Completing the internships along with my studies at KvB gave me great confidence to enter the industry. I landed an interview for a position with ‘Studio 2524’ a swiss company based in Thailand. Under two weeks later I was hired and made the move.

Lyn Tran

As a Full-time Fashion student and a Part-time Design Assistant my main challenge I face on a daily basis is time management. For me the combination of both work and study is the best form of education in my search for success.

Mightor Hernandez

When I finally decided to study interior design after working in the corporate world for 15 years, I thought the difficult part was finding a school that would accept my application.  That was not the case when I chanced upon the Karl von Busse Insitute of Design.
