“At the University of Bordeaux, the course taught there were more practical and
less theoretical. By which we had much more exposure about the current
environment of the market. And also we could work upon the problems as a live
case study by which we learnt in and outs of the market place as a whole.”
|Ansgar Taschinski , University of Basel, Switzerland|
Studying at JGU was an amazing and interesting experience. The professors were
always doing their best to make sure all students could follow the lectures and
they supported the students in any way possible.
The lectures themselves were quite interactive and required active participation
instead of only passive listening skills which I enjoyed a lot. Not only the
professors but also the students were welcoming and always offered their help.
After a while I felt like becoming a part of the “JGU family”. I am glad I got the
opportunity to study at JGU for one semester and can wholeheartedly
|Jennifer Ehrenström, University of Stockholm, Sweden|
“My exchange at JGU has truly been one of the most amazing experiences in my
entire life. I have since the beginning been so warmly welcomed by staff and
students and always felt extremely at home not only to JGU, but in India. The
professors at JGU have been some of the best tutors I have ever had during my
University years and I am truly grateful that I was able to be under their
guidance. However, what I will cherish the most from JGU is the friends I have
made and all the memories we have created together. A special thank you is
really in place to the IAGI Office at JGU who have always assisted me and
supported me whenever it was needed. I will forever cherish my time at JGU!”
