Modules

During the last semester of my masters, I undertook a work placement at a Chinese-German company which gave me valuable work experience and the opportunity to apply project management knowledge, such as stakeholder management and how to implement projects in a real-life, fast-moving environment. I was also able to apply some of the intercultural and multilingual skills in English and Chinese I developed during my studies.
