Johannes Goetz

I was born on 27 February 1988 in Cleves, a middle-sized German town near the Dutch border as the oldest of three sons. I spent my childhood and youth in this sheltered environment before seeking new challenges after my A-level exams. After a decisivie 9 months period in the elderly care at the German Red Cross I enrolled at Arnhem Business School, the Netherlands in 2007. Opting for International Business Administration, I have acquired in-depth knowledge as well as a broad variety of skills in this field. The international context of my studies at ABS were further deepened during a semester at San Francisco State University, California. This experience broadened my horizion substantially as I was constantly forced to leave my merely European perspective on economic, political and cultural issues. This made me a more independent and self-confident person. After my return to Europe, I applied for an internship at BSN Medical, Hamburg. Working in the marketing department of a leading pharmaceutical company, I could not only apply exisiting knowledge and skills but gain valuable experience in a prospering industry. Having returend to ABS to wrap-up my studies, I will start my graduation assignment in Spring 2012...
