Henning Jaenisch: German
I enjoy the atmosphere in Liverpool, there is always something going on and the city has a vibrant and exciting sensation and offers so many great experiences.
What were you doing before you began MSc study?
I was doing my Bachelors (Undergraduate) at the Berlin School for Economics and Law in Business Administration and Logistics. I also worked for Deutsche Bahn, the biggest Rail Transport Company in Europe, in the European Steel Sales sector.
Why did you choose to study at the University of Liverpool Management School?
I have travelled to Liverpool before and really liked it. The city compares to my hometown in many ways so I felt very comfortable around here. While finishing my undergraduate, I had a look at the offers from the University of Liverpool and really liked the contents and the opportunities in regard to my future career. I then applied and it worked out very well.
Did you receive a scholarship?
I received the ULMS full scholarship and am very honoured about that. It contributed greatly to my financial ability to do this master’s.
Which aspects of the MSc course do you think will be most beneficial to your career development?
The practical knowledge combined with the great networks of the university. A student doesn’t only get a degree in the end, but you will have made new friends and found out how to develop a career. That combination, to me, resembles real value in education.
Have you received help and advice from the School’s MSc Careers Advisor?
Yes. The advisors have been very supportive and helpful to me.
Will you be undertaking a placement as part of your programme?
I did several work placements during my undergraduate and will focus on studying for now. However, the university offers many interactions with companies. Therefore I might find myself doing an internship later during the year.
What have you enjoyed most about living in Liverpool?
The atmosphere. There is always something going on and the city has a vibrant and exciting sensation and offers so many great experiences.
