Nikolaus Waldenmair is a student of the Master in Digital Transformation Leadership and comes from Austria. For him, living in Barcelona is having a positive impact in his life, allowing him to meet a lot of new international people and to get a new world perspective.
What inspired you to study abroad?
I decided to study abroad to see more of the world from my perspective and also to meet international people.
How is living in Barcelona?
Living Barcelona is very nice. The city is really beautiful and very modern. Plus, there are thriving start-ups here. Last but not least, there’s an intense night life, events and congresses. It’s really enjoyable living here.
How do you see yourself in future?
I don’t really know yet, where I’ll end up in the future. My goal is to see a wide variety of different things, including consultancy in an agency and working in business development for an international corporation. Only the future will tell where I’ll end up.
Are you developing new skills?
I do think studying at BTS is helping me developing new skills, among other things professional and personal development that will eventually help me to figure out what I’ll do in my future work life.
Why would you recommend Barcelona Technology School?
I would recommend it, mainly because of my fellow students. We are a really international team with people coming from over 8 different countries and 3 different continents with all kind of backgrounds, which is really interesting to me. Most importantly, we get along really nicely, either working on a project or going out together. It is really enjoyable, and I really like them.
Is this time abroad impacting your life?
I do think that my time abroad here in Barcelona is having a positive impact in my life mainly because of two things: first, I’m meeting a lot of international and very nice people, secondly, I get to see so many new things that I would have missed out if I’d stayed in Vienna.
How is your experience at Barcelona Technology School?
My overall experience here at BTS is great, because we have an interesting schedule for the classes, inspiring teachers, and, like I said, I really enjoy the students I’m studying here with. Altogether, this creates a very wholesome experience.
