When I look back at my time at MCI...

Looking back at my time-consuming but very well structured and interesting studies, I remember excellent classes with hands-on lecturers (e.g. Dr. Pegger) as well as all my peers. I am still in contact with many of them today. Some of us still get together every 2-3 months at our regular meeting place right next to MCI, the Kapuziner pub.

How did your studies prepare you for your current job?

If it weren’t for my studies, I probably would not be in this leading position at the Tyrolean Economic Chamber, which currently employs 406 people. I acquired the skills needed for my job during my four years at MCI. Thanks to the university’s practical approach I was able to quickly implement what I learned at MCI in my work at the Economic Chamber, even in my previous job as the director of the Landeck branch.
