Study program: Business & Management (Bachelor) and International Business (Master)

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

My studies not only prepared me for my career but were fun as well. I learned new, exciting things and made many friends and interesting contacts amongst my peers and lecturers. I was confronted with new challenges and demanding situations that helped me grow and develop.

MCI also encouraged and strengthened my personal skills and sparked my interest for continuing education and further training.

How did your studies prepare you for your current job?

A Master’s degree was a formal requirement for my current job. The Bachelor’s and Master's degree programs at MCI concurrently helped me improve both my IT and management skills.

At MCI, I acquired the theoretical leadership basics in a practical way. Personnel management, process management and finance were particularly relevant for me. Whenever necessary, I can now rely on this set of tools and fundamental theoretical models. They allow me to quickly analyze situations and compare the circumstances and potential solutions with best practice examples. They provide valuable guidance for my actions as an executive as well as a solid, legitimate and transparent basis for my decisions.
