Career-paths of our alumni

Charlotte Siering (Graduation 2018) 

“By studying the comprehensive connections of the ECUE Masters, it is easy for me to think outside the box and to put myself in different perspectives. The ability to quickly develop new, complex subject areas still makes my day-to-day work as an executive assistant much easier. "

Charlotte works as an executive assistant for the GLS Bank.


Simon Hartmann (Graduation 2017)

"I experienced the ECUE-studies as a precious treasure. The rich variety of interdisciplinary and intercultural perspectives have been very valuable for my education as a generalist. My stays in Belgium and Turkey were only possible through ECUE. Thereby I found a second home in the Ruhr-area, which is buzzing with cultural richness."

Simon works as consultant for the FDP-fraction in the Landtag (state parliament) of North Rhine-Westfalia
