We are happy to report on one of our successful internships by bachelor graduate Gioia Stanisavljevic as part of the LBS International Business Administration program. Gioia worked as a Management Trainee at LKW WALTER for the past six months and her experience was very rewarding.

As she explains in the interview: „I was relatively quickly allowed to participate operationally in the France-Czech Republic department, and have already supported the Division Manager, processed orders and even done some scheduling. As a part of the program I also attended the traineeship courses, where I got more of an inside knowledge regarding the logistics and transport itself.”

How well were you prepared for your internship after studying at LBS?

I think that I was very well prepared, studying at LBS gave me the broad perspective to see the whole area of transport and logistics in general. Moreover, regarding the cultural aspect, I think that the LBS environment provided me the skill to really understand the cultural differences and approaches varying from country to country.

Especially taking into consideration all the types of studies that we did in our cultural diversity classes. They were so applicable to the daily business at LKW Walter and I could really see it well, since the company is organizing transports all over the Europe, Russia and Africa. The departments are usually represented by people from the culture/country, so the employees are really able to understand the cultural needs and contexts in all different business aspects.

As my specialization at LBS was in finance, from this point of view the job itself was not really related, but on the other hand I could apply the general knowledge that I have built and gained during the whole bachelor program.”, explains the Serbian polyglot (fluent in six languages!) from Prague.

As to her future plans, Gioia will continue her studies on a master’s level, most probably in sales or business development. We wish her the best of luck for her future career aspirations!
