The MIAS International Summer School gives many undergraduates their first taste of studying and living abroad. Over the three weeks, friendships, networks and experiences are created that reach beyond borders, cultures and particular professional interests.
Many overseas students use the MIAS International Summer School as a convenient starting point for their own exploration of Europe over the rest of their holidays. Students thus become prepared to achieve their personal internationalization objectives, such as taking part in exchange programs, internships, full degree studies abroad and working for international companies.
