The study abroad trip was absolutely phenomenal. I have studied abroad short-term on two other occasions and this was by far the best experience. The itinerary really allowed us to get the most out of the trip, both culturally and academically. We were able to go on many in-depth visits with companies. (Alyssa, MBA student)

I appreciate the time and energy that was put into creating this study abroad trip. I prefer travel that includes a local touch and having Thomas involved was the key success factor. The cultural events and variety of activities provided a real adventure. I have no words to describe it! (Jeralynn, MBA student)

I just completed a MBA study abroad trip. We met with eight different companies, and each business visit could truly have been considered the highlight of the entire trip. Our host’s preparations were top notch. (Melissa, MBA student)


Since 2012, Dr. Freytag and Steinbeis have delivered four excellent study abroad programs for our MBA students, including meetings with CEOs and other top executives. Students were deeply impressed by the academic, business and cultural content of the programs as well as by the well-organized itineraries. It is a true pleasure to work with this provider. We are looking forward to our program next year. (Dr. Magdalena Paleczny-Zapp, MBA Study Abroad Program Coordinator, Augsburg College, Minneapolis)

The program consisted of a well-organized and very informative series of lectures and events. Each stop was a "mini-MBA course" that provided students with exceptional insights into German business culture and organizations. I highly recommend the program. (William P. Cordeiro, PhD, Dean of Martin Smith Business School, California State University Channel Islands, Camarillo)
