Study background before ESMT: Economics and Business Administration
Internship position during the MIM/ Social Impact Project: Financial Reporting Intern
Job position after graduation: Financial Analyst at Daimler Financial Services, Stuttgart
What were your personal highlights from your time at ESMT Berlin?
"The whole master program was very well structured and designed. Moreover, you really get the full package: a great atmosphere, experienced professors, ambitious students, strong connections with corporates, modern facilities and a friendly staff. I can’t just emphasize one or few aspects, because it’s only when you combine all of them that you can get such a great outcome."
What were your key takeaways from the MIM program?
"Aside of all the high-level academic courses, what I consider really valuable were the improvements I made in dealing with stress, time-management, and group conflict resolution. Due to the fast-paced modules, with the help of various development skills sessions, I was able to improve my attitude towards issues as well as the management of divergent opinions in order to get the job done."
Did you participate in any student clubs? If so, which one and what were your tasks?
"I was responsible for the Finance workstream of the DigitalFuture Summit 2018. My colleagues and I put a lot of work and passion into this conference and I am proud of what we have achieved. I am confident that the DigitalFuture summit will become an important “trademark” for ESMT that will get more and more popular year after year."
How have your studies at ESMT shaped your career thus far?
"The strong connection between ESMT career services and Daimler Financial Services is the main reason why I am currently working there. After I did my Internship in the Financial Reporting Group department I continued as a working student and afterwards as a Financial Analyst. A big credit goes of course to the colleagues who started before me and left a good impression at Daimler. Every year more and more colleagues from ESMT join Daimler for an internship and later for a full time position. This clearly shows how well the good work of ESMT students is regarded from corporates."
Any thoughts you like to share with future students?
"ESMT has a lot to offer to its students, more than is actually feasible to do, due to time constraints. If you optimistically look forward to a great experience and you’re hard-working and ambitious, you will definitely get the best out of it!"
