CAMPUS:
International students can choose in fall if they want to study in Dortmund, Frankfurt, Munich or inHamburg. You can also have a look at our website in English where you can find a video of each campus (www.ism.de > click on the English flag > click on “Campuses” and select one).

Campus Dortmund (available in fall and/or spring): The Dortmund Campus was founded in 1990 in the Dortmund Technology Park and is the largest of the ISM campuses. Its modern buildings are infused with natural light and welcome the more than 800 students who meet here daily. In addition to state-of-the-art teaching facilities, the campus features numerous group work rooms, a spacious library, an Internet room, a chill-out area and the ISM cafeteria.
Located 15 minutes away from the city center, students at the Dortmund Campus are not as centrally located as those in Frankfurt, Munich and Hamburg. However, the proximity to the Technical University of Dortmund (TU) guarantees a dynamic student atmosphere. The many renowned companies located in the Rhine-Ruhr area ensure ample opportunities for internships and entry positions. As such, ISM students have the chance to gain practical experience at companies such as Peek & Cloppenburg, ThyssenKrupp, Bertelsmann, E.ON, Dr. Oetker, Henkel and the advertising agency Grey. ISM also organizes case study conferences where students can work on concrete tasks for companies such as L’Oréal, Rewe, Metro and Douglas as well as for PriceWaterhouseCoopers (PWC) and Accenture, all of whom attend conferences at the Dortmund Campus.
Campus Frankfurt (available in fall or spring): The ISM Campus in Frankfurt / Main can be found in the lively district of Sachsenhausen, next to the South Railway Station (Südbahnhof) and only two stations from the city center.
The campus was founded in 2007 and is home to about 320 Bachelor students currently preparing for future management careers. The Master’s programs International Transport & Logistics and International Management are also offered here. The personal atmosphere of the ISM is immediately apparent on the Sachsenhausen campus. ISM students know each other from small study groups, from ISM student working groups or from socializing at ISM parties. The Frankfurt Campus is located in the Renaissance-Hause, a 3,600 square meter stucco and natural stone building full of art with state-of-the-art teaching facilities, a large library and a rooftop terrace that offers an amazing view of the Frankfurt skyline. Students meet in the neighboring cafés during lunch breaks and between lectures. Frankfurt has a lot to offer in terms of internships and business projects. In addition to financial institutions such as the European Central Bank and the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, many big corporations such as Nestlé and Ferrero have their German headquarters here. PriceWaterhouseCoopers and KPMG as well as the international advertising agency Publicis and the tourism company Thomas Cook are also located in and around the city. Excursions to the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ) and major trade fairs are an integral part of campus life.
Campus Munich (available in fall): The ISM Campus Munich was founded in September 2009 in the Munich district of Karlshöfen. Located within minutes from the city center, it is easily accessible by public transportation. Lectures take place in a modern building with well-equipped, state-of-the-art seminar rooms. Students have access to their own library which is stocked with all the standard literature necessary for their studies. Intensive contact between the ISM students themselves and their lecturers is fostered through small working groups as well as through the many events and activities.
A strong practical relevance is ensured through the proximity of many well-known companies. Future managers are offered a tremendous amount of opportunities thanks to workshops, business lectures, internships and entry positions following the completion of their studies. In addition to media and publishing companies such as, for example, ProSiebenSat1, the C.H. Beck Verlag and Sony Music, Munich has a dynamic tourism industry with companies such as FTI Frosch Touristik GmbH. The city is also home to many international trade fairs. Not to be forgotten are the two big names in the automobile industry: BMW and Audi in the city of Ingolstadt.
Campus Hamburg (available in fall): Studying in the metropole of Hamburg – this exciting perspective is now possible at the new ISM campus in the Hanseatic city. At its central location on the Brooktorkai 22 in the Harbor City, students are prepared for future management positions in international and practically oriented courses of study. Lectures take place in bright, calming rooms well-equipped with the latest technology. A particular highlight on campus is the spacious inner courtyard offering students an ideal place to relax, study or chat. A library, internet room, cafeteria and quiet meeting areas complete the overall picture. The city of Hamburg itself offers ISM students promising prospects with regards to career perspectives. The Hanseatic city is one of Germany’s key economic locations with numerous international companies and provides students with a broad range of internship opportunities in big name companies, as well as business projects and entry positions after graduation.
Big companies in Hamburg include a number of maritime companies as wells as the Airbus S.A.S., Philips Deutschland GmbH and the Beiersdorf AG. The bank industry has also experienced steady growth, many of whom have their headquarters in Hamburg. For example, the M.M. Warburg & Co., the Berenberg Bank and the DONNER & REUSCHEL, a private bank dating back to 1798 and belonging to the SIGNAL IDUNA Group. Moreover, Hamburg is home to many logistics and tourism companies who play an important role in Germany’s economy. Last, but not least, Hamburg is a hub for advertising and media agencies such as the German news magazine "Der Spiegel" which neighbours the ISM Campus. The German popular magazine "stern" and the newspaper "Die Zeit" are also produced in Hamburg.

Información sobre reconocimiento

Idiomas

Nivel práctico necesario para llevar una vida normal.

Dentro de la facultad te puedes defender perfectamente con inglés medio-alto. Después, una vez que haces vida fuera de ella, sería conveniente saber algo de alemán, pero tampoco es un gran problema, ya que ahí casi todo el mundo sabe inglés.

Vida Universitaria

Alojamiento

Opciones de alojamiento (residencias, pisos, zonas recomendadas). Páginas web o direcciones de utilidad. Otros consejos

El alojamiento fue por agencia. La universidad nos dio dos páginas para buscar (pero no me acuerdo ya cuales fueron).

Coste de la vida
Cine, billete de bus, café, cerveza...

El alojamiento algo carillo, a mi por ejemplo el piso me costaba 400 € al mes. Respecto al transporte, compre un ticket para 6 meses y creo que fue sobre unos 180 €, mereció mucho la pena, ya que con él podíamos viajar a otras pequeñas ciudades alrededor de Frankfurt gratis. Ir a tomar café, cerveza y salir es algo más caro que en España y los supermercados igual que aquí.

Vida en el campus

Carné de estudiantes. Deportes. Marcha. Biblioteca. WIFI. Comedores en el campus.

Mi facultad era privada, y por eso, no teníamos las ventajas que otros universitarios de la misma ciudad tenían, como eran los comedores universitarios, deportes, etc. Pero creo que tampoco fuese importante, porque en ISM teníamos de todo.

Seguridad

(indicar si existe algún problema o pautas de comportamiento recomendadas).

En absoluto ningún problema de seguridad, todo lo contrario.

Claves culturales

Diferencias culturales a tener en cuenta (sociales, horarios...).

Alemania es casi igual que España, puede variar el horario de comida, que se hace en general una hora antes que aquí.

Redes sociales útiles


Facebook, así era como nos comunicábamos con todos los estudiantes de la facultad.

Información general



Desplazamientos

Formas de llegar al destino (compañías de avión, rutas, transporte hasta el campus). Medios de transporte aconsejables.

Yo viajé con Ryaner, pero al aeropuerto de Frankfurt-Hann, no el internacional
En el aeropuerto de Frankfurt-Hann, es donde viaja esta aerolínea, pero el inconveniente que tiene, es que esta a una hora y media de la ciudad y el autobús cuesta 15 €.

Información sobre la ciudad

Sitios para visitar, forma de vida, alojamiento, gastronomía, etc.

La ciudad es preciosa, pero sobre todo cuando hace buen tiempo. Está muy bien comunicada, y te puedes mover por todos los sitios en tranvía, metro o bus.
Después, la fiesta genial, aunque al ser una ciudad financiera ves a mucha gente con el traje y tal... pero en general muy bien. Y la comida buenísima, mucha carne y patatas.

Información sobre el país

Sitios para visitar, forma de vida, alojamiento, gastronomía, etc.

Respecto al país, lo mejor de todo el transporte. Es muy fácil y barato moverse por toda Alemania.
http://www.mitfahrgelegenheit.de/
Este enlace es sobre gente que viaja por toda Alemania en coche y si queda sitio libre tu puedes viajar con ellos, por ejemplo viajar de Frankfurt a Köln te puede costar 10 euros.
El alojamiento más o menos igual que en España, y la gastronomía y ocio genial, sobre todo gastronomía y no olvidar probar las deliciosas tartas que hacen.

Consejos, recomendaciones, experiencias

Consejos y recomendaciones varios

Desde que llegue a España se lo digo a todo el mundo: Por favor, viajar y estudiar en el extranjero. Es la mejor experiencia que te puede pasar, conoces a un montón de gente no solo de España sino que de todo el mundo, amplias conocimientos en idiomas y en muchas otras cosas más.También te haces mas fuerte, tienes que buscarte la vida y eso te hace madurar un montón.
Solo podría decir cosas buenas, bueno lo único malo fue la despedida de todos aquellos nuevos amigos que hice.
