Thorben Knobloch

Tk

(student of the first semester/ start of study: october 2016)

Where I am from:

I grew up in Heidelberg, Germany and lived in Berlin and Leipzig for several years.

What I did before starting the EELP program:

I studied psychology at the Free University Berlin and philosophy at the University Leipzig

Why I decided to start the EELP program? Which aspects of this programe are most interesting for me?

One of the main reasons choosing the EELP-master was the possibility of applying my philosophical skils to relevant problems of international politics, e.g. migration of climate change, and at the same time ganing new knowledge in other relevant fields of research. For me it was also important that the master is organized by the philosophical faculty, so that the master has a focus on the normative dimension of current political, legal and economic issues. I also appreciate the option of choosinga more research - or practice oriented course of studies and that most of the lectures and seminars are in English.

(student of the first semester/ start of study: October 2016)

Where I am from:

I grew up in Solingen about 50km south from Bochum

What I did before starting the EELP program:

I studied Business Administration and Engeenering in Stuttgart. Aftre graduation I have been working in strategic management and sales for a large technology group in Stuttgart.

Why I decided to start the EELP program? Which aspects of this program are most interesting to me?

While working in sales for a globally active company, I was responsible for developing new market potentials in Africa. However, there were some evident tensions between the company's and local interests. That was when I started wondering, what the "right" answers to these conflicts would be and found them to be rather controversial. So now I am looking forward to find approaches in a philosophical study program that strongly include economicla, political and legal perspectives.

What would I like to do after finishing the EELP program?

I consider several options. For isntance I can see myself in management in a multinational corporation trying to implement what is economically sensible with what is ehtically correct. On the other hand, a position in politics respectively public administration could also be suitable. Or maybe something completely different come up during the EELP program.

Jp Klein

(student of the first semester/ start of study: October 2016)

Where I am from:
I was born in the USA close to Chicago and I grew up in the near of Heidelberg/ Germany

What I did before starting the EELP program:
I studied BA Philosophie, Neuroscience, Cognition in Magdeburg

Why I decided to start the EELP program? Which aspects of this program are most interesting to me?
Throughout my membership in the Debating Society of Mageburg I was in touch with different political, economic and social topics of current time. That brought me to the EELP program in Bochum. With respect to the current refugee situation in Europe, questions about global poverty, development aid and the direction of development and future of the EU raise public awareness. These foreign policy issues and connected philosophical-political questions are in my interest: Do we have a global duty to help? Is the state obliged more towards its own citizens than towards others? How to improve development aid and make it more efficient? However, I am also interested in questions of distributive justice, for instance when it comes to heritage-tax or the progressive tax system.
I have at least two reasons for studying EELP:
First, my big interest in social relevant issues of practical philosophy, in solutions and problems of application in politics and the necessary connection to pragmatic reason and the financial aspects of politics.
Second, after hopefully finishing the MA EELP, I am planning to start working in the field of Corporate Social Responsibiliy, political consulting or other related branches.

Cc

(student of the third semester/ start of study: October 2015)

Where I am from:
Perl (Saarland), Germany

What I did before starting the EELP program:
Chinese Studies and Business Administration in Konstanz (Germany) and Beijing (China)

Why did you decide to start the EELP program? Which aspects of this program are most interesting to me?
During my BA studies I became increasingly intrigued by questions and quandaries broached by political and moral philosophy, what eventually impelled me to change my field of study. The EELP program allows me to pursue this interest at a graduate level. Above all, it was the program's objective to conceive social and political disputes and challenges both descriptively and normatively and the therefrom resulting interdisciplinary that was decisive for my decision.

What would I like to do after finishing the EELP program?
I would relish the chance to continue my academic career by undertaking a PhD program. The MA EELP assists me to better grasp and articulate philosophical issues that lie behind most social and political controversies. Furthermore, it helps me to ferret out and focus on topics I find particularly compelling. In brief, EELP provides me with plenty of oppurtunities to practice and develop academic skills.

Alina Pfleghardt

Ap

(student of the third semester/ start of study: October 2015)

Where I am from: 
Nürnberg (Germany)

What I did before starting the EELP program:
B.A. in Economics (FAU Erlangen-Nürnberg) in cooperation with a company which means at the same time I also did an apprenticeship in Industrial Business Management

Why I decided to start the EELP program? Which aspects of this program are most interesting to me?
Working in a pure business environment was not fulfilling for me. I decided to take a step away from that because I'm interested in interdisciplinary work. In particular, I want to further develop topics that lie at the intersection of philosophy, economics and law.

What would I like to do after finishing the EELP program?
After finishing the EELP-master I would like to do a PhD-program. EELP helps me to deepen my knowledge of normative-oriented practical philosophy and combine this with skills in empirical-oriented social science.
