  • Maya Loacker | Austria - Bolivia

    I chose the degree at MODUL University because it gives me the opportunity to develop core business skills and qualifications focused within the hospitality area. The department aligns to my values because of its broader perspective than the business school stereotype. Being located in the capital of Austria, a vibrant, cosmopolitan and juxtaposition city is an invaluable bonus. Vienna is a multi-faceted city, full of opportunities for students to make the most of it. Finally, one of my favorite things is that the size of the university permits a close relationship between students and staff creating a trusting and engaging atmosphere. It is very appealing and easy to get involved and the perfect opportunity to interact with fellow students, teachers, and staff through clubs, societies, and organized events.
