When invited to teach at the International Summer School at the University of International Business and Economics in Beijing (UIBE), October 2017, I felt a real mixture of emotions. As an experienced traveler of Asia, the prospect of spending 14 days teaching a class of 60 rather passive Chinese students, albeit with one or two active exceptions, while staying in a modest hotel in 35 degrees heat and up to 97% humidity was less than thrilling.

“Liechtenstein is an unusual place to commence one’s studies. It says something about the type of people who decide to study here. They are very independent, talented, they like to take risks, they are very ambitious and they are critical towards branding. Instead, they like to make up their own minds. If you are this type of person, then I would recommend studying at the University of Liechtenstein.”

Liechtenstein’s borders may not draw past micronation size, but its 160 square kilometers pack everything from an after-work stroll to a three-day cross-country tour. To get a snapshot of what’s in store, look to the principality’s longest panoramic trail. Route 66’s 48 kilometers start from above Malbun. A tiny end-of-the-road mountain resort at 1,600 meters above sea level that hosts outdoor enthusiasts all year round. Take this place down as Liechtenstein’s only ski resort.

Before coming to Liechtenstein, I completed my bachelor’s degree in International Business Administration at the Vienna University of Economics and Business. During my Bachelor studies, I developed a special interest in asset management and decided to write my Bachelor’s thesis about Markowitz's modern portfolio theory.

Passing the CFA exam involves huge learning efforts from your side. This is best shown by the fact that in the last ten years only 43 percent of all candidates passed the Level I examination. Nevertheless, we are proud that the pass rate of last year's candidates from the University of Liechtenstein came out at 67 percent. Before I go into detail of how exactly I passed the exam, I would like to give you a short introduction about how it all started.

The educational journey 2018 of the University of Liechtenstein led us across the Atlantic to the financial metropole of New York City.

More than 9.500km from Liechtenstein we found ourselves in a different world which would become our home for 5 months. We spend our third semester abroad in what we consider the best partner university of Liechtenstein – the National Chengchi University (NCCU/國立政治大學) in Taipei, Taiwan. It all started with the decision to go abroad - which we made pretty much last minute.
