“My name is Daniel God’s Will, I am in the Business and Management Studies program and this is my BiTS Story.”
How did you come to BiTS?
My path leads from Nigeria to Berlin via Kuwait. I had studied Business Management in the Arabian Peninsula, but then I wanted to go to Europe. By researching online I found BiTS and was immediately very impressed by what they offered. After the application process in September 2015, I began my studies in October at BiTS in Berlin. Business and Management Studies is the most traditional offering at the university, but it gave me exactly the content that I had envisioned.
What were some key moments that have made you who you are?
I think that I looked at many things at my father’s business and I would like very much to support him in his work. He has an IT company in Kuwait in which I would also like to work after my graduation. I’m here to learn how you run a company and change your ideas into concepts and strategies. BiTS, as a university, is perfect for this! The big focus on the practical is ideally suited to what I want to obtain from an innovative course of studies.
Learning without boundaries. What does that have to do with you at BiTS?
It might sound trite but I’m the first Nigerian here on campus, and I think it’s fantastic to have this opportunity! When I was looking for a suitable university, it wasn’t easy to find a package that was entirely suitable. Because it is so very international, BiTS is more open than other universities and it has been very easy for me to fit in here. To me, this is thinking without boundaries. I like it very much!
Was did BiTS do for you in particular?
I was received here very warmly. The students and professors always lend a sympathetic ear and support you whenever they can. The vibe between the professors and students is really something special. I haven’t experienced anything like this before. After the lectures we often stay behind sitting around together discussing our work, but we also spend evenings together when we play games and have fun together. It’s really exceptional! Also, there is great cohesion among the students and I have already been entrusted with the honor of representing the students on the board of examiners.
