La­ris­sa, Se­bas­ti­an and Tim in Is­ma­ning

We (La­ris­sa, Se­bas­ti­an, Tim) are working in the cur­rent prac­ti­cal pha­se of our stu­dies at the company’s head­quar­ters in Is­ma­ning. This gi­ves us the op­por­tu­ni­ty to meet new teams. We would like to in­tro­du­ce you to the teams and our pro­jects:

My name is La­ris­sa and I’m stu­dy­ing In­ter­na­tio­nal Busi­ness-In­dus­tri­al Sales&Marketing.
Cur­r­ent­ly, I’m wri­ting my se­cond pro­ject the­sis about cus­to­mer pro­ject con­trol­ling in the Con­sul­ting and Im­ple­men­ta­ti­on (C&I) de­part­ment. C&I ma­na­ges va­rious pro­jects: They give the cus­to­mers ad­vice on the soft­ware so­lu­ti­ons and they sup­port them by the soft­ware so­lu­ti­ons’ in­te­gra­ti­on. Cus­to­mers can also par­ti­ci­pa­te in a training re­gar­ding the ques­ti­on “How to use the soft­ware?”.
In my pro­ject the­sis, I think about a pro­ject con­trol­ling tool fit­ting the C&I‑department. Then, I crea­te a con­cept de­scrib­ing how the pro­ject con­trol­ling could look like in the C&I‑department. In my opi­ni­on, it is a very in­te­res­ting to­pic be­cau­se I have al­rea­dy at­ten­ded lec­tures in pro­ject ma­nage­ment. The­re­fo­re, I can use my theo­re­ti­cal know­ledge for the pro­ject the­sis. And the team, of cour­se, sup­ports me very well!

My name is Se­bas­ti­an and I’m stu­dy­ing In­dus­tri­al En­gi­nee­ring with a fo­cus on sa­les. Here in Mu­nich, I’m working on a pro­ject wi­t­hin the de­part­ment C&I, which in­vol­ves de­ve­lo­ping an eva­lua­ti­on tool that can be used to select ex­ter­nal soft­ware com­pa­nies. Dif­fe­rent cri­te­ria have to be de­fi­ned and con­si­de­red in or­der to fi­nal­ly find the op­ti­ma pro­vi­der, so that the coope­ra­ti­on and ul­ti­mate­ly the who­le pro­ject can take a po­si­ti­ve cour­se. The col­leagues gree­ted us very friend­ly and were al­ways avail­ab­le for ques­ti­ons. As ano­t­her gre­at help in the dai­ly work the cof­fee ma­chi­ne tur­ned out to be a gre­at help, which we vi­si­ted of­ten…

My name is Tim and I’m stu­dy­ing Ap­p­lied Com­pu­ter Sci­ence and I’m cur­r­ent­ly wri­ting my prac­ti­cal work the­sis for the 5th se­mes­ter. I sup­por­ting the­re­for the Soft­ware De­ve­lo­p­ment Pro­cess So­lu­ti­ons Team. The team is re­spon­si­ble for the de­ve­lo­p­ment, main­ten­an­ce and ex­pan­si­on of our or­der soft­ware so­lu­ti­on. The or­der plat­form is lo­ca­ted in the B2B area and one of its tasks is to hand­le the or­de­ring pro­cess bet­ween buy­er and sup­plier. My task is to re­vi­se the cur­rent com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on du­ring the or­de­ring pro­cess. The soft­ware ar­chi­tec­tu­re is to be chan­ged. The team re­cei­ved me very friend­ly and I’m loo­king for­ward to this very ex­ci­ting pro­ject.

Af­ter a suc­cess­ful day we also wan­ted to see what’s go­ing on here in Mu­nich in the evening…. Af­ter we had un­ders­tood the time­ta­ble of the S‑Bahn, we star­ted to the first high­light in the back­stage, whe­re the band “Bad Man­ners” pro­vi­ded a gre­at at­mo­s­phe­re!


Gre­at at­mo­s­phe­re and gre­at mu­sic….. a per­fect end of a suc­cess­ful day!

Even though the lunch in the ca­fe­te­ria is re­al­ly good, we didn’t miss to try the sup­po­sed­ly best bur­ger in town…. and we were not disap­poin­ted, be­cau­se what the shop ‘Tas­te my Bur­ger’ put on our pla­tes was re­al­ly out­stan­ding!

Re­sult: We are de­fi­ni­te­ly co­m­ing back!

This was not the only time we had lunch af­ter work, be­cau­se af­ter out ar­ri­val in Is­ma­ning we were in­vi­ted di­rect­ly to the C&I din­ner at Jan’s bis­tro and had the op­por­tu­ni­ty to get to know the em­ployees of this de­part­ment bet­ter. Col­leagues from lo­ca­ti­ons out­side Ger­ma­ny were also pre­sent.

But the­re were even more high­lights du­ring our time…. Let’s go again towards the S‑Bahn, the first one just mis­sed, but the se­cond one brought us to our de­sti­na­ti­on….

In fine win­ter wea­ther we went off to the Am­pere, whe­re Nick Wood­land, li­ving rock’ n’ roll and blues gui­tar le­gend, with his band hea­ted up the au­di­ence….

Ano­t­her gre­at evening in Mu­nich!

Oh yes, the­re was so­me­thing go­ing on at the com­pa­ny. A fal­se alarm in the ear­ly morning hours en­su­red that we had to en­du­re and in­vol­un­ta­ry stay of 20 mi­nu­tes in the free­zing cold out­side. The fire bri­ga­de was quick­ly on the spot and so it was pos­si­ble to con­ti­nue quick­ly.

As you can see, the­re is al­ways so­me­thing go­ing on with us…

Al­ways nice to get the op­por­tu­ni­ty to work at dif­fe­rent lo­ca­ti­ons. Whe­ther it’s Co­lo­gne, Wei­kers­heim or Mu­nich, every lo­ca­ti­on is dif­fe­rent, but each time it’s to­tal­ly in­te­res­ting. We will glad­ly come back!
