Dusán Oluic, a bachelor's student in Energy & Sustainability Management, shares how he attempts to keep the balance between his studies and basketball: "You can say it's like a real job, but I never thought of it that way. Basketball is something I really enjoy and love to do. I can't imagine my everyday life without the sport. In my studies, we deal with very interesting and current topics related to sustainability. My fellow students and the teachers are great, which makes the whole study experience even more pleasant. The course schedule and training times fit together perfectly, so the mix of sports and studies in Kufstein is ideal for me."
