Why did you choose Aston University? During my bachelor I worked for a student consulting company, so I decided early that I want to go into consultancy later. At Aston I had the chance to focus on Strategy & International Business and write my master thesis as a consulting project, which was the main reason for me to choose Aston University.

What did you enjoy about your course? I mostly enjoyed that there were so many international students studying with me. Even until today I am friends with many of my fellow students, who live in various countries.

What advice would you give to current Aston students? Definitely enjoy the time you have at Aston and enjoy getting to know so many different people and cultures. Until today I work together with many different nations and this is one main thing what I learned at Aston.

What do you enjoy about your current role? I work into Digital Customer Strategy, which is the intersection of strategy, creativity and technology to help clients digitally reinvent their business. This is what I always wanted to do and what I enjoy most about my job.

What are your career ambitions for the future? My future plans are to first get a profound knowledge into digital strategy, so that I can build my own business afterwards.
