Economics Graduate Bora Beqiri Studying at Bonn University

Bora Beqiri, after successful completion of bachelor studies at Epoka University, continues her master's studies at the University of Bonn in Germany. The University of Bonn is ranked as one of the 100 best universities in the world and also one of the best universities in Germany in Economics. Admission to this program is very competitive, with students applying to the University of Bonn from approximately 140 countries around the world. The University of Bonn offers international students a wide range of education and training possibilities, in a high quality economic region and comfortable environment for life and living.

Admission to the University of Bonn for Bora has been a merit of achievements and experience at Epoka University. Bora is very grateful to Epoka University and also to all the academic staff for the help and opportunities offered during her studies and also after her graduation. During her bachelor studies Bora completed internships in a number of companies including ALBtelekom and Vodafone Albania. Bora has also completed an internship at a private accounting company and has participated in many workshops, open forums, seminars and conferences organized by Epoka University.

Bora noted that studying abroad poses numerous new challenges in comparison to undergraduate studies in Albania. The greatest challenges are not academic, but rather have to do with adapting to a new way of life. For example, the education system and also living in Germany have many formalities and bureaucracies which initially create many problems for new students. One of the greatest difficulties for an international student in Germany is finding a place to stay because the demand is very high. For instance, because of the challenge of finding living quarters, Bora recommends all international students who are planning to continue their studies in Germany to search for accommodation at least a month before starting their studies.

The Master program in Economics in which Bora is advancing her studies prepares students for challenging jobs in the economic environment and provides students with the skills needed to succeed in an increasingly international job market. It also serves as excellent preparation for a Ph.D. program meeting highest international standards. The Master program serves as an excellent preparation for further graduate studies with the goal of writing a doctoral thesis meeting highest international standards.

Bora thinks that every student of Epoka University who studies and works hard has many open doors not only in the universities in Germany but in all universities of the world. Epoka University students are also very academically prepared, which makes them equal with any other student from different countries of the world.
