I was fascinated by the diversity and broad content of the Economic and Business Education studies. During the school internship, I was able to get an early insight into the everyday life of a vocational school teacher. The University of Mannheim not only offers a beautiful scenery with the Schloss, the students also benefit from high quality teaching. While the Bachelor’s program imparts a very broad and profound basic knowledge in business administration, economics, law and pedagogy, the Master’s program offers a chance to set individual priorities and additionally chose a general subject out of a large selection. This interdisciplinarity has always been very enriching for me. Furthermore the Chairs are always in touch with the latest trends: Numerous courses deal with the use of digital media in class or with current challenges in vocational schools.
My Master’s thesis enabled me to start my career in the Human Resources department of the Volvo Group in 2014. Today, I am responsible of supporting our managers of the Volvo Group Trucks branch in Southern Germany and for advising our sales departments all over Germany on HR topics. My knowledge of both psychology and education as well as my specialization in Human Resources, a subfield of business administration, continue to be very valuable in my daily work. The methodological and social skills I gained during my studies were key to my professional career.
