MAP Alumni Expert Talk
On 08/07/2022 our internal expert talk took place. For this purpose, 5 former MAP members were invited to Münster and gave interesting presentations about their respective careers. The students got exciting insights into various industries: in addition to Robin Zürn (SMP), Friedrich Grimm (Reach) and Jonas Beckmann (Hitschler), Martin Westheide (Lanxess) and Tomor Berisha (Kienbaum) also reported on their activities. In an extensive Q&A session, the MAP participants then had the opportunity to ask their questions.
This was followed by an open social at the chair. While having delicious snacks and drinks, the MAP students were able to exchange ideas and strengthen friendships. The speakers were also present and answered further questions in interesting conversations and a relaxed atmosphere.
Nestlé comes to Münster
On April 20, 2022 Nestlé visited MAP for an exciting event.
After a warm welcome by the corporate partners, an interesting presentation about the trading lanscape and negotiations of the corporation followed. Afterwards, the speakers reported on the opportunities to join Nestlé and were available to answer all open questions from the MAP students.
Later, the students were allowed to become active themselves and worked on case studies in groups. In addition to cases on the topics of sustainability and supply chain management, two groups each also worked in detail on the topics of strategic pricing decisions and negotiations. After working on the cases, all groups were allowed to pitch their results to the Nestlé Key Account Managers and an award ceremony followed. The winners received a box with various food products as well as cups and other goodies.
The event ended with a cozy fireside evening at Watermark at the Münster harbor with snacks and drinks.
We would like to thank Nestlé once again for the exciting event!
MAP visiting BCG in Cologne
On June 9, 2022 the MAP students visited the consulting firm Boston Consulting Group (BCG) in their office in Cologne.
First, BCG warmly welcomed the students and introduced itself as a company. This included a closer look at the everyday life and career - from application to career options - of a consultant. After a delicious lunch, the MAP participants received an informative communication training. Here, students were trained in storytelling, action titles, presenting and setting focus. An exciting practice group speed dating session provided the opportunity to meet and ask questions to various consultants of a wide variety of teams and divisions. The event wound down with casual conversations and drinks.
We would like to thank BCG once again for the successful day and we are already looking forward to the next event!
