To what extent do you think the university and the study experience prepared you for your career?

At Macromedia, there were a lot of opportunities to interface with the industry and learn from innovative companies. Therefore, we were always up to date about the latest industry trends, new technologies and developments. This was extremely helpful in preparing me for my career.

In terms of collaborating with real companies and practical experiences during your studies – which experience did you like best and why?

Working on a team project with BOSCH was one of the best experiences I had at Macromedia. It was a great opportunity to see a real company’s perspectives on Design Thinking and use it to address actual business challenges they are facing.

I chose Macromedia because of its international environment and excellent professors.
I would definitely recommend Macromedia to anyone who wants to study media or design in an international environment.

That definitely would be the many late nights I spent working on projects with my classmates. The excursion to Italy with the whole class was also a memorable event for all of us.

I had the chance to cooperate with different people from different cultural backgrounds. It is very interesting and challenging at the same time. It’s already been over a year since I graduated but I still keep in touch with my classmates and professors. They are the people I have known the longest since I moved to Germany.

Digital transformation is inevitable. I think, as professionals, we should keep our eyes open for new opportunities and always continue developing our skills so we can actively be part of it.
