Curriculum Vitae

Following my school graduation in 1992 and my first professional experiences at various employers, I decided to serve an apprenticeship with an industrial printery. This was to become an industrial manager and to gather work experience. In addition to fulfilling the basic aims of the apprenticeship and the technical college I attended concurrently, I also got to know graphic trades, teamwork, daily stress and overtime! On completion of my apprenticeship, responsibility for clients, employees and suppliers were added.

In 1997, I decided to supplement my practical skills by beginning my ”International Business” studies at the University of Applied Sciences Dortmund, Germany. This course of study – where only 20 students per year are accepted – focusses next to regular business studies on International Marketing and foreign languages. Three out of eight semesters are entirely spent abroad. Due to the wide international range of subjects studied, my thesis will be accepted both by my home university and my university abroad (HES Amsterdam) so that I will graduate with a double-degree (Diplom-Betriebswirt (FH) and Bachelor of International Management). I hope to obtain this double-degree in June 2001 by handing in a thesis bearing the subject `International Business - the development of foreign markets as a marketing strategy, the export of a Dutch marketing service to Germany to be an example´.

I believe that my broad education is meeting the increased requirements of today‘s business world. Hopefully it is also a springboard into an international career!
