                          As one of Europe’s leading dedicated business
                          schools European University provides world-class
                          education for tomorrow’s leaders. The three-year
                          BBA course strikes the right balance between
                          theory and practice and is instrumental in
                          equipping future managers with the skills and
                          training demanded by today’s multinational
                          corporations. Further advantage is the ability to
                          benefit from the cross-cultural experience by
                          undertaking studies in more than one country.
                          After graduating from European University in 1997 I gained employment in KPMG as an international
                          tax consultant. My career now spans over eight years having also worked in companies such as
                          Ernst & Young and BP, where I currently hold the post of Indirect Tax Manager in Melbourne, Australia.

                            at the moment so I won't make it for the seminar.
                            I am still doing some preliminary research on
                            PHD programs and plan to start within 1-3 years,
                            depending on my schedule.
                            I have looked at your website and I saw Ashwin
                            Mehra’s Business Card on your Alumni list and it was good to email him and get back in touch.
                            Please do also include my Business Card on the website. I attached my photo. We have some
                            alumni gatherings in Indonesia sometimes as well; my EU alumni friends are working at Pan
                            Pacific Hotel, World Bank and Makro.
                            In the meantime, I wish you all the best and much success.
                            Yours sincerely,

Marcos Komodromos
Bachelor of Arts in Communication & Public Relations – 2000
Master of Business Administration – 2001
Before I decided to which University I would apply for my Bachelor and Master
Degree, I did very good research, and decided to join European University in Athens
• It is the best place to be and the best University to join;
• The lecturers were more than happy to assist us with whatever we might need;
• The lecturers deliver high quality teaching in this competitive business environment;
• And above all European University is well recognised all over the world, giving
    us the opportunity to be hired by well established organizations!
I graduated in 2001 and achieved the ‘Master of Business Administration’. I can
say that I combined and enjoyed the “partying animal life” and the educational life
in Athens. During the 4 years that I was at European University Athens Campus, I
received guidance and help from both lecturers and management, and I would like to thank Mrs. Marianna Chrysopoulou,
the most who really helped me with a lot of things that I was concerned with at that time. She was always there for me and
I really appreciate that.
After I completed my MBA, I had a proposal from Masterfoods International where I worked as a Marketing Manager for 3
years, and I was responsible for the markets of Cyprus, Malta and Israel. Since August 2004, I have been working as a
Business Unit Manager at Demstar Education; responsible for organizing and training employees working in any kind of
organization. Since September 2001, I have also been working as a lecturer of PR, Marketing and Management in a private
University in Cyprus.
One of my hobbies is Radio & TV, and I am also a daily radio producer at Super FM radio in Cyprus. You can listen LIVE to
my radio programme every night 23.00 – 24.00 via Internet also . I also like to travel a lot and learn
new cultures.
European University is really a MUST for everyone that wants to have a qualitative career in the future.
European University thanks for all again!!!

                        Dear Dr. Craen,
                        I thank you again for the great
                        opportunity my son Joost had at
                        European University. Thanks to
Roxana                  excellent academic references by
Chang                   EU professors, Joost was admitted
                        to the University of Amsterdam in
                        September 2004 into “Master of
                        International Finance” and now he
                        has also been is accepted by the

                            Johnny Kim
                            Johnny Kim graduated with his MBA Summa Cum Laude from EU’s
                            Geneva/Versoix campus in June 2004 receiving the Award of Excellence for
                            the best MBA in Leisure and Tourism Capstone project.
                            Originally from South Korea, he has lived in Switzerland since 1988, running
                            his own company in the tourism market, acting as a business connection
                            between Europe and Korea which included producing a magazine and
                            facilitating exports between Switzerland and Korea, as well as Japan.
                            Immediately after graduating Johnny went to the U.S to participate in an
                            intensive advanced management course arranged between the National
                            University of Singapore and Stanford University, California. The month-long
                            course comprised 49 participants of both high standing within their respective
                            companies and/or studying at a high level of business education. Classes
                            took place between 8am to 6pm daily, and Johnny says while it was exhausting,
                            it was also extremely stimulating and inspirational.
                            Johnny is now considering doing a Doctorate in Business Management with
                            a concurrent degree in Management of Technology on weekends.
                            Johnny says that his most exciting moments are when the theory he learns
                            through his studies matches so closely and pragmatically to his real-life
                            business practices. The circle of study and practical application feeds his
                            enthusiasm to pursue both with a real passion.

Beste Professor Craen,
You may remember that almost exactly 10 years ago I graduated from the BBA
programme here in Montreux. 10 years later I am here on an Emerging Leaders
programme of KPMG which intends to prepare me for partnership in this firm.
I wanted to share this moment with you as – of course – without European University
– I would not now be here.
Met vriendelijke groot,

                    I am writing you, to thank you first of all for the great time at the
                    European University and for the excellent benefits that I derived
                    from the program. I am proud to announce that the company I
                    established in 2004 has developed quite successfully, so
                    successfully that it is now a full-time-job, from which I can live.
                    Throughout the last six months, I have established three joint
                    ventures with my company, which keep me extremely busy at
                    the moment.
