Up one level
Annette Schröter

Liberal Arts Majors: Economics and German
Minor: Global and International Studies
Hometown: Heidelberg, Germany

What was the best part of your experience?

The best part of this experience was getting exposure to a foreign country while also being able to complete an international internship. Along with other interns I was able to explore the country, but also we were able to reflect on each of our very different internships at the end day when we would come home.

How did this experience impact you academically?

I was able to utilize skills learned in my previous courses, such as econometrics and statistics, while performing research for my boss. I have taken courses in sustainability in the past, but did not realize how useful classes like that can be until this summer. The company had a lot to do with reducing food waste and packaging, and I was able to draw from my sustainability knowledge from those past courses.

How will this experience impact your career goals?

This experience opened my eyes to the fact that I do not want to work in business in the future. However it awakened my love for research and working independently on my own initiative. It has also affirmed that I would like to work in Europe long-term. My boss even offered to hire me if I am looking for employment after graduation!
