What did your typical week at zeb look like?

My week was a typical consultant week: packing my suitcase on Sunday evening, traveling to the client’s by train on Monday morning and working there until Thursday. On Thursday evening, I returned home and Friday was my office day

What does a typical week look like for you?

Unlike in consulting, I hardly have to travel at all, which I really appreciate, since I have just moved to Münster and first want to settle down here. My tasks are highly varied, I work on larger projects such as designing a new pricing strategy for a bank, but also frequently on smaller market analyses or the further development of our market models.

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.
