About Me

My name is Helen Faber and I am a motivated and ambitious business student, studying CEMS International Management at the University of Cologne. Starting in 2018, I will spend my semester abroad in Seoul at the Korea University Business School in order to enhance my personal skills, broaden my cultural horizon and to attain deep knowledge about management practices.

I am highly interested to work in an international environment, since I appreciate a dynamic and diverse working culture. In particular, I am interested in the field of strategy, business development and finance. Currently, I am looking for a challenging internship abroad, starting in summer 2018, to gain international work experience.
