The Bucerius Buddy System pairs international Master students with program alumni, Bucerius students or Bucerius staff. Buddies are volunteers who are there to help new students make a smooth transition to life in Hamburg and to get settled in.
In order to bring non-Germans and Germans together, the LLM/MLB Program organizes a "buddy system" that pairs international LLM/MLB students with MLB alumni and Bucerius students or staff.
A German buddy may be a helpful resource when there are questions about German culture, language and daily life in Germany. It may also be a nice opportunity to get to know German family and social life.
“The buddy system is a great tool to bring the international MLBs together with the German culture. We both benefited from our language differences: I practiced my German and he his Spanish. I am fortunate to say that my buddy became an unconditional friend.”
