What tasks are you currently working on?

In addition to modelling business processes for my business unit, I am currently charged with procurement and contract management (ie licences, external consultants), as well as internal cross-sectional tasks.

How did your studies at the Bundesbank's University of Applied Sciences prepare you for the requirements of your career, especially your current position?

We were given a broad overview of a central bank's tasks and the operational procedures at the Bundesbank. It also provided me with a large network of contacts, not just within Central Office.

In what way has studying at the Bundesbank's University of Applied Sciences influenced you?

The warm welcome and support we students received, especially at the castle, helped create a great sense of connectedness and loyalty towards the Bundesbank.

What was the biggest challenge you faced while studying?

As a girl from the big city, it was probably the remoteness of the university in the windy Westerwald, but also the heavy workload and the fact that classes started at a time (7.30!) which was not really compatible with my personal biorhythm.

Do you still feel connected to "your" university?

Definitely! I have never regretted my decision to study at beautiful Hachenburg castle.
