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

... I remember the stressful times between work and study, which taught discipline to focus on goals and priorities in order to be successful. In the aftermath, it can be said that I wouldn’t want to have missed out on any of the experiences I gained and the new acquaintances and friendships that emerged from my time at MCI

How did your studies prepare you for your current job?

"The MCI provides students with a broad spectrum of knowledge from a wide variety of subject areas, derived from many currently dominant economic sectors. This contributes significantly to the development of a general understanding of various fields and to the recognition of interrelationships, which can also be used in everyday professional life to efficiently achieve goals. It is difficult to quantify the extent to which your studies have helped you to achieve your current position. The MCI provides the basis and also supports and promotes the students in what they set themselves as goals, but I believe that the will and commitment to achieve something are the best guarantees of success in everyday professional life. Thus, the MCI has enabled me to continue my education and gain new experience in addition to my professional life. However, it was always the urge to learn something new and to become better at what you do, which brought me to where I am right now".
