On December 2nd, 2015, the first semester students of the International Business Management master´s degree program had the pleasure to welcome Mrs. Sandra Wiesinger, HR Director for the Fused Minerals Division of IMERYS for a guest lecture as part of their “Management & Leadership” course.

IMERYS is a multinational French mining group with headquarters in Paris. It is specialized in processing minerals for different industrial applications. IMERYS is globally active with a footprint on all five continents, more than 16,000 employees and a group turnover of 3.7 billion euros in 2014.

Mrs. Wiesinger provided the students with very valuable insights into her work in the field of international HR management, especially also regarding the company´s graduate development program (which also includes alumni of the CUAS International Business Management master´s program).

In a lively discussion, the International Business Management class of 2015 could also gain very helpful advice for future application processes and for finding the right job – for which, according to Mrs. Wiesinger, they should first and foremost develop a passion in order to be successful.
