Meet Vina, Bachelor Student at Paris Campus

Meet Vina, our Bachelor student at Paris campus and see what she has to say in our interview.

 

Can you remember what your original motivation was for obtaining your degree? 
What motivated me to obtain a degree in international relations and diplomacy was the fact that there is more to international relations than just politics. It focuses on a broad range of topics such as environmental issues, preservation of cultural property, technology and so on. Continue reading “Meet Vina, Bachelor Student at Paris Campus”

Amazon Fulfillment Tour

At Schiller International University we want students to have the opportunity not only to develop their skills but also to take a look at what the corporate world looks like and also, what is waiting for them once they finish their degree. That is why our Professors frequently invest their time in finding opportunities to visit the facilities of some of the leading companies in the world.

 

Last week our students had the opportunity to visit Amazon Fulfillment Center in Madrid. Here, they saw firsthand all the logistics happening inside this leading tech giant. The visit was scheduled by our Professor Edgar Barroso, as part of the activities that our students have throughout the semester. It sure helped enrich the University experience and encouraged our students to further their knowledge in pursuit of their goals.

Amazon provides global online shopping from the world’s largest selection of books, magazines, music, electronics, computers, software, and much more. This tech giant whose slogan is “And you’re done”, has been a global leader for internet sales all over the world and is considered the most valuable retail brand.

Unesco Hobinirina
Congratulations to Paris campus MA IRD student, Hobinirina Razafindramaka, winner of today’s #IPDCtalks student video contest.
She impressed an international panel of judges by answering “Powering Sustainable Development with Access to Information”:
  • Why is access to information the critical currency for us to survive in the modern world?
  • What should duty-bearers (governments, the media, and international organizations) play to protect and promote the right to access to information?
  • And what kind of impact does it have for a sustainable future, e.g. with regards to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals?”

    Hobinirina’s winning video will be shared on the official UNESCO social media channels which will reach millions of people worldwide.

    Bravo Hobinirina!

Student Council Elections at SIU Madrid

Students at SIU’s Madrid campus took part in the student council elections this week. The SIU student council serves as a voice for the student body and works closely with the university administration. Our candidates worked hard and campaigned in order to gain the support from their peers.

Congratulations to our new student body President, Gabriela Albertini. Gabriela is a fourth year International Business major. Her main message throughout her campaign was, “I really want to make the best of our budget and plan as many trips and activities as possible. Let me make my last year at Schiller your best one!” We are looking forward to a great year here at Schiller Madrid with Gabriela at the helm!
