Lennart Schulze completed the Bachelor program Sociology, Politics & Economics at Zeppelin University from 2012 to 2016 and completed his Master in Psychology at the University of Cambridge in summer 2017. After his Master's, he worked for the SPD as a member of the research team during the 2017 federal election campaign. He then spent two years at Partnerschaft Deutschland, a public sector consultancy owned by the German government. Since 2019, his Ph.D. at the European University Institute in Florence has focused on forms of work in which employees are deployed by their employers to clients, for example, in the context of temporary work or consulting.
"The Bachelor's in SPE has given me a unique opportunity to pursue my interests and ideas between the study of social inequality, behavioral science, and psychology. The approach of giving us students responsibility for developing our scientific questions from the beginning provides excellent preparation for careers in academia and government, and business. Indeed, identifying and addressing relevant questions is at the core of all of these fields.
Around these questions, SPE offers the opportunity to learn about theories and research methods of the various disciplines in creative yet informed ways. I believe that the social science education at ZU is among the best you can get, nationally and internationally. It is probably no coincidence that in 2016 we were able to celebrate a great reunion in England with five fellow students at Oxford and Cambridge and many more at LSE and UCL from the first two years of SPE."
"Zeppelin University, in addition to the excellent academic support, which in my impression is at least equal to the intensive support in Cambridge, allows meetings with enthusiastic students of all kinds, whom the university supports to the best of their ability in the development of all your projects - academic, artistic or social. The diversity of student initiatives is impressive and allows everyone to continue their involvement or explore new avenues.
I miss most exciting conversations with stimulating fellow students, the highly cordial staff, and interested professors over lunch or at evening events over a glass of wine in our soul, the university cafeteria. "
