Were your expectations of the bachelor welcome program at zeb fulfilled?
My expectations of the program were met completely. During my time as an Analyst, I was able to gain valuable insights into everyday consulting work and knowledge of the banking industry. I was treated as a colleague from the very beginning and was quickly assigned responsibility. These experiences help me considerably during my Master’s studies.

Why did you decide to join zeb directly as an analyst?
My Bachelor’s degree was very theoretical, and I always wanted more practical relevance and career orientation. After my last exam it was immediately clear: first work, then study some more. The Analyst program offers an ideal link-up between a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree as well as education and career.
