Niklas Kurz studied Sociology, Politics and Economics (SPE) at ZU. Today he is Chief Operation Officer (COO) at WEFRA LIFE..
"Systemic and holistic approach to challenges. This goes hand in hand with the ability to learn about different perspectives, to accept them, to compromise and to remain tolerant".
"All of them. I have former students who have completed another science degree after ZU, others have studied theatre, some have stayed in Academia and others are working on their own start-up ideas or in intentional organisations."
"In which gives students the space, no matter what their academic intention, whether they are studying economics or culture, to collide and share ideas or create projects together."
"It taught me to think systemically and instead of reacting impulsively, to wait, to get an overview, to recognise connections and then to consciously but firmly make a decision that I as a person can also support."
"I wanted to study interdisciplinary back in 2012. At that time, however, there were no equivalent interdisciplinary study programmes between politics, sociology and economics.
And by allowing me to study for SPE in the first degree programme, ZU offered me an innovative and pioneering degree programme."
"...I think of many great people I was able to meet. I think of many friends I made, an environment at the university where I felt very comfortable and welcome, and a lot of nonsense we did."
