What do you do?
I’m a technology consulting partner, with a focus on the auto industry (IT strategy/transformation, digital business models, connected cars, autonomous cars)
How did your studies prepare you for this work?
For me, studying Information Systems was the perfect complement to my previous training as a banker. I’d always been interested in IT and business ever since I was in school. This course was the perfect way to combine the business aspect with the IT side of things. It’s no surprise that I then started working at a consulting company.
What advice would you give to our current students?
I highly recommend getting as much practical experience as possible while you’re still studying. That helps in particular to form an idea of where you want to go after you graduate. Because a degree in IS opens up so many possibilities – including software development, process or strategy consulting, or even founding your own start-up in the digital economy – I think it’s very important to have broad practical experience so that you can make good career decisions.
