Occupation following studies: Marketing at Ratiopharm Ulm / BEKO Basketball National league
Where do you work now and what is your position?
At BBU '01 GmbH in project management

What does your role entail?
Originally my main task was to look after existing sponsors and win new ones. I also organized regular sponsor events and handled development for the products we offer to the Ratiopharm Ulm national league team. As a strong regional brand, these areas are key to our medium and long-term corporate strategy, which is why I am heavily involved in this area. Managing purchasing and personnel management also fall within my area of ​​responsibility now.

What inspires you in your role?
My work is very varied. I have to deal with many different people, companies and projects: I enjoy that very much.

Did you imagine you'd be doing this kind of job before you began your studies?
I hoped and dreamed.

Where did you do your internship semester and how would you rate your experience there?
As a native of Ulm, it was natural for me to consider the idea of completing my practical semester at the only professional sports club in the region. During the course of the internship, it soon became clear that the tasks and the development possibilities at the club presented an exciting challenge. The fact that I was hired by the company directly after my internship semester and was able to finish my studies at the same time, was really great and showed that the club had enormous faith in me.

How was your contact with your fellow students? Are you still in touch today? 
It was always  friendly and easy going. I'm still in close contact with a few of my former fellow students, while contact with others has decreased over time .

How important is it to be "open to change" to be successful today and in our future digitally driven world of work?

It's a core capability. You won't succeed without it.
