Good university

I am an exchange student in MBS and the truth is that for the moment is fulfilling my expectations very positively. Although I expected the highest level of the bachelor’s degree, I like how classes are taught. The teachers are very close and help you in what you ask. Especially the teacher of French Culture. I recommend this university.

Campus: Montpellier

Another common compliment is the diversity on campus. Students tell us of the high number of exchange students at the institute and how good a college MBS is in which to be an exchange student, especially this EDUopinions commenter;

The facilities are very good and new. Teachers are well trained and involved with students. Good treatment and attention to international students who come from exchange. They hold events for students in a way that facilitates integration.

Campus: Montpellier

MBS students on EDUopinions also add that at the school you do not learn solely academic material, but also cultural, and there is even mention of a French Culture teacher. The emphasis and importance MBS places on culture and life outside of study is evident – both in promoting the French culture of the university’s home country, and the cultures of visiting exchange students.

Leading on from this point, MBS’ EDUopinions comments also tell us of the organised activities for exchange students ‘almost every week’ which must certainly be a great help to students who are away from home and may be in a country unfamiliar to them.

Besides there are many exchange people, which allows you to know other cultures and meet new people because different activities for exchange students are organized almost every week.

We also see in a comment posted above that there are events held for student integration in general. Universities really are a community, and MBS definitely seems to care a great deal that their community functions well and happily together.

Other MBS positives according to its students include the ‘wide variety’ of programmes of study available, and the school’s facilities, as mentioned by this student and EDUopinions commenter;

GBS appears to be a place where its students feel safe, happy, welcome, and content.


What Students Have Noted About GBS

Impressively, there are no truly negative comments about GBS on EDUopinions.

Students have mentioned, however, that you need to do a lot of work of your own accord if you wish to be successful at this business school.

In GBS you need to do a lot of self education. Professors giving a lot of homework and additional reading, which you need to do yourself. No one is checking if you doing extra reading or no, if you did your homework yourself or cheated, so it’s all in your desire to learn something.
