How did your studies prepare you for your current occupation?

"Because of its interdisciplinary, research-oriented approach, my Master's degree at ZU enabled me to see problems from various perspectives and, as a result, to develop approaches to solving them that may be outside of standard practice and traditional habits."

When I look back on my time at ZU…

"…I think of a group of students who were charmingly unconventional, nice and colorful and more motivated than most and who inspired me time after time with their dedication and commitment. My current job as a Personal Aide to the Federal Minister for Education & Research is affiliated with my course, but even here I haven't met as many exceptional and interesting people as I did at university."
