Fachhochschule Dortmund (2020)

Lara Austermann

Exploring the world from a small village – this is my story.  I grew up in a small village near Muenster and my path continued for my Business Administration Bachelor studies in the city of Dortmund, which is famous for soccer. During my studies, I got experience in the sector of constructions, luxury real estate (in the greater area of Los Angeles, USA) and Sales & Business Development. As this will be my first case study competition, which will also be a special digital experience, I am motivated, positive and looking forward to the shared digital time and new impressions.

In my studies, I have specialised on Strategic Management and currently, I am in my final term. Moreover, I gained first work experience by doing two internships.

I am currently at the end of my Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration with a focus on Human Resource Management and Corporate Management. As a student assistant at the Center for Applied Studies & Education in Management (CASEM) at Fachhochschule Dortmund, I have come into contact with case studies in a variety of ways. ROCA will be my first case competition and I am looking forward to my participation. Besides that, I love to work with classical music, drawing, poetry, singing and other musical arts.
