Testimonials career development (BEW)


In this seminar for young researchers of the Faculty of Business Economics, three PhD holders will talk about their career. Two of them are employed outside academia; one is a professor. They will describe how they developed their career path, what the role of their PhD has been during this process, which competences obtained during their PhD they still use today, which decisions they had to make, etc. Afterwards there will be room for questions.
