Student Life at WHU
Although WHU students face a demanding and tightly packed program of studies, student life is by no means neglected. Many students take the time to enrich their university life by engaging in one of countless student clubs. Be it sports, music, art, theater, the stock exchange, or social commitments, campus life offers something for everybody. The enthusiasm with which students pursue common goals and make dreams and ideas a reality is a manifestation of WHU spirit that is so highly valued by all university groups.

For the sessions spent in Germany, WHU offers various furnished housing options ranging from a single room to an apartment. For information on housing options available for international students, visit the Housing Information website.
The Career Center at WHU, ranked best worldwide in four consecutive Financial Times Master in Management rankings, will provide a full range of career development services, including workshops on job search skills and techniques as well as access to the alumni network and opportunities for students to meet employers.
Additionally, graduates will be eligible to work in Germany and have 18 months after graduation to find a job until their residence permit expires. Due to the freedom of movement within the EU, this also gives graduates access to most other countries of the EU.
During the summer semesters, students will be able to meet with a career advisor from Olin’s Weston Career Center.
