Bio Summary

I am a PhD student in Entrepreneurship at WHU – Otto Beisheim School of Management and community development manager & startup coach at the WHU Entrepreneurship Center. Before joining WHU, I worked as a management consultant in the Dubai office of BCG, conducting projects in the area of real estate, aviation and financial institutions. My education and prior work experience has enabled me to attain a diversified set of skills in the areas of corporate strategy, product and project management, financial analysis, and information management. Throughout my bachelor studies in business information systems at Frankfurt School of Finance & Management I have worked in various departments of Deutsche Telekom AG and completed a vocational training as a computer science expert during the first two years of the program. Before completing my master's degree in International Management at ESADE Business school, I worked as a business analysis intern in the banking division of Deutsche Bank and gained first experience as a management consultant at PwC.
