"The perfect combination of business informatics, data science and creativity".
Lea Mayer is passionate about the potential that lies within data and the many possibilities to visualise it. This is exactly what the dual student is currently learning in her business informatics studies with a focus on data science, and she has already learned what it means to have project responsibility. In her first four semesters, she gathered experience in a range of projects both at the university and in the company. During her international assignment Lea was also working on her own use case. In her interview, she tells us what creativity has to do with data and what experiences she has acquired through theory and practice.
The path that Lea Mayer has embarked upon with her dual business informatics studies is exactly the one that the 20-year-old wanted. This highly varied dual-studies program gives Lea the opportunity to indulge her interests and talents and to demonstrate her newly acquired knowledge in different projects. In her free time, she likes to express her artistic talents: Designing greetings cards is one of her favourite hobbies. Lea's interest in sport also began at a very early age. She has been doing ballet since she was four, a pursuit that provides a good balance to her day-to-day study routine. Lea's choice of dual-studies program is a perfect fit for the thematic field that she later wants to specialise in professionally. So the Stuttgart-born student has no need for a career "plan B", but if she were to pursue a completely different career, then it would be as a wedding planner, which would allow her to combine business administration, management and creativity in whole new ways.
