A UITM graduate of bachelor degree studies in Economics with specialisation in Aviation Management.
“I graduated in July 2014 and although I enjoyed the time living in Poland and studying at the University of Information Technology and Management, the language barrier made it hard for me to find a job there, so I tried my luck somewhere else.
Currently, I’m living in Stuttgart, Germany where I‘m completing a traineeship as a Financial Controller at Dialog Semiconductor. The company is a manufacturer of semiconductor-based system solutions. Their products are used mainly in mobile phones (IPhone and Samsung) and the automotive industry. It’s a medium sized company, as in 2013 it had approximately $910 million of revenue and approximately 1,100 employees worldwide. As a Financial Controller, I’m responsible for a number of tasks, ranging from product costing and inventory analysis to supporting month-end closing, such as accruals and central cost allocation bookings.
During my studies at UITM I gained a solid background in economics, which definitely helps me a lot in performing my daily tasks. Do I see my future related to aviation? Sure, but for the moment I would like to gain some experience in the financial sector and learn the local language.“
