Head of Business Development
Sascha started his career immediately after completing his bachelor's degree in Communication and Media Management at UE. Today he works for one of the largest software companies in the world and, as Head of New Business Development, is responsible for opening up new business areas. He guides companies from more than 15 industries into digitization. He says he owes his current career to his studies at UE. "The career opportunities for UE graduates are very good. Since the professors give really practical impressions one-to-one, graduates leave the university with knowledge that can be applied practically immediately.”
In the fifth semester Sascha spent a semester abroad at a university in South Africa via UE: "Again and again my semester abroad in Africa came up during job interviews. As soon as I began to talk, everyone was completely spellbound and almost only asked questions about my experiences.”
Sascha says there is a great demand for new talent in this field: "We can always use good people". Unfortunately, many suitable applicants often lack the necessary soft skills and, above all, intercultural sensitivity: "These are also contents that are solidly conveyed at UE , but it's best to bring a strong willingness to communicate with yourself."
