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

... I am very grateful for the international focus of our studies, which allowed me to spend a semester in Argentina, do an internship in London and write my Bachelor’s thesis in Uganda. I will never forget special moments like being able to ride my snowboard to an afternoon class at the MCI building at the foot of the Nordkette Mountains thanks to an incredibly large amount of new snowfall or the frequent opportunity to go for a quick climb after one of our lectures.

How did your studies prepare you for your current job?

My studies formed the cornerstone and gave me the courage to start my own association, Jangu e.V. They also paved the way for the foundation of SINA, which followed in 2015.
