Career Possibilities

Change Manager

Change Management involves all projects, activities, measures, and duties that affect wide-reaching changes in a business. For the most part, it involves pursuing new strategies, change developed strategies, updating technical and organizational systems, improving processes and procedures or shaping and changing the habits of organization employees. As a Change Manager, you will accompany and guide your company through these processes.

Project Manager

As a Project Manager, you would be holding all the reins for a company project. You would lead, organize, budget and keep a view of the bigger picture. You would be responsible for the planning, implementation, acceptance, and post-processing of projects. This can involve product launches, website relaunches, business restructuring, and similar projects. As part of these projects, your role would primarily be to coordinate and delegate the corresponding roles and be available as the project contact partner.


As a Consultant, you would consult various businesses. These consultations could be on general management of the business or how to go through a process of change. You would be required to adapt your basic consultation concept to the individual needs and assignments of your client without ignoring your employer’s – the consultancy – targets.
