presentation by Niklas Jeschke from Blackrock, sunday 20th of January 2019
With great anticipation, we welcomed our second guest speaker Mr. Niklas Jeschke from BlackRock on Sunday 20 January 2019, who shared his experiences and assessments of the industry in front of about 25 members of our society.
It should be particularly emphasized, that the students were not only able to gain insights into the day-to-day business as an investment strategist of BlackRock but also they were able to learn from off-the-topic experiences.
Questions about the academic CV, application processes or even the CFA exam were answered in a fun and casual way, making listening all the more interesting.
It was also very gratifying to see that the upward career path is by no means closed even to very young people. Due to the approximately same age, some students were undoubtedly given a little motivation to start their career at one of the top employer addresses.
In retrospect, we would all like to thank Mr. Niklas Jeschke for the exciting afternoon and his precious time. The shared experiences made it possible for all the students to have closer practical relevance, far off the beaten track of theory-based university life.
