1. What is your position in the board and what are your main tasks?
My main tasks is to improve the quality of the education at JIBS and to help students with educational related issues
2. How is a typical workweek in your position?
I wouldn’t say that I have a “typical” workweek.. What I do differ very much from week to week, but in general it includes different meetings, student case solving and being present at various JSA-related events. Every week is about constantly trying to improve the education, regardless if it’s in meetings with the faculty, with the student union, my amazing committee or just on my own thinking about new ways of how to improve the quality of the education.
3. What do you like to do in your free time? Any hobbies or specific interests?
When I’m free from everything that is school-related I love to hang out with my friends, no matter what we do. Of course I’d prefer if we were out traveling around the world, since that’s my favorite thing to do. Or OK, it has shared first place with eating tasty food. Preferably my dad’s. Other than that I unfortunately don’t have any interesting hobbies…
4. What made you decide to apply for your position?
I had so many thoughts and opinions about the education here at JIBS, both with what I was happy about, but also with what I was less pleased about. I realized that nothing would change if I just kept these thoughts to myself, or by discussing it with my friends, so I wanted to be able to make something out of it and to be able to really make a difference.
5. What have this opportunity given to you?
Oh, it has given me so much.. Most of all it has enabled me to develop skills that I wouldn’t have been able to read my way to. To actually be able to test some of your theoretical knowledge in practice is what I find the best way of learning. Moreover, I have met amazing people that are driven, engaged and inspiring that I treasure highly. This opportunity really lets you grow as a person and I think that engaging in extracurricular activities is a great way to prepare for the future, as least that’s how I feel after almost a year as Head of Quality.
6. Do you have any advice for future applicants?
My advice would be to do some research about the different positions available to see which one you find the most interesting. You’re not supposed to know how everything works, but with a strong passion and dedication for the chosen position I’m confident that everyone can succeed. The passing year has been amazing and I would encourage all students who find this interesting to apply, you won’t regret it!
