Marc Van Dyck decided to pursue the PPM master's degree at ZU after completing his bachelor's degree in business administration. Today, he works as a consultant at McKinsey&Company.

How did your studies prepare you for what you do today?

"Dealing with loud class speakers and alpha dogs helps me now in consulting, too. Joking aside. In particular, working with students, faculty, and guests with very different backgrounds allows me to take different and new perspectives. And I've learned that not everything complicated has to be complex."

Why exactly PPM?

"After my bachelor's degree in business administration, I wanted to devote more time to political and social issues. PPM provided me with the optimal mix of fundamentals in political and administrative sciences, and at the same time, through the minor system, allowed me to further explore business topics academically and rediscover cultural and communication studies."

Looking back, what has ZU provided that another university doesn't begin to offer?

"Universität als unbedingter Mitmach- und Gestaltungsort. Und Kommilitonen vom klassischen Politologen bis hin zum Klodesigner in Afrika. Am Ende auch das Gefühl einer ZU-Familie.""University as an unconditional place to participate and create. And fellow students ranging from classical political scientists to toilet designers in Africa. In the end, also the feeling of a ZU family."
