Responsibility

My main task is the coordination of the project within the team as well as with other stakeholders such as the School of Business. An important part of the exploreASEAN project is our two and a half-week seminar to Southeast Asia. I am in charge of organizing this seminar and ensuring that the delegation will be able to benefit as much as possible during the short time we will spend abroad. The purpose of the onsite seminar is to get a better understanding of the cultures of the visited countries and connect with local as well as Swiss companies and organizations on site.

Experience

Prior to my studies I had the opportunity to complete a two years development program in an international bank. During this time, I had my first international experience by completing half of my program in London, UK. I further spent half a year working in London before I started my bachelor program in Business Administration. During my third semester of studies I successfully completed an exchange semester in Vietnam. This is where my fascination for Southeast Asia arose and my curiosity about its potential piqued. Thus, I look forward to this unique opportunity and I am honoured to be part of exploreASEAN  2017/2018
