Project Responsibility

Before the actual trip to the ASEAN countries takes place, it is crucial to provide the participants with the necessary skills and knowledge. The preparatory seminar is a great opportunity to build up a network as well as to get a deeper insight into the different countries' cultures. Therefore, my main task is to organize this one-week preparatory seminar in order to offer participants an interactive, challenging and exciting course with experts from various industries, embassies and schools.


I had my first international experience whilst working with the Private Banking Mexico International department at Credit Suisse. The strong belief into the emerging markets is not only known for Latin America, but also for Southeast Asia. I further spent half a year in Australia before I started my bachelor program in Business Administration. During my third semester of studies I had the opportunity to successfully complete an exchange semester at a university in Madrid, where I acquired important knowledge about the Spanish culture and was able to broaden my horizon. Thus, I am looking forward to explore Southeast Asia with its huge growth potential.
