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

I remember daily new experiences and impressions and a great time with friends in a very lively and beautiful environment. The versatility of biotechnology as an interdisciplinary engineering science often challenged, but also gave me the opportunity to get to know myself better, to push my own boundaries and to develop personally and professionally. I am incredibly grateful for that.

How did your studies at MCI prepare you for your current job?

Especially master's program’s in-depth courses related to medicine and pharmacy help me in my daily work. Journal clubs, presentations and scientific work in general were particularly valuable. The MCI's many collaborations with industrial partners and universities allow a specialized focus according to personal interest. Equally, however, the master's program offered a holistic overview of the topics and processes of the entire industry, so all options are open to you after graduation. The MCI gives you the tools you need for a successful career in life sciences. It is up to you to decide where to use them, but you will most likely discover where you want to go during your studies.

What would you tell someone who is considering studying at MCI?

A good decision, good luck!
