SIU Model UN at MUNmö 2015 Conference

Posted on November 24th, 2015 by SIU Heidelberg

12239313_10153674404471397_8784106441606287607_oThis weekend, the Schiller Heidelberg Model United Nations team was sent to snowy Malmö, Sweden for a conference on West African Issues. A number of different committees of the UN were represented and detailed resolutions regarding a wide array of issues were passed through the mock General Assembly. Of eight awards in the conference, Schiller took home two, creating an image of success for both the University and those who participated.

Ryan Sherring was awarded the honorable mention for his part as Germany of the Disarmament and Security Committee (DISEC), sponsoring a resolution on the illicit trade of small arms and light weapons in West Africa. He was also voted as “most diplomatic by his committee”.

Natia Bueno (our photo) took home the highest honor of best delegate for her leadership in the Social, Cultural, and Humanitarian Committee (SOCHUM) and was voted “most likely to become a dictator” by her fellow committee members. She is truly an asset to her university and all those who get the privilege to work with her. (more…)

Student Success

" I won’t really miss Schiller for the books, the lectures, the library, the campus, but I will the people that make up Schiller, more particularly the students. The students are what make Schiller an unforgettable experience and life changing one at that. Each of us comes from a different country, different culture, different religion, some who are fresh out of high school and others who have worked their entire lives. I know that we will never forget the fun memories that were had, the things that were learned and I am absolutely positive, we will never forget those who have become a part of our lives while attending Schiller."

~ Hanna Schiller
Bachelor, Int'l Business, 2012

"My degree was in business and marketing. While it helped with the basics of business, the biggest benefit I received from Schiller was the international exposure. Working with people from all cultures and backgrounds is invaluable. Language helps and may be the foundation to understanding other cultures, but living with and befriending those people brings it to a level of real understanding. I think Schiller students more than others look for the underlying reasons for a thought process, not simply "why don't they understand me" attitudes of many others. It helps in business more than dollars and cents could ever explain."

~ Christopher Foster
MBA, International Business

"Schiller University has provided me as well as students from all over the world the opportunity to excel in their education and careers. I had the experience to meet excellent professors, build a prestigious network, and further my education while studying in the heart of Heidelberg, Germany. As a result, I have accomplished the job of my dreams at SAP SE as a Marketing professional. I keep a great memory of the professional experience I have gained at Schiller University and highly recommend any student looking for a good academic curriculum plus the want to succeed in their profession to this institution of higher education."

~ Jameka Woodberry
MBA, International Business, 2015

"Studying at Schiller International University was the best academic decision I have ever made. It laid the foundation of my professional career in business and politics. During my days at the Schiller, I had the unique opportunity to study in a very special multinational and multicultural environment. It was due to the dedicated and inspiring faculty that I really enjoyed studying for the first time. However Schiller is much more than solid education – it is a school for life. At Schiller I have met fellow students from all over the world – many of whom are very close friends today. I believe in Schiller as this university widened my global perspective as well as developed my understanding for other cultures and mentalities."
