My name is Hazha and I am 34years old coming from Iraq. I have master degree in Software engineering and I worked for more than 5years as drilling engineer in Iraq in in Halliburton company in the rigsites. And I want to study master degree in international business management and I do not know where to go or how to apply for such thing and tow months ago I sent my certificates to Dusseldorf to be equalized but till now I got no answers. What is your advice or from where should I start to get a chance to study?
here is a link with the most important informations you need to start studying in NRW:
and this is a list of all Universities and their direct contacts regarding questions like yours:
I would suggest you find out which University offers the studies you'd like to do and then just call the responsable person. I am sure they can help you!
Let me know if you had success!
It´s good that you have already sent off your certificates to be equated! This is definitely essential to being able to apply to uni programs. Two months is I think not too long when considering all of the certificates that are currently being processed... but where did you send everything to? Maybe there is a contact that can check on the status of your certificates.
In terms of applying to Masters programs, I think that there will be easy to find International Business Management programs in English. Is that what you would be looking for, or should I also look for programs in German? For general information on the process, check out:
Hi Hazha, I think it is great you want to continue studying. Probably, it would be a good idea, before you apply, to get some kind of coaching to choose the subject, and discuss your expectatives. An MA in Bussines does not mean anymore what it meant 10 years ago, people who get the most out of it are those who already are working within the area and have already some experience, but I grant you I do not have all details, and that is why I think it would be advisable to find some support to make the decision because it takes years and lots of financial and other efforts (even if you would get a grant), especially because you already have a Master, even though not in this subject, but a great Subject nevertheless that could open plenty of doors for you. I think caritas offers councelling, and there must be other providers, public and private. I could try to find out more if you would be interested.
