Team Building Workshop at SIU Madrid

Team Building Workshop at SIU Madrid

Yesterday, the students at Schiller’s Madrid campus had the opportunity to attend a crash course on International Management Skills given by Wim Zwaenepoel, a Communication Specialist. The Team Building Workshop was organized by our amazing Career Services Department.

Here is what Lucía Martín de Vidales Noagles, one of our International Relations students, told us about her experience:

“The course, which focused on team building, began with an interactive explanation on the way teams work and how international companies can benefit from successful teams. The presentation also covered the challenges we might have to face when working as a team, which we could later see for ourselves when the most dynamic part of the course started. We performed two different exercises divided in teams. Although both of them required creativity and quick thinking, the first one focused on discussing and reaching an agreement, while the second focused on working together to achieve a specific goal.

It was a very interesting and dynamic activity that helped us to improve our team working skills in an enjoyable way.”

Meet Vina, our Bachelor student at Paris campus and see what she has to say in our interview.

 

Can you remember what your original motivation was for obtaining your degree? 
What motivated me to obtain a degree in international relations and diplomacy was the fact that there is more to international relations than just politics. It focuses on a broad range of topics such as environmental issues, preservation of cultural property, technology and so on. Continue reading “Meet Vina, Bachelor Student at Paris Campus”

Meet our Alumni – Borja Granzow

 

Borja Granzow, a Schiller Madrid Alumni, recently came by the university and we had the opportunity to ask him what was his experience was like here at Schiller International University. Let us read it from his own words:

“Firstly, attending Schiller was a boost, not only on my academic life, but also in my personal life. One of the most distinct ways Schiller has helped me in, would be in the International education that they provided. As it was the first time in my life that I was surrounded by so many nationalities and cultures all over the world. And being able to learn and adapt to each one of them, which has helped me in my job on a daily basis, as I worked with different nationalities and cultures every day.

After finishing at Schiller I was hired by a Spanish company, where I’ve been working for the last two years, in three different cities, Madrid, Lima and Santiago de Chile. The company I work for is a Freight forwarder , in which I have worked as a Logistics Operator. We arrange customs and international transportation of goods for companies imports and exports with a worldwide presence.

Surely, the greatest benefit of an international career is the possibility to learn about different cultures of people that are the same as you no matter your status or race and learning to work and adapt to them. Also , having the possibility to adapt yourself in that country in the future. “
