International Business Management - Master CUAS

(Graduated in 2017)
Sourcer – Digital Brand Commerce / Talent Acquisition, Adidas, Germany

After finishing my Bachelor studies in Budapest, I already had a clear vision that I would like to move abroad to build my career. In order to differentiate myself from the high competition on the Western European labour market, I needed a well-ranked business master program - that is why I chose the Carinthia University of Applied Sciences.

The 1.5 years in Villach flew by super quickly. As the program is work-friendly, I managed to find a part-time position that kept me busy besides my studies and allowed me to use my German language knowledge on a daily basis. Having this routine (work & uni) taught me how to prioritize my tasks and be efficient every day.

The International Business Management program was a great adventure spiced up with challenging group works, projects, case studies, experienced guest speakers and company visits. The internationality of our class allowed us to practice our intercultural competence on a daily basis. In the 4th semester I decided to get out of my comfort zone and applied for an HR internship at the Adidas Global Headquarters. During this period, I also wrote my master thesis about the changes in the recruitment industry. After graduating, I managed to stay within in the company in the Talent Acquisition department, which means hard work pays off and I am definitely working for my passion.

In case you want to gain hands-on experience in an international environment with a beautiful nature around you, I definitely suggest the International Business Management program at the Carinthia University of Applied Sciences.
