A key feature of the MEG programme is the geographic diversity of its students: some 87 different nations across six continents are represented in current MEG students and alumni. This remarkable cosmopolitanism affords students with a unique opportunity for intercultural exchange inside and outside of the classroom. Furthermore, the growing and global MEG network is a helpful asset for students after they leave university and pursue careers around the globe.

This diversity extends to disciplinary backgrounds as well. Before coming to Freiburg, our students studied and worked in business, political science, engineering, natural resource management, and a wide array of other fields.
