My studies in business and economic education at the University of Mannheim gave me the necessary freedom in my career choice, allowing me to deepen my strengths and complement them with practical experience in both school and the finance and software industry. This increasingly solidified my career aspirations to become a teacher!
The university's reputation, the variety of initiatives, the opportunities to network with companies and the partnerships with universities around the world made the learning environment lively, interesting, and very special.
As a teacher today, I am very grateful for the theoretical knowledge I have acquired in the fields of business administration, psychology, pedagogy, sports on the one hand. On the other hand, the practical and intercultural experiences help me go beyond theory to support the young people as a motivator and contact person.
