"Language and numbers - for me it is the perfect combination. It's wonderful that I can combine both in my job as a finance consultant."

When Alina moved to Nijmegen, the Netherlands, to study, she became part of a nine-member shared apartment - with fellow students from all over the world. "Being able to combine my passion for other cultures and the English language with business studies was ideal for me," she says, "and because we always took turns cooking, I was able to indulge in another passion: my love of exotic dishes! Prior to her master's degree at Radboud University Nijmegen, Alina had already obtained a bachelor's degree in cultural studies at the University of Duisburg-Essen in 2016, including a semester abroad at the University of Chester in Great Britain. And also in the Bachelor's program - in addition to the business contents of the course - cultural aspects and the English language were in the foreground. During this time, Alina also got her first taste of the consulting industry: during her studies, she did an internship in a consulting firm with a focus on finance. After graduating with a Master's degree in Nijmegen in mid-2018, Alina also completed another "Finance" internship, this time at PricewaterhouseCoopers in Düsseldorf. Since the beginning of 2019 she is now employed at GAMBIT. And here she can combine her preferences and knowledge with her job: the love for the English language when it comes to working in international projects; and the soft spot for numbers and legal texts when everything revolves around the topic of finance when working for GAMBIT customers. Alina still accompanies her studies in Nijmegen to this day: "I am still in contact with many of my flatmates and will certainly visit them in their home countries", says Alina. "In any case, I have already had them all as guests in my home town of Oberhausen, at the most important cultural event of the year in the Rhineland - Carnival!"
