Germany: Berlin business school officially launches

Berlin School of Business and Innovation (BSBI) officially opened yesterday.
The school actually launched earlier in the year offering bachelor’s and master’s degrees in business administration; tourism, hospitality and events management; marketing; finance, and fashion retail and luxury management.

The school welcomed its second intake in October, with more than 100 new students from India, Mexico, Pakistan, Italy, France, Greece, Jordan, China, Azerbaijan, Lebanon, Nepal, Tadzhikistan. The school says it is expanding its portfolio of courses and collaborations.

The event was hosted by BSBI associate dean Alexander Zeitelhack, who said: “Our mission is to educate, train and integrate students from all over the world into the German culture and economic landscape. Working with international educational and commercial partners, we aim to grow our presence in the higher education sector in Germany. This will benefit our students, who will have access to many career opportunities, and support industry in the country by generating employment.”

A ribbon-cutting ceremony marked the official opening, led by BSBI patrons Prince Paul Philippe Hohenzollern and Princess Lia of Romania. Adding to the obscure royal line-up was honorary patron Princess Madeleine of Bentheim and Steinfurt - wherever that might be.

BSBI says it combines traditional classroom-based teaching and blended learning. The school also works with several partners to provide students with dedicated services, learning resources outside the classroom and career opportunities.

Sagi Hartov, BSBI co-founder and chairman said: “Working with leading companies we ensure every aspect of students’ experience is taken care of, so they can truly focus on their studies. Most importantly, our partners provide guest speakers, visits and internships to give our students a practical understanding of how the concepts they are learning apply to real businesses.”
