alumna Cristina Hartmann! After completing her TUM business
management studies with a focus on corporate and
entrepreneurial finance, she applied to UBS for a position in
investment banking. Her experience with Manage&More when
dealing with project partners and customers from the financial
world and the self-confidence she gained were a great help in
interviews for the job. Starting her career was also much
easier for her, thanks to Manage&More: "I was able to test
myself with Mange&More and learn from experienced
colleagues,design projects and plan meetings - all this still
helps me today!" By now, Cristina Hartmann is exactly where she
wanted to be: She is working for UBS in foreign exchange sales
