Study Program: Executive Master in Business Administration (MBA)

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

I am still an enthusiastic student. Acquiring knowledge at a university, maneuvering through the curriculum with my peers and ultimately celebrating that rewarding day of completion together has meant so much to me. The MCI is a first-class educational institution. This becomes apparent once you study there.

How did your studies prepare you for your current job?

As a “late blooming” student I found it very useful to connect practice to theory and vice versa. It is a lot of fun to apply models and methods in a structured and conscious way, to directly determine their practical relevance and to adapt or improve them accordingly. And if you don’t have fun, you won’t be successful in your job. Studying at MCI motivated me to go on to study philosophy. I have now successfully completed my philosophy program. We’ll see what comes next. My studies at MCI were definitely the beginning of a major intellectual development.
