Ask alumni – get to know KSE more!













If you are planning to apply to the KSE Master’s programs this year or are still thinking about it, we invite you to talk to our graduates. They will share the insider information about studying at KSE and career prospects for alumni. Write them a message on Facebook and get to know KSE more.

What do our students do? Why do they have very little time and a lot of deadlines? How many cups of coffee do they drink every day? Is there a life after KSE? :) You can get answers on these questions directly from people who went through this path – KSE graduates.

Please note that you have to log in to your Facebook account to write a message.
