I never regretted my switch from the German general master to the English specialized MAMBE program and I can just encourage students to study MAMBE and to profit from this interdisciplinary study program in every sense!"
The connection between microbiology and evolution is really great in the MAMBE curriculum. However, the most helpful courses of the MAMBE curriculum were the 'scientific presentation and writing' courses. We enormously improved our ability to present a scientific talk and to write a scientific paper."
