balance between urban and open space is a defining feature of Munich, home to the EU Munich campus. In the city, EU students enjoy state-of-the-art learning facilities as they study, and a varied social life in their free time.
Oktoberfest is of course a huge event in the Munich social calendar, and the proximity of the EU Business School Munich campus to the festivities means that EU students get to experience the festival in a privileged and unique fashion. One should not be fooled into thinking that Munich is dominated by only one event – on the contrary, all year round citizens enjoy countless events.
We use a combination of classroom theory and hands-on experiential learning that draws on both the American business education model and European learning methodologies. EU’s pragmatic approach to business education prepares students for careers in today’s rapidly evolving and globalized business world.
The EU Munich campus in Germany is located in the Theresienhöhe district. This young and vibrant area is expanding according to a strict urban development plan, and combines urban and green areas in an ideal ratio. The number of stunning parks and open spaces is a unique feature of the area and makes the perfect setting for sun-soaked picnics with new friends and fellow students.
The campus is in an exciting and active location, just seconds away from Theresienwiese where the world’s largest fair, Oktoberfest, is held. Each year more than six million people from all over make their way to Munich to enjoy Bavarian food, music and beer. In addition to Oktoberfest, Munich is a hive of activity with innumerable bars, cafes, restaurants, clubs and performers. Some of the especially popular bars in Munich are Hofbräuhaus, Weisses Bräuhaus and The Clubhouse, among many, many others.
The speed at which the district is growing is reflective of the wider economic success of Munich; it is one of Germany’s fastest growing cities and plays host to numerous international companies.
