After I completed my bachelor’s degree at the FH BFI Vienna and spent several years working in HR and Temporary Placement Services, I decide to continue my studies with the master’s programme “Strategic HR Management in Europe”.

What convinced me was that the programme has an international approach, that English is the medium of instruction, and that the programme can boast both national and international teachers who work in the field. It is also great that I can combine the programme with my full-time job.
