Since October 2016 Nadine Artaz has been working at the iimt.
She grew up in Kottingbrunn, in the south of Vienna and obtained her Bachelor degree in Business Consultancy with the specialisations in Real Estate Management and Marketing at the University of Applied Sciences Wiener Neustadt in 2014. She could already gain some practical experiences during her studies. For example, she accomplished an internship in the department Water and Telecommunications at the company REHAU. Furthermore she has already worked in the field of Real Estate Valuation.
In spring 2015, she started her Master in Management at the University of Fribourg. The first time she got in touch with the iimt, was during the course “Management of the Energy sector”, which highly motivated her to take further iimt courses.
Nadine is glad to be able to also get involved with her sustainable project neunmalklug. at ideas@iimt.
We look forward to work with Nadine and wish her a good start.
