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

I think of an unforgettable time in my life during which I developed enormously on a professional and even more so on a personal level.
I think of my supportive, smart peers from whom I learned a lot both for my studies and for my personal development. In any kind of group work we could always rely on each other. We completed every project successfully, no matter how challenging it was.
I think of the beautiful city of Innsbruck with its majestic mountain backdrop and numerous outdoor activities.
I think of the many capable and incredible people working at MCI and the nice infrastructure (meeting rooms, facilities, etc.).

How did your studies prepare you for your current job?

The seemingly endless number of individual and team presentations we did at MCI helped me to be become a more confident and structured speaker. In my current position I present important topics to large audiences in a professional and inspiring way.
During my studies, I learned how to take a more critical approach to issues and how to verify and assess facts.
There were also many specialized subjects within our curriculum that I am now utilizing and further expanding within my current position.
