Meet Steffen Kohler from Germany
"I chose to do my Master’s at JIBS because of the university’s international environment, its focus on entrepreneurship and its close collaboration with the industry. When you study here you immediately recognize that the students, as well as the teachers, com from all around the world. The school has a truly international character.
The university’s hands-on approach means you often work on extensive group projects collaborating with regional and international companies, which is a great way to prepare yourself for your future career. In Corporate Entrepreneurship, which I think is one of the most interesting courses at JIBS, I developed entrepreneurial measures together with a local company in order to strengthen the company’s competitive edge. JIBS also offers excellent research on family business development. Once per year, a group of students attend the Family Enterprise Case Competition in Vermont, USA. Luckily I was given the chance to join this team and ended up spending lots of time together with my team members preparing our case.
I love to travel and JU’s worldwide network of partner universities has given me the opportunity to study one semester at the University of Cape Town – Graduate School of Business. After my graduation I plan to travel for a couple of months before I enter the corporate world. Once I’m back home in Germany, I have been asked to join a start-up company in Berlin."
