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

... I like to think back to great study times, which obviously fascinated me so much that I dare to take this step again today. Since autumn of this year I have been studying business & management part-time and again I feel this thirst for action and thirst for knowledge in me to gain new knowledge or to use it in practice as best as possible. I also fondly remember the semester abroad in Finland; I would do it again!

How did your studies prepare you for your current job?

The study program prepared me very well for my current job. I feel able to cope with a wide range of tasks and accept challenges. In order to be able to analyze, understand and solve social problems in the best possible way, you definitely need good instruments in the back of your mind.

Also the ability to grasp relationships in a systemic context, is essential in my daily practice and was learned, taught and trained in a practical way during my studies. Dealing with applied law, which has become very important during my studies, helps me a lot in my daily work. I am glad to have completed my studies at the MCI, because in my eyes this combination of theory and practice has worked very well.
